A New report says that Apple is poised to begin production on new screens for its upcoming flagship phone. Apple iPhone 6 release this year just got a little louder thanks.
Apple will reportedly begin producing the 4.7-inch screen next month, while work on the 5.5-inch screen could be delayed. Production of the screens is linked to a fall release date for the next version of Apple’s flagship smartphone, sources claimed.
Sharp, LG Display and Japan Display are on the list of manufacturers who could be making the screens, sources said.
An increase in size from current the 4.87-inch screen on the iPhone 5S would likely quiet some of the concerns from iPhone fans and analysts alike that Apple has been missing out on consumers interested in more screen real estate.
The production delay for the 5.5-inch screen is reportedly due to complications related to problems with in-cell production technology, which may result in a shift to film-sensor technology rather than in-cell technology for the larger screen.
On Monday, a designer created a concept photo based on the alleged iPhone 6 design specs that leaked last week, giving us a possible early look at Apple’s next iPhone.
