Apple iPhone 6 to use Sharp's p-Si LCD display for launch next year
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.
