An alert issued by The Wall Street Journal states that Apple will be using new screen technology in the next generation iPhone.
The new technology is said to make the display thinner by using “in-cell technology” where the touch sensors do not separate from the lcd.
The new technology is said to make the quality of the images display even more pristine and help make the new iPhone at minimum a half millimeter thinner.
Wall Street Journal:
Apple Inc.’s AAPL +0.00% next iPhone, currently being manufactured by Asian component makers, will use a new technology that makes the smartphone’s screen thinner, people familiar with the matter said, as the U.S. technology giant strives to improve technological features amid intensifying competition from Samsung Electronics Co. 005930.SE +1.39% and other rivals.
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 improves the quality of displayed images, said DisplaySearch
