Sharp Will Ship iPhone 5 Displays This Month, Confirms Sharp’s President

Sharp will begin shipping iPhone 5 Displays to Apple this month. Sharp’s new president Takashi Okuda today confirmed to Reuters that they will begin shipping diplays to Apple for their next generation iPhone 5

Best way to lighten the blow from a massive $1.2 billion operating loss is to uncover new deals with Apple, world’s most valuable company. This is what Sharp’s president did. It is first time that a major Apple supplier has talked about an unreleased product. Still Sharp’s president didn’t leak any specific details.

Shipments will start in August,” Sharp’s new president, Takashi Okuda, said at a press briefing in Tokyo on Thursday after the company released its latest quarterly earnings.

LG Display and Japan Display are also rumoured to be supplying iPhone 5 display panels, which are expected to be 4-inches diagonally, 30% bigger than the current iPhone display.

Japan’s Sharp Corp. said it will start shipping screens destined for a new Apple iPhone that is widely expected to be released in October ahead of the pre-Christmas shopping season.

Apple is expected to unveil iPhone 5 during a media event on September 12th, where a rumored iPad Mini and a new iPod Nano will also be unveiled.
