Japan Display has teased that it has developed an ultra-high resolution 4K x 2K LCD that is perfect for tablets, which would see 10.1-inch tablets arrive with 4K displays.

Not only that, these new displays are also very energy efficient, with power consumption close to current 10.1-inch WQXGA LCD-based modules with 2560x1600 as its resolution, as it uses low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) technology. The new displays pack in an insane 438 pixels per inch (PPI), an 160-degree viewing angle, 1100:1 contrast ratio and 400cd/m2 surface luminance.

These new 4K-capable displays are already shipping to some potential customers of Japan Display, so we should expect these new displays to reach consumers' tablets before the year is over.
