8K OLED displays for tablets and notebooks are in the works

If you love ultra high-resolution displays, Japan's Semiconductor Energy Laboratory has 8K OLED displays in the works that could be used for tablets and notebooks in the future.

The displays come in 8.3 and 13.3 inches and will support a resolution of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels. This gives the smaller 8.3-inch display a pixel density count of a whopping 1,062 PPI. The larger 13.3-inch has a pixel density count of 663 PPI - nearly three times that of a MacBook Air's Retina display.

The 8.3-inch display will be ideal for tablets whereas the 13.3-inch display is perfect for ultraportable notebooks.

Both panels use panels are made using crystalline oxide semiconductor technology, specifically c-axis aligned crystalline indium gallium zinc oxide material or CAAC-IGZO.

The smaller 8.3-inch panel has a refresh rate of 60 Hz while the larger 13.3-inch panel is faster with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.

Since Semiconductor Energy Laboratory doesn't have its own manufacturing facility, there's no word yet on when we could see these new displays appearing in devices.

The company is currently looking for a manufacturing partner and working on making these new displays suitable for mass production.
