New reports have come up claiming Apple will be bringing a bigger and sharper screen in the next gen iPhone. According to the WSJ sources, Apple has planning a 4-inch display screen and Apple will be giving orders to the suppliers by June.
In another report by Reuters, their sources claim that the new iPhone screen will measure 4 inches from corner to corner, which would be roughly 30 percent increase in viewing area than the current screen size, assuming Apple kept other dimensions proportional.
Apple Inc plans to use a larger screen on the next-generation iPhone and has begun to place orders for the new displays from suppliers in South Korea and Japan, people familiar with the situation said on Wednesday.
The main three suppliers Korea’s LG Display Co Ltd, Sharp Corp and Japan Display Inc will be the production orders by June and then they will be begun production in August for early releases.
Early production of the new screens has begun at three suppliers: Korea’s LG Display Co Ltd, Sharp Corp and Japan Display Inc, a Japanese government-brokered merger combining the screen production of three companies. However, Samsung has already launched Galaxy smartphone with a 4.8-inch touch-screen and also titled as the world’s largest cell phone maker this year.
Apple spokesperson has denied commenting on the matter. This reports also aliens with the earlier rumors of next gen iPhone to be coming in September like iPhone 4S.
