Digitimes Research: In-cell touch panel technology expected to see production breakthrough in 2014
Jen-Chieh Yang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 13 January 2014]

Sharp, Japan Display and LG Display are all expected to make breakthroughs in producing TFT LCD panels with in-cell touch technology in 2014. Previously, due to production constraints with the technology panel makers were only able to produce panels around 300ppi but that resolution is expected to jump in 2014, according to Digitimes Research.

On-cell touch panels meanwhile can only achieve resolution around 200ppi on LCD applications. The technology is expected to be used mostly in entry-level to mid-range smartphones from China vendors in 2014, added Digitimes Research.
