Analyst: Apple a ‘prime candidate’ to adopt Sharp’s IGZO display technology in future devices

“During its media briefing at the Consumer Electronics Show, Sharp stressed the importance of IGZO technology for the company’s future,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider. “Also participating in the IGZO demonstration was Corning, which took the wraps off of its third-generation Gorilla Glass at this week’s show.”

“In attendance for Sharp’s event was analyst Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets, who lauded the abilities of IGZO technology,” Hughes reports. “Sharp’s advanced displays were described as having twice the resolution of a conventional LCD screen with up to 90 percent power savings.”

Hughes reports, “‘Even after turning off the power of a device, IGZO allows the image to continue to be displayed on the screen,'” White explained. He said he believes Apple is a ‘prime candidate’ to adopt IGZO in future devices.”

  1. There is nothing to believe, because back in 2011 Apple has made significant investments in Sharp’s IGZO production lines; this one of the last Jobs’ strategic decisions.

    Apple might be able to use not only smaller IGZO panels, but bigger ones, too. Like 55″ (not announced by Sharp), for example.
