Remember back in mid-April Sharp promised that it will be bringing the first-ever IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) LCDs displays? Well, the company kept its word and unveiled LCD and OLED display panels based on the new indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) technology.
The new technology enables the production of much smaller LCD transistors on thin-film with properties that make them near-enough fully transparent, which allows the technology to achieve power savings of up to 90 per cent.
The LCD screens have been specifically designed for Smartphones and Tablets. There seems to be a 4.9 inch LCD (720 x 1280) screen with pixel density at 302 ppi; another is a 6.1 inch (2560 x 1600) LCD display with pixel density at 498 ppi. These are believed to use in upcoming smartphones.
Aside of these screens, company has also unveiled the flexible 3.4-inch 540 x 960 screen with pixel density at 326 ppi (image shown above), and OLED panels, one 13.5-inch (3840 x 2160) QFHD panel at 326 ppi based on White OLEDs with RGB color filters.
The new screens are expected to be integrated onto their devices at the end of this year. So for sure we won’t have to wait much longer, meanwhile check back often here at TS for more.
