Qualcomm 2560 x 1440 Mirasol smartphone screen
Check out this demonstration of Qualcomm's upcoming Mirasol displays at the SID Display Week 2013 expo. The most interesting prototye was a 5.1" panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1440, a pixel density of 577ppi! Besides the ultra-high resolution, this screen also has the advantage of using 6x less power than LCD and OLED displays. It's still a couple of years away from being ready for mass production though.
We got a look at a previously announced 1.5-inch panel embedded on the top of an "always-on" smartphone and on the face of a smartwatch. Though a rep took care to emphasize that these were just mockups, he said the screen will soon show up in some third-party devices.
More interesting, though, was the company's next-gen display: a 5.1-inch panel sporting a stunning 2,560 x 1,440 (577 ppi) resolution. Viewed up close, it delivers crisp images, but the reflective display kicks back a silvery tint and colors don't pop as they do on other handsets.
