Earlier this year, Panasonic Toughpad - a 20 inch huge tablet came to our notice when it employed a 4K resolution. But it was quite heavy to be considered as a tablet. On the other hand, Toshiba also recently announced a 15.6-inch laptop with the same high-grade 4K resolution. But again a normal hand-held tablet with a 4K display was missing in the market.
But now it looks like a 10 inch tablet with a 4K resolution will hit the market shelves soon. This can be said as Japan Display (JDI) has announced today the first 4K display panel measuring 10.1-inch display. This display comes with an LCD panel with a whooping 3840 x 2160 pixels of 4K resolution churning out the pixel density of 438ppi.
Reportedly, the company used a regular RGB pixel matrix, with no PenTile or "Diamond pixels" shenanigans, in order to get the noted resolution. Also to cut down the power consumption, the company used the frugal LTPS (low temperature poly silicon) technology.
For the sake of comparison, we have so far seen only Samsung's Galaxy Tab PRO 8.4, with a 359ppi with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.
The latest display panel from JDI is impressive not only because it features 4K resolution but also, it is one of the latest panels which employ 1100:1 contrast ratio, a 160-degree viewing angle, and a brightness strength of 400 nits, which benchmarks the level in the IPS-LCD tablet display segment.
However, the company has not disclosed any manufacturer names which could have possible show interest in its latest product.
