    Default Toshiba To Provide New iPhone With 4" Retina Display?



    Earlier this year Toshiba and Apple struck a deal to build a $1.19 billion production facility to manufacture LCDs for Apple's iPhones. The facility was supposed to begin manufacturing LCD's in the second half of 2011.

    Fast forward to today. Toshiba confirmed in a press release a number of technologies it would be show casing at the Society for Information Display Conference running May 17 to 19. One of those technologies? A 4-inch 720p retina display.

    Displays for Mobile Phones and Portable Electronics
    The mobile section of the booth will feature high-resolution LTPS displays, up to 367ppi (pixels per inch) resolution density, in sizes ranging from 3.3-inch to 4.0-inch with resolution formats ranging from Wide VGA (480 x 864) to HD (720 x 1280). In addition, these displays will demonstrate advanced technologies such as high-contrast (up to 1,500:1), high-color (up to 92% NTSC), and wide viewing angle (up to H/V 176/176). The displays are just a few representative examples of TMD's broad line of thin and light displays for mobile smartphones and other portable electronic devices.
    The startup date for the plant, coupled with the ability to produce a 720p retina display in form factors ranging from 3.3" to 4" makes for a mighty coincidence. Especially with the number of rumors pointing at an edge to edge 4" display (pictured in a mockup above) being used in the next iPhone. Like mentioned yesterday, look to the supply chain if you want to know what a product may look like before its release.

    That being said, until Apple decides to unveil the next addition to the iPhone family we're all just drawing conclusions from crap we think we know. I wish someone would just leak photos of the final device already.

    1280x720 in a 4" display would be so sick

    It would indeed be sick.

    I can't imagine it being implemented soon, though. Apple just switched it up on developers with the iPhone 4 display. While I understand that the devs aren't first on their minds, I don't expect to see this until 2012.

    Perhaps you should replace the "with" and "4". Assuming you meant


    Toshiba To Provide New iPhone 4 With" Retina Display? instead of

    I actually would love the iphone 5's whole face to be the screen. So all the black you see is part of the screen. When watching a movie etc the home button would vanish, so the whole screen was watchable.

    I hope that if the Screen becomes bigger, the icons stay the same size and have just more space between each other like on the ipad Updating Themes for a higher resuolution is horrible!

    I would love a bigger screen. But the LTE shown in the mock up iPhone 5 is a bit of a stretch

    I believe the first sentence is the correct sentence. It's not a new iPhone 4 with a inch retina display.

    I concur. Move the home button from the bottom to the side or make it software, if that can be done.

    If this is true, most people will skip iPhone 4S and wait for iPhone 5.
