Apple iPhone 5 will use in-cell technology to be Thinner – Another day, Another news about the features of most awaited iPhone 5, Just some moments ago, the famous Weblog WSJ tweeted that Apple will use special display technology in the next gen iPhone which reduces the thickness of the smartphone and hence make it thinner.
The technology which will be used in the next generation iPhone is called the in-cell touch panels. By using this technology the thickness can be reduced upto 0.44 mm. Actually, in this technology the touch panel is immersed in the TFT LCD rather than the separate piece which will reduce the overall thickness of the next gen iPhone. The following image demonstrates the concept very well.
However, the giant display makers Sharp corp. and Japan Display Inc. are said to supply these in-cell technology panels for the mass production of the next iPhone.
