Ahead of the new iPhone launch, the rumor mill is in full swing. Today, Reuters reports that LG has officially announced that it has started a mass production of news displays. These displays are rumored to make their way into the next-generation iPhone. In fact, this news follows similar comments from Sharp as MacRumors pointed out earlier this month. This news comes just three weeks ahead of Apple’s expected media event to introduce the new device.
The report also claims that the new iPhone displays will be measured at four inches diagonally and will have in-cell technology to embed touch sensors directly into the display, which would help decrease the thickness of the component. The Wall Street Journal also has a similar report discussing Apple’s plans for the panels.
WSJ’s report also goes on to say that LG, Sharp, and Japan Display are all producing displays with in-cell touch sensors for the next-generation iPhone. It is also reported that these suppliers will be able to meet their production goals despite the challenges of the new technology.
