Sharp’s new monitor promises to be something special, offering up 4K resolution powered by ultra-thin IGZO technology to make for a ridiculously high-res but sleek display. It’s going to be gorgeous. But it comes at a price.
The monitor promises a 32-inch screen packing a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels. To save you some maths, that works out to be 443 pixels per inch — for what that’s worth — which should make using it an absolute pleasure. For some perspective, the retina display MacBook Pro offers up a screen with 220 pixels per inch, and that looks superb — so this thing is going to make you weep with graphical joy.
What’s more, that IGZO technology allows the display to be made just 35mm thick, all-in. So much win in such a small frame. The display is scheduled to go on sale sometime early next year and, if initial Japanese pricing is anything to go by, it will cost somewhere in the region of $US5500. Still one for the well-paid designers among us then. [Sharp via Engadget]
