Sharp has developed a 2.2-inch super-thin LCD for mobile devices such as cell phones and digital cameras. As these devices are rapidly becoming thinner and thinner to improve portability and enable even more stylish design, we might soon have cameras we can put in our wallet. The new Sharp LCD is based on proprietary fabrication techniques for thin LCDs, in particular, glass substrate and backlight technologies.

PRESS SUMMARY

Sharp develops 0.68 mm Super-Thin 2.2- inch LCD - digital camera and photography newsSharp Corporation has successfully developed a 2.2-inch super-thin LCD for mobile devices with a thickness of only 0.68 mm, the industry's thinnest*1.

Mobile devices such as mobile phones and digital cameras are rapidly becoming thinner as manufacturers strive to improve portability and offer consumers more stylish designs. As a result, thinner embedded components such as LCDs are also increasing in demand. In addition, the increase in demand for One-Seg (terrestrial digital broadcast) compatible handsets is leading to demands for greater visibility and higher image quality in displays intended for mobile devices.

In this light, Sharp has successfully developed a new 2.2-inch Mobile Advanced Super View LCD with a thickness of only 0.68 mm, the industry's thinnest*1, based on proprietary Sharp fabrication techniques for thin LCDs, in particular, glass substrate and backlight technologies. This new Mobile Advanced Super View LCD delivers superior image quality approaching that of an LCD TV thanks to a high contrast ratio of 2000:1, wide viewing angle of 176°, and fast response speed of 8 ms, which are among the highest levels in the industry*2. As the leading manufacturer of LCDs, Sharp will continue to develop new proprietary technologies for LCDs, ranging from large-size LCDs for TVs to small- and medium-size displays, and will contribute to the further evolution of mobile devices in the future.

Note also that this display will be exhibited at FPD International 2007 to be held at Pacifico Yokohama on October 24 to 26.
