Sharp releases first smartphone with IGZO LCD tech

The first smartphone to be launched with Sharp's vaunted IGZO display technology will be one of Sharp's own models. The Sharp Aquos Phone Zeta (SH-02E) sports a 4.9-inch display that uses a ultra lower power consumption technology built using indium gallium zinc oxide technology. As the display is more translucent than a typical LCD, it requires less backlighting, lowering power consumption dramatically.

The 4.9-inch display in the Aquos Phone Zeta also supports 720p resolutions natively with its 1,280x720 resolution. If the display doesn't automatically qualify the handset as a flagship model, its Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. Rounding out the feature rich package is a 16-megapixel camera, NFC and LTE capability.

The Sharp Aquos Phone Zeta will become available in Japan in November or December, but will be limited to the Japanese market. It will ship with Android 4.0 'Ice Cream Sandwich' on board, with an Android 4.1 'Jelly Bean' update slated for early 2013. [via Engadget]
