LG Display Ramps up Production, Hints at Imminent iPhone Launch

August 23, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Certain signs confirm an imminent iPhone launch well ahead an official announcement. One such sign has come from LG’s display making subsidiary, LG Display, which has clinched the majority of display panel orders from the Cupertino Company.

The fact that the company has ramped up the production of displays this month points to an imminent launch of the new iPhone.

Though Apple sources were not ready to confirm anything on the nature of the upcoming iPhone display, LG sources says that the screen has a unique in-cell technology which helps the manufacturer to embed touch sensors directly into the display. This avoids adding them separately and also brings down the thickness of the device considerably.

Meanwhile, analysts have pointed out that the LG’s mass production timing coincides with the expected iPhone launch next month.

Rumors have time and again confirmed that the new iPhone will have a larger display and thinner body. Apparently, the new iPhone will be the first device to use the in-cell technology on displays.

Though Apple has patented the technology, speculation is rife that the difficulty in producing the new type of sensors will cause unexpected defects, even causing a drop in the availability of new iPhone just after the launch. Well, we will have to wait and see.
