New Fujitsu LIFEBOOK UH90 Comes with 3200 x 1800p Touch Display

Fujitsu has just announced the existence of the LIFEBOOK UH90, a 14-inch Windows 8 business Ultrabook with the huge display resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels. That translates to a pixel density of 262ppi, which is closer to that of smartphones, and higher than that of the Chromebook Pixel. The display is made from indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) technology, which is supposed to consume less power, and have higher sensitivity compared to a traditional LCD TFT display. 

In order to let users fully utilize Windows 8, the UH90 will also come with a multi-touch built into its display. The touch panel will have a special surface coat called the Super Glide Coating, which supposedly reduces friction, allowing your fingers to slide effortlessly around the display. 

From the looks of it, the UH90 -- successor of the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK U772 (or UH75) -- has a mostly aluminum build, and an "ultra-compressed, solid core" design, which means it's able to withstand quite a bit of abuse (about 200kgf). Fujitsu also managed to keep the UH90's thickness extremely thin at 15.5mm (0.1mm thinner than the U772), and are calling it the world's thinnest Ultrabook (with HDD). 

As for its internal components, the UH90 runs on a new 4th generation Intel Core i5 (Haswell) processor, which is more than enough to power the higher resolution display. The UH90 will also feature a 500GB hybrid HDD, which gives users fast start-up and resume times, and plenty of storage space. 

According to Fujitsu, the UH90 will be available in Japan on June 28, 2013. There is no further information on when the UH90 will be available outside of Japan, but keep a lookout here for updates here if you're interested.
