Japan screen manufacturer Sharp is starting “full-scale” production of a new 5-inch 1080p display for smartphones that has an incredible pixel density of 443ppi. The company has announced that manufacturing started late last month, and it will ramp up production through October. The new display will apparently feature “a new pixel design,” and will be 1.3 times denser than Sharp’s own industry-leading 4.3-inch 720p display. A few companies have already demoed 5-inch displays in the past, but this is the first to enter a full production. The only 1080p phone announced so far is the Oppo Finder 5 from China, and rumors of a 5-inch HTC superphone has been planned. We hope Sharp’s new display, coupled with a deal to provide Apple with iPhone 5 displays, will help it to recover from its ongoing financial crisis.
