Sharp is showcasing its IGZO display technology believed to be headed to future iPhones at CES 2013, reports AppleInsider.

Sharp is the first to successfully mass produce IGZO, an innovative compound that replaces the industry standard amorphous silicon material used for the active layer in thin-film transistors (TFTs).

IGZO Advantages:
• Super high-resolution and clarity: IGZO's transistors are much smaller than traditional LCDs and have significantly higher electron mobility. Therefore, more data can be shown in a single display, creating a stunningly detailed image -- up to four times that of conventional full-HD or 1080p LCDs.
• Ultra-low power consumption: IGZO can maintain the onscreen data for a certain period of time without refreshing the data, even when the current is off. This helps cut back the power consumption to achieve longer battery life for displays.
• High performance touch response: Compared to conventional LCDs, IGZO displays have drastically minimized the noise caused during touch input. This allows for quick, easy, more natural-feeling writing and smooth lines.

Apple is said to be in discussions with Sharp over IGZO panel production capacity estimates for 2013 and is also inquiring about whether AU Optronics' (AUO) L5C line could be used to produce the technology.

Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets believes Apple is a "prime candidate" to adopt IGZO. "Even after turning off the power of a device, IGZO allows the image to continue to be displayed on the screen," White explained.
