iPhone 5 rumors: next iPhone to sport thinner display

The iPhone 5 has been rumored to be built using a new screen in-cell technology and now the Wall Street Journal seems to confirm the theory.

In a tweet posted by the newspaper on its Twitter account, the iPhone 5 is reported to have a thinner screen built using a new technology, with speculation leading to in-cell panels.

This tech could help in making the iPhone 5 up to 15% thinner than the iPhone 4/4S.

The Journal also reports that Sharp, LG, and a new company called Japan Display will build the new screens.

This new technology simplifies the manufacturing process, making the screen thinner, and also improves the quality of the images.

The paper writes, “The technology integrates touch sensors into the LCD, making it unnecessary to have a separate touch-screen layer. The absence of the layer, usually about half a millimeter thick, not only makes the whole screen thinner, but the quality of displayed images would improve, said DisplaySearch analyst Hiroshi Hayase.”

Rumors of an in-cell panel for the next iPhone are not new.

An April report by KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo detailed the technology and suggested that it could help the iPhone 5 be at least 1.4mm slimmer than the iPhone 4S.
