The LCD screen is undoubtedly one of the largest factors that drains the battery life of technologies. Whether it’s a smartphone or a tablet, we have to be constantly aware of how much battery is left on the device. For example, I always question if it is a good idea to kill time by playing games on my phone for fear of battery drain and missing an important call.
Sharp has recently stated that they will develop the world’s first small and medium sized LCD panels, using a new oxide semiconductor. Sharp will develop these screens at the Kameyama Plant sometime this year.
