The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Japanese manufacturer Sharp is in serious talks with a number of US companies to try and save its finances. It plans to offer up stakes in the business in return for a "stable supply of breakthrough display technology".
Sharp's new monitor promises to be something special, offering up 4K resolution powered by ultra-thin IGZO technology to make for a ridiculously high-res but sleek display. It's going to be gorgeous. But it comes at a price.
All signs point to the fact that Sharp is one of the manufacturers of the next iPhone display. In fact, the phone might even use Sharp's new IGZO technology. But if Wall Street Journal's reports that Sharp has halted production of the displays due to problems are true, you might wanna be among the first to preorder…
There's a rumor floating around today that the next iPhone will use a thinner display technology made by Sharp. But what does that actually mean for you? Maybe insanely good battery life. Or, perhaps a 4G LTE iPhone that can make it through the day.
If you thought the pixel density wars were going to stall out with Apple's 326ppi Retina display and its qHD cohorts, you are oh so mistaken. Sharp is working on their next-generation IGZO display technology, which includes a 6-inch display with a 2500x1600 resolution, good for a pixel density of 498ppi.
