When Steve Jobs unveiled the retina display of the iPhone 4, I thought that once again, Apple was years ahead of the competition in terms of development, but Ortustech, in a joint venture with Casio and Toppan, have one upped Apple at their own game with the world’s tiniest full HD display, making the retina display look downright pixelated.
The display uses Ortustech’s HAST (Hyper Amorphous Silicon TFT) microfabrication technology, which squeezes in 458 pixels per inch, compared to the retina display’s 326 pixels per inch. On top of that, the HAST display allows for 160 degree visibility and supports 16 million colors. Is the human eye capable of noticing the difference between the retina and a HAST display? That is yet to be seen. But something tells me it all depends on the eye.
