Apple Reportedly Planning to Use Sharp's Futuristic p-Si LCDs for iPhone 6
Once again we find ourselves discussing the iPhone 6 before we've even enjoyed our first look at the iPhone 5. But reports surfacing Monday suggest that Apple is already laying the foundation for its sixth generation iPhone, at least in terms of the device's LCD display.
Here's what we know - or think we know based on the latest reports: Apple is planning to work with Sharp to produce futuristic, next-generation low-temperature poly-silicon LCD displays. The benefit of the LCD displays will be a lighter-weight and thinner design for the iPhone.
This speculation comes out of the far east, specifically in a new report from Japanese newspaper Nikkan. According to sources speaking with the publication, Apple and Sharp have agreed to begin building the LCD displays next spring - spring of 2012 - likely to put the iPhone 6 on track for a summer 2012 debut.
In other words, it looks like we should expect an improved iPhone 6 screen more than anything else (read: Apple HDTVs) as a result of that patent acquisition. The new LCD screen, specifically a p-Si LCD screen, is described by Toshiba Mobile Display as featuring "low-temperature poly-silicon" technology, a next-generation display format that allows for thinner and lighter screens that consume less power than traditional LCD screens.

Douchebags on MMI. Go check out an iPhone 5 website if you really don't care about iPhone 6 speculation.
Thanks for reporting the news, though. I just want a superbright retina display, but looks like Apple has better plans for us.
