World’s smallest LCD will full HD resolution is 4.8-inches

You know how you get to enjoy fantastic 1080p action with your Blu-ray player and your 48-inch high-definition television? Well, you just may be able to do the same thing on this 4.8-inch display. Yes, about the same size as the Dell Streak.

The screen comes by way of ORTUS, a joint venture between Casio and Toppan Printing. The Hyper Amorphous Silicon TFT (HAST) screen rocks an impressive 1920 x 1080 resolution, resulting in a pixel density of 458ppi. To put that into perspective, the Retina Display on the iPhone 4 has a pixel density of 326ppi. The HTC Droid Incredible? Just 252ppi.

If you didn’t know any better, you’d think that they took a giant HDTV and shrunk it down to handheld proportions. In addition to the full HD resolution, the ORTUS screen rocks 16.8 million colors and 160-degree viewing angles. I can’t imagine it being all that cheap, though, so I wouldn’t expect to find it in an iPhone 5 or a Droid OMG any time soon.

It may not show up on a phone and they say that it’ll likely be used for security monitoring, but I think it’d be great for mobile TV or even Streak-sized tablet devices. That’s a heck of a lot better than the lowly QVGA resolution screen on my Nokia E71, that’s for sure.
