Sharp to bring out ultrathin IGZO LED display

The Japanese display maker is going to sell an ultrathin IGZO LED display from early next year onwards.

Sharp said on Wednesday that it will launch sales of a Full HD 3, 840×2, 160 resolution 32-inch LED-backlit display starting on February 15, 2013.

Including the chassis, the model PN-K321 display is 35mm thick and compatible with DisplayPort and HDMI connectors.

Sharp’s production target is 1500 units a month. No pricing was disclosed.

Apple is rumoured to have had an eye on IGZO technology for the iPad, because IGZO has an extremely high resolution yet thin display.

Furthermore, Sharp also plans to sell denser small displays. A month ago, the company said it has begun production of a 5-inch 1,080×1,920 display. That is a pixel density of 443 pixels per inch (ppi). Apple’s iPhone 5 has a pixel density of 326ppi.
