    Default Sharp Claims iPhone 5 Displays Are Being made in "Adequate Volumes"


    An executive with LCD maker Sharp recently indicated that his company isn't having any problems supplying displays to Apple for the iPhone 5 as rumors previously suggested. The unnamed Sharp official who wished to remain anonymous made the comments at a press briefing in Osaka, Japan according to Reuters. The comments suggest that earlier issues that the company was rumored to have experienced have since passed.

    The LCD maker was previously said to have fallen behind schedule in terms of producing new in-cell touch panel displays for Apple’s iPhone 5. The screens were reportedly being mass produce at the company’s Kameyama plant in central Japan. To be more specific, the new in-cell panels were said to have low production yields at the Sharp plant. The unnamed source who spoke with Reuters speculated that Apple could “sweeten financial incentives to secure an acceleration of production.” In addition to Sharp, the iPhone 5 displays are also being supplied to Apple by LG Display and the newly formed Japan Display Inc., a venture from the LCD operations of Sony and Hitachi.

    The new iPhone features a taller 4-inch screen that allows for another row of applications on the device’s home screen. The new in-cell touch technology allows the component to be thinner, aiding in the iPhone 5 being both 18% thinner and 20% lighter than its predecessor. With the production being on schedule, hopefully the shipping times remain consistent if not get better sooner rather than later.

    Sharp are one of the best LCD manufacturers out there. Better than Samsuck and LG.

    find a new supplier? lmfao. that's why they went with Samsung, high quality and high volume

    Sharp puts out enough displays, apple is claiming shortages to give the false impression that the iPhone 5 has a higher demand than it actually does. apple did NOT meet the sales expectations of the iPhone 5 so they have to do something.

    This tactic also drives up apple's stock prices according to the wall street journal.
