The World's Smallest Full HD Display

The iPhone 4's Retina Display is 3.5 inches with a resolution of 960x640 and a pixel density of 326ppi. Pretty much everyone agrees it looks great. So how incredible must this 4.8-inch, 1920×1080, 458ppi display look?

ORTUS, a collaborative venture between Casio and Toppan Printing, announced the Hyper Amorphous Silicon TFT (HAST) display today in Japan. The company claims it's up to 30 per cent brighter than other TFT displays.

The new display is reportedly capable of producing 16.8 million colours and has a viewing angle of 160 degrees. But if the Retina Display, as Apple claims, is pushing up against the threshold for the human eye, is ORTUS's added pixel density really that important? I'm reserving judgment until I can watch The Dark Knight on the thing. [CrunchGear]
