Display for the next-generation iPhone, dubbed as iPhone 6, could enter mass production as soon as May. Japan Display, LG and Sharp are said to be working on these iPhone 6 displays, reports reuter. Previous report claimed iPhone 6 to be available in two different screen sizes: 4.7-inches and 5.5-inches. According to Reuter’s latest report, however, the larger 5.5-inches screen model could see several months delay due to manufacturing difficulties.
Just like iPhone 5S, 5C and 5, both variants of the iPhone 6 are said to use in-cell touch-panel technology allowing thinner construction as compared to the standard touchpanel films, as per Reuter’s sources. But due to the manufacturing difficulties with the in-cell touch-panels for 5.5-inches displays, Apple has decided to begin mass production of 4.7-inch displays alone, reports Reuter.
Apple is expected to announce iPhone 6 later this year and it’s expected to come preloaded with iOS 8 – New version of Apple’s iconic mobile operating system. iOS is rumored to focus on Maps improvements including public transit directions and better 3D support, Health and fitness, better iCloud tools for developers, changes to Messages and Game Center.
