LG bringing high-res tablet, smartphone, and TV screens to CES

LG is doubling down on high-res displays at CES 2013. The company will be showing several TVs, monitors, smartphones, and tablets.

As a person who reviews both monitors and tablets, display quality is of particular interest to me. And early next month at CES 2013, LG intends to give me a reason to be excited. However, the company has not confirmed that the following display technologies will be attached to actual products; only that differently sized, impressively specced displays will be showcased. And by "showcased" I mean shown at a "private" booth at the show. But I'm not yet sure exactly what that means.

LG will demo several Ultra High Definition (UHD) TVs at three different sizes: 84-inch, 65-inch, and 55-inch. All sport resolutions of 3,840x2,160 pixels and feature the company's passive 3D technology.

Possibly the most exciting demo (at least for me) will be a 30-inch, 4,096x2,160-pixel-resolution monitor. Extreme definition monitors have previously topped out at 2,560x1,600 pixels, and LG says its new display will appeal to medical professionals and designers, but I'm personally more interested in how video games running at its native resolution will look on it.

On the mobile end, LG will demo a full HD (at least 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution), 5.5-inch smartphone display with a 403 ppi and a 7-inch tablet display sporting a 1,920x1,200-pixel resolution and 324 ppi. It'll also show a 12.9-inch, 2,560x1,700-pixel-resolution laptop panel, which would deliver a higher ppi than the MacBook Pro with Retina Display.

Thin bezels will also get some love. We'll see a narrow-bezel monitor with a 23.8-inch screen and a 13.3-inch laptop panel with a bezel measuring less than 2mm (0.07 inch) thick, and a 4.7-inch display with a 1mm (0.03 inch) bezel.

LG will also show a 3.5kg (7.7-pound), 4mm (0.15-inch) thick 55-inch OLED WRGB TV display.

Like I previously mentioned, these will all purportedly be displayed in a private booth, so hopefully we'll actually get a chance to get some up-close-and-personal time with them.
