Japan Display, a major supplier of iPhone displays, has announced a new 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1,440x 2,560 pixels.
The company will start shipping the 5.5-inch display in April.
Paul Semenza, senior vice president at NPD DisplaySearch believes that the display produced by Japan Display could be implemented in the iPhone 6.
“Typically, Apple wants ‘first dibs’ on the new part, so it’s a little surprising that JDI (Japan Display, Inc.) is announcing this now…We don’t expect to see the iPhone 6 until 2H 14,” he said.
“There is also a possibility of another spec — a 4.7″ 1,600×900 [display]. As always, Apple runs parallel development programs, to test out which is the best approach or just to try to confuse the rest of the world,” he explained.
Apple is expected to launch 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhone displays.
