iPhone 5 has not been released by Apple yet but discussion about iPhone 6 is already begin, at least in terms of the LCD display used in the device. Apple and Sharp are working mutually to make innovative, next-generation low-temperature poly-silicon (p-Si) LCD displays that permit for thinner and lighter screens which consume less power compared to the traditional LCD screens. According to the latest report by Japanese newspaper Nikkan, Sharp will start building the LCD displays for the sixth generation iPhone in spring of 2012. Already the Company is prepping tools at Kameyama Plant No. 1 at which the Japanese company creates LCD Televisions.
Advanced aperture ratios that allow for more bright pictures onscreen, superior durability, and less connecting pins are the advantages of p-Si LCD display. There are no words until now on the size or pixel density of the new screens however it seems that the pixel density and crystal alignment of p-Si LCD is better than newer technologies such as OLED resulting in broad viewing angle and enhanced readability. Current Apple fans and potential iPhone buyers are confused whether to purchase iPhone 5 or 6 when available since it may happen that latter include more facilities.
