Sharp has started production of 5-inch full-HD (1,080 x 1,920 pixels) LCD panels for smartphones with a pixel density among the highest in the world. This Sharp LCD panel employs CG-Silicon technology, a new pixel design, and an innovative production process to achieve the same number of pixels in a smartphone-size screen as there are in a full-HD LCD TV. The panel, which has approximately 1.3 times the pixel density of conventional LCD panels, can display crisp text, super-clear maps, and amazingly real HD images.
By providing ultra-detailed LCD panels to support the growing worldwide demand for smartphones, Sharp will contribute to smartphones with increasingly higher quality images. Production began at the end of September at Mie Plant No. 3 and full-scale production will begin in October. Sharp of 5-inch full-HD (1,080 x 1,920 pixels) LCD panels for smartphones will be displayed in the Sharp booth at CEATEC Japan 2012.
