Apple's next iPhone to have thinner screen

Apple Inc's next iPhone will use a new
technology that makes the smartphone's
screen thinner, the Wall Street Journal said,
citing people familiar with the matter.
This is currently being manufactured by Asian
component makers, Sharp Corp, Japan Display Inc
and South Korea's LG Display Co Ltd who are mass
producing the panels for the iPhone using so-called
in-cell technology, WSJ said citing sources.
The adoption of in-cell technology means Taiwan's
Wintek Corp and TPK Holding Co Ltd, which supplied
the touch-panel layer of the iPhone 4S screen, did
not get orders for the next iPhone, the paper said
citing people with knowledge of the matter.
The technology integrates touch sensors into the
LCD, making it unnecessary to have a separate
touch-screen layer.
The absence of the layer makes the screen thinner
and the quality of displayed images would improve,
said DisplaySearch analyst Hiroshi Hayase, the
Journal reported.
Apple could not immediately be reached for
comment outside regular U.S. business hours.
