Will the iPhone 5 Use In-Cell Technology for a Thinner Display?



Another day another iPhone 5 rumour, but as this is one of the most anticipated phone releases of the year it’s hardly surprising.


The latest rumour doing the rounds concerns the screen of the latest iPhone with the Wall Street Journal stating that “people familiar with the matter” have stated that the phone will have in-cell technology to produce a thinner display.


Apparently Apple brought in LG, Sharp and Japan Digital to create the new thinner displays which incorporate in-cell technology meaning fewer layers are required to make a touchscreen. Fewer layers means the display will be thinner than anything on current phones and will also be lighter.


There was no confirmation on whether the iPhone 5 will have a bigger screen as rumours have previously suggested, with the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X both having large displays it would seem Apple may finally move away from their 3.5-inch display that has been consistent throughout the range.


As usual there is no confirmation from Apple so for now this sits amongst the other rumours to keep us occupied whilst we await the launch of the latest edition of the iPhone.
