Ortus Technologies Full HD 4.8-inch display makes Retina Display look low-res

There's plenty of argument over what distance you should be sitting from an HDTV in order to make the most of Full HD resolution, so we can only imagine the heated debate over Ortus Technology's new Full HD MID-scale panel.  The 4.8-inch display runs at 1920 x 1080 resolution for a whopping 458 pixels per inch; in contrast, Apple's lauded Retina Display manages a "mere" 326 ppi.

Toshiba Halts OLED Production, Focuses on LCD Instead

For the most part, Samsung has a pretty big stake in the OLED manufacturing market.
