    Default 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.
    What's troubling to many current Apple fans and prospective iPhone buyers is that with all the talk of iPhone 5 being less than stellar in terms of upgrades, many would-be upgraders may delay purchasing the iPhone 5 in the fall of 2011 (its rumored release date) in favor of the iPhone 6, which may boast everything from 4G LTE connectivity to NFC technology.

    Ditto. Well, my bookmark at least. I already rarely come by anymore due to the poor quality of "news" that gets posted on the front page. I honestly don't understand why even a little bit of discretion/logic/reason isn't put into what's posted on the front page.

    the ip7 is holographic based screen apparently, so i may wait for that tech to get better, less x-talk, so maybe i am an ip4 8 or 9 guy.
    iDevice-less, for once. flirting with Andy Roid atm, looking to rekindle romance if the right handset comes along

    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.

    Agreed. I'm pretty willing to screw my contract to get the newest one, just to have it. It's my huge weakness in money-smarts and overall common sense.
