Apr 11, 2014, 11:40 AM by Eric M. Zeman
AU Optronics recently unveiled a high-resolution screen for smartphones. The AMOLED panel measures 5.7 inches across the diagonal and has QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. AU says the panel has a pixel density of 513 pixels per inch. To put that in perspective, Apple's iPhone 5s has 326 pixels per inch and the Samsung Galaxy S4 has 441 pixels per inch. The new screen makes use of in-cell touch technology, which helped AU Optronics keep the thickness at 0.57mm. The drivers for the panel allow for up to 10 points of touch input. AU Optronics didn't say when the panel would reach mass production for devices. The company also revealed a high-contrast 1.6-inch AMOLED for wearable devices. AU Optronics claims both screens are power efficient.
