When it comes to display technology, nothing surprises me these days. Manufacturers try all they can to be the first ones to have the best and future proof displays on their devices.
The latest manufacturer to join this list is Japan Display. The company recently announced the world’s first 17.3-inch 8K LCD panel. This display is really pushing the resolution to a higher level even before 4K adoption goes mainstream.
In a statement, Japan Display said, “The LCD module, based on low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) technology with true 8K pixels (RGB stripe arrangement), realizes high definition (510ppi) images, and the 120Hz frame rate enables smooth playback of moving image. By providing wide viewing angle, high contrast and little color shift, the advantages of IPS technology enable reproduction of life-like 8K image with a sense of depth in image quality.”
Having such display is really interesting and it will be interesting to see if other manufacturers follow this very soon.
The company went ahead to say, “This next-generation 8K technology suits not only products for video image production, but also medical monitors and gaming PC monitors which require, high resolution and depth in image quality, and many more.”
I would personally like to see this display in action just out of curiosity. We will be getting more images of this display later this week as the company officially reveals it to the world.
