Sharp to begin full-scale production of ultra-sharp touchscreen for phones

Sharp, which makes the 4-inch display for the iPhone 5, has now revealed that it started producing 5-inch displays that have 1,920x1,080 resolution. They also promise to be ultra-sharp, thanks to their record 443ppi density. To compare, the iPhone 5's screen houses 1,136x640 pixels at a density of 326ppi.

The closest and previous record-holder was LG's 5-inch AH-IPS screen that has the same dimensions and resolution, but peaks at 440ppi.

Sharp's panel type 5 screen uses CG-Silicon technology that's said to allow reducing the amount of layers in it. The screen will go into full-scale production later in October. While there is no word on what devices will actually use the screen yet, Apple's upcoming iterations of the iPhone and iPod touch are a good bet.

The touchscreen will be demonstrated at CEATEC Japan show that kicks off on Tuesday.

    Why bother? Once you go beyond the ability to perceive the individual pixels, there's no advantage.

    Prediction: Android fanboys will use as "proof" that their Galaxi IV, V, or whatever has a "better" screen than the iPhone.
