Sharp will begin sales an ultrathin IGZO 4K LED display from early next year.

The Japanese display maker said Wednesday that it will launch sales of a Full HD 3,840×2,160 resolution 32-inch LED-backlit display starting on February 15, 2013.

Including the chassis, the model PN-K321 display is 35mm thick and compatible with DisplayPort and HDMI connectors.

Probably its most salient feature is the use of IGZO technology — something Apple has had its eye on for the iPad because IGZO can yield very-high-resolution yet thin displays.

Sharp has a production target of 1,500 units a month. No pricing was given.

Sharp also plans to bring out denser small displays. Last month the company said it has begun production of a 5-inch 1,080×1,920 display.

That’s a pixel density of 443 pixels per inch. By comparison, Apple’s iPhone 5 has a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch.
