JDIs new 1920 x 1200 7" display could pave the way for efficient high-res 7in tablets

Japan Display Inc. has announced the development of a seven-inch WhiteMagic WUXGA (Wide Ultra Extended Graphics Array) LCD display. The display has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and features WhiteMagic technology that incorporates adding a white subpixel to the RGB pixels to better control the brightness of the LCD.

WhiteMagic display technology was first seen in Sony’s flagship handsets a couple of years ago. This will be the first time the technology is being used in a larger display with the main benefit being that it can reduce power consumption up to 40%. JDI is currently shipping samples of the seven-inch display, which would ideally be used for tablets.

Japan Display Inc. WUXGA display specifications:

  • Screen size (diagonal) 7.0-inch (17.8cm) 
  • Number of pixels 1200(x RGB) x 1920 (WQHD)
  • Resolution density 323ppi
  • Dimensions 98.7 mm (W) x 160.8 mm (H) x 1.8mm (D)
  • NTSC ratio 72 %

  • Viewing angle >160 degree (CR>100:1)
  • Surface luminance 500 cd/m2 (low power mode) 1000 cd/m2 (outdoor mode)

As a supplier of displays for Apple, JDI announced an even more impressive LCD, which is rumored to be in production for Apple’s upcoming handset, the iPhone 6.
