  • Sharp Boss Dishes on New iPhone


    Reality is bumping rumors from the headlines Thursday as Sharp president Takashi Okuda dished on the 6th generation iPhone at a press briefing in Tokyo this morning.

    According to the revelation today, Sharp will begin shipping screens for the refreshed iPhone this month, suggesting that the forthcoming release may be approaching rapidly. "Shipments will start in August," Okuda was quoted saying by Reuters.

    Okuda wouldn't speak to any further details pertaining to the 6th generation iPhone. But based on what other sources have admitted, the Sharp panels in question will be 4 inches corner to corner (30 percent bigger than the current iPhone model).

    As of this writing, there has been no word as to the panel shipping estimates of Apple's other suppliers LG Display and Japan Display.

    Originally Posted by :
    The iPhone screens will also be thinner than their previous incarnations with the use of so-called in-cell panels. The new technology embeds touch sensors into the liquid crystal display, eliminating the touch-screen layer found in current iPhones.
    As MMi has been reporting in recent weeks, production of the new iPhone is thought to have already begun inside of Asia. Apple is purportedly looking to unveil the device on or around September 12th.

      Amen!!! That was really been getting on my freaking nerves. The new iPhone will either be called iPhone 6 or they'll drop the number moniker altogether and just called it iPhone, similar to the latest iPad.

      Also, I told myself that if Apple didn't finally make the screen bigger than I was gonna make a switch to a new Android phone. I'm very relieved to hear that they've finally made the screen bigger. Or they better have made it bigger anyway lol.

      Why does everyone care so much about what it's going to be called iPhone 5, iPhone 6, the new iPhone what does it matter?? as long as its a bit bigger with a bit of a new design everyone will buy it regardless of the name anyway!!

      I hope the new iPhone does blow my mind. The 4 and 4S were rather lack luster compared to some of the competition. I don't have to buy one thanfully as i'll get one from work. So even if im not blown away, at least its not my $$ being spent

      There is no way in hell it will be called iPhone 5. Apple wouldn't release an iPhone 5 that has ios 6 on it. You know they wouldn't do that.

      This really excites me because i just bought a Sharp AQUOS 52" LED HDTV and the picture quality is amazing. i think these new screens are going to be mind blowing if they are anything like the quality of the tv i just bought. sharp has really stepped up to the plate with their panels these days. woohoo!

      I am so looking for to the new iPhone like someone else posted up above that if apple didn't make the screen bigger they were going to switch. I to was also in that boat I am tired of having a phone with this tiny screen compared to some of the other phones out there.

      I'm glad that after quite a few versions, they finally listened.. but they thought bigger only meant taller. lol. now we have a taller screen, but still the same width so typing will still be the same. so are the same inconveniences with the slimmer screen.

      Funny, I did that last year. I bought the Samsung Skyrocket and returned it to get the 4S. I kinda regret it, but at the same time my iMac hated that phone.


      Oh and cyanogenmoding isn't as cool as jailbreaking.
