Next Generation iPhone Adopt In-Touch Panels - Digitimes
According to Digitimes, the next Apple iPhone would use Touch Panels manufactured by Sharp and Toshiba.
An improvement in yield rates of the in-cell touch panels at Sharp and TMD has persuaded Apple to choose to cooperate with Japan-based panel makers. Sharp will produce the in-cell panels at its 5.5G lines, while TMD will utilize its 6G lines for production, indicated the sources, adding that the two makers will begin to ramp up in-cell panel production in the second quarter of 2012. - Digitimes
We might see a different display in the new iPhone 5 which should keep up the brand standard with the Hi-Res Retina Display and crispier text, not to mention the stunning gaming experience.
According to CNET - In-cell multitouch technology integrates touch into the thin-film transistor (TFT) LCD manufacturing process, obviating the need for additional sensors and glass. This reduces the weight of the device, among other benefits.
To wrap up the topic, Apple is testing new display for the upcoming iPhone 5 which could likely release after the WWDC event, somewhere in June just like the release of its predecessor iPhone 4S.
