We've seen the new screen technology in smaller forms, but this is the biggest IGZO display yet.
IGZO is a new tech that Sharp has been playing with for a few years and is finally ready to push out to larger forms. The acronym stands for indium gallium zinc oxide, which replaces the traditional silicon layer of a TV screen. This allows for a few different things, including smaller pictures, faster response times and better power efficiency.
There have been a few IGZO products launched thusfar, including today's Aquos Phone Zeta, but none quite this large. The 32 inch PN-K321, which comes out in February, is just 35mm thick and offers up an Ultra HD resolution.
Pricing is expected to be 450,000 yen or around $5,500 US.
