The Chinese tech blog that just confirmed the Google Nexus 10
tablet rumor is on a roll today. It leaked a picture of the eventual iPhone 5 front panel, and reiterated that its supply chain sources have confirmed Apple will use in-cell touch layer technology
It integrates the touch sensors directly into the LCD package, thinning it in the process
, and allowing for a slimmer device. Given that those sources confirm once again what we've heard numerous times - that the iPhone 5 screen will be with 30% larger area than the 3.5-incher we have now, a thinner display part would still allow for a very compact device.
As for the operating system, it is expected to come with the retail version of iOS 6
, of course, with its souped-up Siri voice assistant.
