OSAKA -- Sharp will add OLED televisions to its lineup in Japan using panels made by South Korea's LG Display, aiming to halt a drop in market share by covering a segment it had passed by.

The Osaka-headquartered unit of Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Hon Hai Precision Industry, or Foxconn, will offer 55- and 65-inch TVs compatible with 4K ultrahigh-definition broadcasts.
