Sharp unveils 27-inch IGZO 8K display sporting the same pixel density as the iPhone 7
Foxconn-owned Sharp has unveiled a new monster of an IPS display panel at CEATEC Japan 2016. The display, which comes in at 27-inches, boasts 8K resolution, and insane 7,680-by-4,320 pixel ratio with pixel density that rivals modern smartphones.Along with the insane pixel density, the new Sharp panel features a refresh rate of 120Hz, HDR support, and brightness reaching 1,000cd square m. Needless to say, the display's picture quality hasn't failed to impress on the showroom floor in Japan's Chiba prefecture. It's obvious, however, once you step to the side and view the display's massive Xbox One S-eque back panel, that the unit is still knee-deep in its prototyping stage.It's also important to note that the unit requires multiple cables in order to drive the panel's 120Hz refresh rate at 8K. DisplayPort 1.4, which was ratified by the VESA standards body earlier this year, supports 8K resolutions, but maxes out at 60Hz, and that's when using the new Display Stream Compression.
