ARM has unveiled the Mali-DP650 4K-enabled mobile display processor specially designed for mobile devices to drive power efficiency, appealing visual content, and superior gaming experiences for users. It will also work perfectly for consumers who desire to switch from mobile device screens to 4K smart television among other larger digital screens.

“The Mali-DP650 display processor will enable mobile screens with multiple composition layers, for graphics and video, at Full HD (1920x1080 pixels) resolutions and beyond while maintaining excellent picture quality and extending battery life,” said Mark Dickinson, general manager, media processing group, ARM.
Dickinson added that tablets and smartphones are fast becoming devices that enable consumers to download digital content which are then viewed later on larger screens such as TVs and projectors among others. According to him, the ARM Mali display technology will make it very easy for users to watch content downloaded on their mobile devices on larger screens.
The ARM Mali-DP650 is developed to support different display resolutions, and it is highly optimized for 2.5K formats including WQXGA (2560x1600 pixels) for tablets and WQHD (2560x1440 pixels) for a mobile screen. Considering the possibility of streaming 4K (3840x2160 pixels) content already downloaded or viewing on mobile devices onto larger screens makes the Mali-DP650 a most-promising mobile display processor for all to have.
According to Lingyun Shi, director of research, BOE Technology Group, a leading supplier of semiconductor display technologies, products and services, the mobile market is fast transcending Full HD at the moment, with 2.5K being the most popular choice currently and 4K becoming a priority target.

“BOE and ARM have formed a valuable partnership to ensure each other’s complementing display products are future-proofed,” Shi explained. “The ARM Mali-DP650 display processor caters to this as it is optimized for 2.5K but is also 4K capable, and by using split display mode to double the available pixel data rate along with a variable refresh it enables higher resolutions in a highly energy-efficient way.”
