iPhone 4G Brings Samsung Touchscreen Display, Borrows It From the iPad?

March 25, 2010, By Alex Ion

By now we’re quite sure that when released in the next few months, the iPhone 4G is going to be cheaper and will bring gesture-based technology. We even speculated that it’s going to feature a Samsung Super AMOLED touchscreen display.

Speaking of a display, we’re hearing that Samsung and Apple have signed a $240 million deal that involves 3 million 9.7-inch touchscreen displays for the iPad — which leads us thinking that the next-generation iPhone will feature one, too.

Of course, there’s nothing official from Samsung or Apple, but an unknown company exec working with the Korean manufacturer, unofficially announced that Apple will use their LCDs in the iPhone 4G. “As far as I know, Apple will use the LCD panels for its next iPhone models. We are receiving related orders from Apple,” the executive said.

So why should you take that with a pinch of salt? Apparently, Samsung’s biggest rival, LG Electronics have won an $800 million deal with Apple to supply some 10 million LCD panels for the iPad tablet.

You can rest assured we’ll keep you posted, but we’d like to know what you guys think about the iPhone 4G.

What specs and features does it need?
