Hitachi LCD does glasses-free 3D display and features pixel density of Retina display.

Step aside iPhone 4 and your Retina display, Hitachi has just unveiled its 4.5-inch glasses-free 3D display with an equally impressive pixel density of 326 ppi. That’s right, Retina sharp graphics on a larger four an a half inch display, but running at 1280 x 720 pixel resolution.

Not only is Hitachi’s 4.5-inch glasses-free 3D display razor sharp, it’s also an IPS LCD display. That means you can expect incredible viewing angles and color accuracy, but most importantly — visibility in direct sunlight. These are not the only tricks Hitachi is bringing to the table.

One of the biggest complaints with current 3D technology is that the picture lacks the brightness and vibrance of a 2D set. Hitachi has addressed this issue in its new panel with the surpassing ability to be brighter in 3d mode than it is in 2D. This is accomplished by used a more efficient lenticular lens technology. A technology used in the parallax barrier method to create glasses-free stereoscopic 3D effect.

Hitachi has not announced when its new display will be available. If HTC and LG are smart, they’ll be quick to lock down the display for the next generation EVO 3D and Optimus 3D. Let’s just hope the phones will fit in our pockets.
