2015 Sharp tablet to feature IGZO and MEMS technology


There’s some news today that will particularly interest readers who have an interest in display technology. A new Sharp tablet has just been announced by the company that will release next year and bring something new to the scene. This 2015 Sharp tablet is to feature both IGZO and MEMS technology.

The tablet hasn’t been named yet but will pack a high-speed display with thin panels for energy-saving effectiveness. IGZO technology is already used for Sharp TV’s and some smartphones, and is made from materials that are different to normal LCD screens. MEMS technology is rather newer and comes from Qualcomm.

The amalgamation of the two kinds of display technology allows for low power consumption but with high color reproduction and superb visibility. Only recently the companies announced that they would be working together on a device using MEMS-IGZO that would appear in 2017, but work seems to have been flying along so fast that the new tablet is now expected to release in the first half of 2015. However, market availability hasn’t been announced yet.

Specs of the upcoming Sharp tablet include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and a 7-inch display with resolution of 1280 x 800, and it will run Android 4.4 KitKat. It will also be waterproof to IPX5 and IPX7 certification standard and come in WiFi as well as LTE/3G models.

It will be interesting to hear further developments on this Sharp tablet and we’ll bring more as we hear it. Are you intrigued by the use of IGZO and MEMS technology for this upcoming tablet?
