Sharp has announced new 2.2" LCD displays with a high contrast ratio of 2000:1, a viewing angle of 176 degrees and a 8ms response time.
The panel has a resolution of 240 x 320 (QVGA) and is designed for devices like cell phones, digital cameras and other mobile devices.
By fusing proprietary, high-resolution liquid-crystal-system technology with high-quality display technology cultivated through the development of AQUOS LCD TVs, Sharp has developed a new LCD for mobile equipment that boasts the industry's highest*1 contrast ratio, a wide viewing angle that is top class in the industry, and image quality nearly as high as that of LCD TVs. The new LCD allows users to see clearer, more colorful images than can be seen on conventional mobile equipment.
This autumn, Sharp is scheduled to make a sample shipment of the new LCDs for One-Seg-compatible mobile phones. Sharp will then use the new LCDs to expand its lineup of mobile phones and to further develop the application of these new LCDs in digital cameras.
