Sharp's Dumb Incredible 4K Smartphone Display Will Melt Your Face

The new Galaxy S6 may have the best display yet with the most most pixels. But we need more, and Sharp is going to give it to us with an absolutely bonkers 5.5-inch LCD 4K display — that’s 806ppi for anyone keeping count.


Sharp's Super Slim 4K TV Is Like Whoa Skinny

Sharp just unveiled a salvo of 4K TVs at CES, and even one that approaches near 8K resolution. One of the neat sets that enjoyed a brief sidebar during Sharp’s press conference was a TV the company is calling a “Super Slim” set because the panel is less than half-an-inch thick (not including the set mount).


Sharp's 80-Inch Beyond 4K Ultra HD TV Is Overstuffed With Pixels

What does “high definition” even mean anymore? There comes a time when words like “ultra” and crazy high pixel density just start to lose any kind of descriptive power. Sharp is making my linguistic conundrum even worse with an absolutely pixel-crammed set, called the Beyond 4K Ultra HD TV.


4K TV Throwdown, Part One: How The Sharp UD27 Stacks Up

4K is still in its infancy. Even if you’ve got the $US7,000 burning a hole in your pocket for a top-tier 4K set, I’d recommend a gorgeous 1080p OLED panel instead. But if you simply must have a 4K television, you don’t necessarily need the very best.


Sharp Crammed Over 400,000 Pixels On This Insane 4-Inch Display

The digital camera megapixels arms race might be over, but now smartphone display makers have taken up the cause, trying to cram as many pixels as possible into their screens. And Sharp has now claimed superpower status with a 4.1-inch display boasting a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, or 736ppi. For comparison, the iPhone 6 plus has a ppi of just 401.


Your Lettuce Could Come From An Old Semiconductor Factory

In a factory that once made floppy disks, herbs are growing. Inside an old semiconductor factory, there’s lettuce taking root. Oddly enough, electronics factories make great farms. And Toshiba, Sony and Panasonic are swapping industrial infrastructure for a business that’s as old as civilisation itself.


Sharp Aquos Crystal Hands-On: No Bezel, All Beauty

Japan builds phones differently to the Western world. We typically want better performance, more dazzling displays and faster processors. Japan just makes the thing look awesome. And not many have done it better than Sharp.


Sharp's New Phones Have So Little Bezel It's Ridiculous

Never heard of a Sharp smartphone? It’s not surprising since the company, known best for its televisions, has never brought a handset to the West. But today Sharp announced two new virtually bezel-less smartphones under the “Aquos Crystal” banner and one will be making its way across the Pacific.


Sharp's Free-Form Display Make Bezels Super-Thin, Screens Any Shape

Rectangular screens are so square. That’s presumably why Sharp has announced a new technology called Free-Form Display that could allow screens to come in any space, and reduce bezel size to almost zero.


Sharp 8K Glasses-Free 3D Eyes-On: Future Is Hard

Sharp has been showing off an 85-inch 8K TV for years, and now the company is taking absurdly high-resolution to an ambitious new level with a prototype of an 85-inch 8K TV with Dolby glasses free 3D. That’s a lot of unproven tech in one concept.
