Troubled electronic giant Sharp has a Full HD trick up its sleeve.

The company is the first to produce a Full HD 1080p resolution display for smartphones. It spans 5 inches and has a 443 pixel-per-inch density, made possible by new CG-Silicon technology. By comparison, Apple’s new iPhone 5 has a 326 pixel-per-inch density.
The Full HD resolution is currently found on top-of-the-range televisions and is 1.3 times denser than the current 4.3 inch 720p displays currently found in smartphones.
The displays are now entering ‘full scale’ production; however, Sharp began manufacturing them last month.
Which smartphones will be graced first with the Full HD display remains unknown, but The Verge purports the rumoured ‘HTC superphone’ could adopt it first.
Recently Sharp announced it is cutting 20 per cent of its global workforce and selling off major assets, including its share in Toshiba in the hope of returning to profitability.
Pioneering the Full HD smartphone display, coupled with their deal to provide iPhone 5 screens with Apple, should help the company see green once more.
