We have seen some Sharp MEMS/IGZO displays at CEATEC 2013 which concluded earlier this month, and those were definitely mouth watering screens to feast one’s eyes upon. The resolution count is definitely a whole lot higher than what we are used to on regular smartphones, and it is nice to hear that Sharp will be delivering high definition IGZO displays to smartphones soon, as production of these displays are touted […]
[CEATEC 2013] If you thought that your small tablet or smartphone has one of the best displays that you have ever laid your eyes upon, think again. Sharp could very well change the way things work in the future with their Sharp MEMS/IGZO Display. MEMS stands for MicroElectroMechanical Systems, and IGZO is the acronym for Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide, where the latter would allow higher resolution displays to enjoy a […]
[CEATEC 2013] We have seen TVs go from their large and fat form factors to being as slim as possible, and all the while that is happening, there was work done to increase the resolution count. Our minds were blown away when we first saw the visual quality difference between video CDs and DVDs, and the jump to Blu-ray discs (a moment of silence for the fallen HD DVD format, […]
Apple has reportedly decided to shift to IGZO based displays for its products from next year, the 2014 MacBook lineup is said to feature IGZO displays.
Japanese company Sharp was recently rumored to ramp up production of iPhone 5S displays when June 2013 rolls around, in addition to entering a strategic alliance with South Korean conglomerate Samsung recently. Well, here we are with word that Sharp is currently working on producing HiDPI IGZO LCD panels, where these panels have been touted to deliver the highest pixel density of any display that Sharp has ever made to […]
There were rumors that Apple could be ditching Sharp due to the Japanese company’s inability to meet the demand in the production of display panels used for Apple’s iOS devices, but according to Digitimes that might not be the case as it seems that Apple is reportedly still in talks with Sharp over the possible incorporation of its IGZO display panels in future products. Assuming these talks are successful, Apple […]
All right, your eyes might go a little bit bonkers there, but what we are trying to do is draw your attention to the Sharp Aquos Pad SHT21. It carries the new IGZO LCD technology from Sharp, and according to Japanese carrier KDDI, the Sharp Aquos Pad SHT21 is tipped to debut this coming middle of December, where the 7” tablet is touted to come with more than double the […]
[CEATEC 2012] All right, Sharp is really pushing the boundaries when it comes to the resolution count on tiny displays where smartphones and other portable devices are concerned. I am referring to this 6.1″ IGZO display that will carry a phenomenal 498ppi, definitely a pixel density count that is far higher than any other which we have seen in the past and on current devices, making us wonder if someone […]
Expert claims Apple used older display technology in their new iPads as Sharp's IGZO displays weren't ready yet
One of the more impressive features of Apple’s new iPad is the introduction of the Retina display that offers iPad owners a whopping resolution of 2048×1536. While we’re sure that many the layman are impressed by those numbers, it has been reported by the president of DisplayMate Technologies, Raymond Soneira (via CNET) that the iPad 3 is actually Apple’s Plan B. According to Soneira, Apple had originally intended to use […]
We reported late last year that Apple might turn to Sharp’s IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) displays for their upcoming iPad 3 tablet, and here is another bit of news that might actually confirm this particular rumor. After all, Sharp is currently ramping up their production lines to deliver huge quantities of IGZO displays, and interestingly enough, none of these are available commercially. With so much supply, surely it must […]
There has been a lot of rumors being thrown out surrounding Apple’s next-generation iPad that many are expecting to see a launch in Q1 of 2012 at the very earliest, and earlier reports have suggested that the iPad 3 would be seeing a new display that would be basically be the iPad’s version of the iPhone’s Retina display.
