sharp hi dpiSharp is one of the names that more often than not creeps up whenever we talk about a new display from Apple, and true to form, here is yet another bit of news that concerns Sharp being involved with Apple yet again – or rather, whispers, that Sharp’s production of 32″ Hi-DPI LCDs displays from last month onwards would finally see action in Apple’s upcoming new range of iMacs that are tipped to arrive later this June.

In fact, Sharp is said to have reorganized their Kameyama Plant No. 2 in order for them to focus on the production of small- and medium-sized LCD panels which will see action in smartphones and tablets. These new displays will employ advanced IGZO oxide semiconductors, giving Sharp the ability to produce LCDs with smaller thin-film transistors as well as a higher level of pixel transparency while lowering energy consumption.

These new displays will come in sizes of 7″, 10″ and 32″, where the 32″ version that boasts a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution does not sound quite right for an Apple TV, it might just sneak in through the back door as an Apple product in the form of an iMac.
