Sharp began mass production of displays based on the films of indium oxide, gallium, and zinc (IGZO) for smartphones. Size of dots on the screens is smaller than liquid crystal displays made according to conventional techniques, and therefore the resolution and image sharpness can be increased. As reported by DigiTimes, the Japanese manufacturer does not rule out the possibility of producing such screens for smartphones next-generation iPhone, which is expected to release next year.

According to Sharp, screens, made by technology IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide), mobile devices provide several competitive advantages. Firstly, the technology allows you to see the display even after the power is turned off, saving battery power while displaying a still image by 80-90%. Smartphones and tablets with IGZO-displays can have an ultra-thin frame and have a level of sensitivity to the touch “at the level of ordinary paper.” Another feature of these screens – their increased transparency of pixels and the surface of the screen, thinner and smaller transistors reaction time.


Sharp itself within the close to future plans to unencumber on sale in Japan two fashions of good telephones with monitors IGZO. The primary of them – Aquos Telephone Zeta SH-01F – has a reveal with a diagonal of 5 inches and a decision of the structure Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels). A version Aquos Telephone EX SH-02F similar collection of factors match on the reveal with a diagonal of four.7-inch. As a consequence, the reveal decision is 487 dpi. When put next, the iPhone 5s monitor with a diagonal of four inches has a decision of 1136 x 640 pixels, which corresponds to 326 dots per inch.

In Sharp predict increase favourite for prime-decision displays in keeping with the expansion admired for smartphones. With know-how IGZO monitors are competing expertise of natural mild emitting diode (OLED) know-how and new LCD displays, permitting us to make the displays curved.
