This week Sharp unveiled its IGZO technology at CES 2013. This innovative technology could be used by Apple for the display of its future mobile devices. IGZO is an acronym derived from the materials that make up the advanced panels.
During his press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show, Sharp stressed the importance of IGZO technology. The presentation of IGZO also included Corning, the third generation of Gorilla Glass presented at the show this week.
The event of Sharp was also attended by analyst Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets, who praised the ability of IGZO technology.
“Even after turning off the power of a device, IGZO allows the image to continue to be displayed on the screen. I also believe that Apple may be a good candidate to use this new type of display.”
A report last year confirmed that Apple has tested some panels IGZO on the third-generation iPad, but the technology was not yet ready for production in series and then was postponed its use.
In December there were new rumors, which claim that Apple is still considering the IGZO technology for the next generation of the iPhone and iPad.
