On January 29, at CES 2024, Sharp and Quantum Dot display technology company Nanosys jointly demonstrated the 12.3-inch NanoLED Electroluminescent quantum dot (Quantum Dot Electroluminescent) jointly created by the two parties. QDEL) TV prototype.
Traditional quantum dot display technology is based on photoluminescence principle, which requires LCD backlight or OLED light source excitation. Self-luminous electroluminescent quantum dots have more advantages in energy efficiency and color.
According to CNET, Nanosys secretly showed off a prototype 6-inch NanoLED screen at CES 2023 last year, and Sharp’s TV is larger and closer to a commercial product. Digital Trends also said it saw a 30-inch prototype at this year’s CES that was not allowed to be photographed.
Igeekphone learned from the report that the main advantage of NanoLED TV is that its manufacturing process is similar to the existing LED TV, without the vacuum evaporation process of the mainstream OLED production line, which is more convenient.
The screen on display at CES 2024 still looks rough: with a resolution of just 1,920×720 and a PPI of just 167, there’s plenty of room for improvement. However, Sharp said in a white paper last year that NanoLED can already achieve 3,994 PPI on silicon wafers and is expected to reach 6,048 PPI, comparable to the microOLED route adopted by Apple’s Vision Pro headset.
CNET expects NanoLED displays to be in mass production for several more years. Sharp representatives have hinted that its initial target market will be smaller devices such as smartwatches.
