Fujitsu will soon launch a new 14-inch ultrabook that boasts a screen resolution of 3,200x1,800 pixels.

The upcoming Lifebook UH90/L uses Sharp's IGZO technology to attain its high resolution. Equipped with a density of 262 pixels per inch, the display offers 2.7 times the detail of a full HD screen. Text appears sharper and is easier to read, and photos are more vivid, according to Fujitsu.

Outfitted with Windows 8, the touch-enabled notebook is powered by a fourth-generation Intel "Haswell" Core i5 chip. It also offers a 500GB hybrid hard disk that combines solid-state storage with the standard mechanical drive.

Dubbing the UH90/L the world's thinnest ultrabook, Fujitsu said that it squeezes a 14-inch display into a standard 13-inch form factor.

The UH90/L will be available in Japan starting June 7. Fujitsu was mum about any plans to launch the laptop in other countries. A company spokesperson told CNET that "we don't have any information we can disclose at this time."

Other products in Fujitsu's future include enhanced versions of its AH45/K and AH42/K 15.6-inch notebooks and a 23-inch all-in-one desktop PC equipped with eye-tracking technology.
