Another day, another rumour regarding the iPhone 6. But unlike previous ones this one is coming from a well reputed news organization: Reuters. A report today from the news publisher has mentioned that mass production of the iPhone 6 is starting from as early as May – which is definitely going to surprise a few people!
Reuters, in a report today, had an interesting information regarding the next-gen smartphone from Apple – the iPhone 6. In it, they mention that Apple has given the go-ahead to its suppliers: Japan Display Inc, Sharp Corp and South Korea’s LG Display Co Ltd, to start mass producing the display for the iPhone 6 – which will begin as early as May.
Apple is expected to introduce two iPhones, a 4.7″ and another 5.5″. But the displays for the 4.7″ have been given the green light as the “iPhablet”; a 5.5″ iPhone has some problems regarding the in-cell technology. Due to this problem, 4.7″ iPhone 6 display will be mass-produced alone.
Apple is expected to introduce in-cell technology for the iPhone 6, ditching the film panels used for previous model. By transiting to in-cell technology, Apple can make the iPhone 6 even thinner than before; this is done by building the cells directly in the screen.
The mass production of the 5.5″ iPhone is expected to start several months later. Although no exact timeframe has been given for it.
Well at least now we know that Apple is planning to introduce a 4.7″ iPhone 6, and another bigger one is due later.
