Sharp starts mass production of Full HD (1080p), 443 PPI 5 inch smartphone displays

Japanese giant Sharp announced that it’s starting mass-production of 5 inch smartphone displays with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) this month.

At 443 PPI, the new displays have the highest pixel density ever achieved on a smartphone screen. The highest current density is around 340 PPI (Sony Xperia V, Xperia S, and HTC Rezound have it).

China-based Oppo has already confirmed that it’s getting ready to launch an Android smartphone with a 5 inch 1080p display. HTC may be also among the first to introduce such a handset – possibly called HTC One X 5, or Google Nexus 5. I assume both devices will use Sharp-made screens. We’ll bring more on this as soon as new info emerges.

    It’s been very nice enjoying one of the best displays in my HTC Rezound! If HTC gets the next Nexus handset with the new Sharp screen, I’m going to be VERY interested!
