Anonymous, 13 Jul 2017Actually, that would be the Z9D series, not the X series.XE (2017) series performs much closer to the 2016 Z series than XD (2016). X940E outperforms the ZD9/Z9D in local dimming and uses the same panel, its not the X940D. Also ZE9/Z9E is coming out next month around IFA which will set a completely new benchmark.

AnonD-248589, 16 Jan 2017True blacks with no backlight is not hype. It is superior contrast.new advancments have made lcd reach pure blacks as well. And there a bunch of other flaws with OLED in that they don't last long and when their blue pixels fades away it gives you this yellowish hue.
AnonD-248589, 10 Jan 2017Paid for by Apple. I want all of my displays to be OLED, anything else is obsolete.OLED is not that good tbh its mostly just marketing hype. IPS lCD is still a really solid technology.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2017Sharp owned by Foxconn since March 2016.yeah It would have been much better for the japanese company to have merged with JDI. Aren't japanese people usually wary of merging with foreign countries?
Im honestly surprised they never merged with JDI.
AnonD-258858, 09 Jan 2017totally agreed; even Samsung's edge series is frustrating to use on daily basis.thats why sony always has some bezel too. Everyoen shits on them but there is no denying sony knows what they are doing. Not in the marketing department they dont.
AnonD-625786, 10 Jan 2017That's about $1 billion USD, right? Impressive, Sharp.Paid for by Apple. I want all of my displays to be OLED, anything else is obsolete.

Right now its pretty crap so they need to use bezel for a little longer.
Cyr4x, 09 Jan 2017Hopefully we'll see some TV's to compete with LG, what usually decreases prices.Low grade,,, No thanks I would buy Sharp TV!!!
Using a phone with No side Bezels is a night mare. I never used MI MIX but I can feel how difficult it is in basic operations
Woah, imagine if it were 100 billion euros.... most complex singleturn investment project in the history of computing xD.
Sharp should add a few hundred billion JPY more if they pretend to catch up with Samsung.
