Apple iPhone 6 to use Sharp's p-Si LCD display for launch next year
It seems strange to be thinking about what parts might go into the Apple iPhone 6 when we don't even know when the iPhone 5 is coming out, nor do we know what the next-generation of Apple's touchscreen phone will look like. So far, it does appear that the Apple iPhone 5 will have a larger screen that goes out from edge to edge as we have reported. With a 3.7 inch to 4 inch screen, Apple is expected to keep the same resolution which will lower the ppi from the current 326  to about 315 which would keep it over the 300 mark that labels a Retina Display.

For the Apple iPhone 6, the Cuperino based firm is said to have chosen Sharp's next-generation, low temperature poly-silicon LCD display. Based on a report by Japanese newspaper Nikkan, Sharp will start manufacturing the displays in the Spring of next year. The company is already prepping equipment at Kameyama Plant No. 1 where the Japanese company makes LCD Televisions.

The low-temperature poly-silicon allows the LCD screen to be made thinner and lighter while conserving battery power when compared to today's more commonly used technologies. This method allows systems like optical sensors and signal processing circuits to be put directly on the glass. As far as the advantage for users, the screen allows for a more vivid image with more durability than today's screen.
