Report: Innolux to deliver 4.7-inch on-cell display for the Apple iPhone 6

Report: Innolux to deliver 4.7-inch on-cell display for the Apple iPhone 6
Reports out of China claim that Apple has enlisted the trio of LG Display, Japan Display Corporation, and Innolux to produce a special type of display for the upcoming iPhone 6. This year, Apple is going to use a Touch-On display, based on on-cell technology, instead of in-cell tech. The difference here is that the new technology lets manufacturers position the touch-responsive layer directly into the outer glass, which could allow for faster touch response and a better overall picture. The details are rather slim as to what Apple and its display partners will be doing exactly, but it seems the iPhone 6's display will be more than just bigger.

Innolux is no stranger to making business with Apple, having previously delivered display panels for the iPad 2 and iPad 3. The Taiwanese supplier was chosen over Samsung and Sharp, due to the complicated relationship with the former, and the latter's inability to pass Apple's quality tests.

According to recent rumors, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, which we're awaiting in the fall, will have a resolution of 1136x640, while the alleged 5.5-inch iPhone phablet should have a resolution of 1740x960 pixels. The bigger model should be introduced early next year.

I think after a certain point it doesn't matter anymore when it comes to PPI. You can talk about colors and brightness at that point. And I'll admit that Android devices tend to have darker blacks (from AMOLED) but current iPhone screens are about as clear as you can get that don't look like a different hue when you view the screen.

Well if Amoled has the same brightness as iPhones screen it would defeat it

Ppi dosen't matter, well what you can do is order a custom made ips screen with 720p with 200ppi and tell me if you like it or not

i find it hard to speak with fandroids rationally galaxy s5 vs iphone 5s maximum brightness: 587 (execellent) vs 442 (good) - iphone 5s minimum brightness : 5 (execellent) vs 2 (execellent) - draw contrast : 1007 (good) vs unmeasurable (execellent) - galaxy s5 color temperature : 7144 (good) vs 8183 (poor) - iphone 5s gamma : 2.21 vs 2.25 - draw, closer to 2.2 is better. delta e: 3.36 (good) vs 5.08 (average) - iphone 5s delta e greyscale : 2.66 (good) vs 7.38 (average) - iphone 5s PPI : 477 vs 327 - galaxy s5 yet, iphone 5s the better display by number.

Hold on so if Amoled was caliberated perfectly it would be the iP5s the underdog

1280x720 was the standard for high end Android phones 2 years ago, how is that better than 1740x960?

Wait... The same resolution as 5s? That can't be right!

its not the pixel density that matters the most.....I being an android fan still have to admit that iPhone 5s has one of the best displays in market..... the quality and reproduction of colours is excellent and so is the brightness....

Well said...also an android fan, but I'd choose quality over res. Japan Display and LG Display gonna be great for this. 1080p is enough for phones. So the res for iPhone is enough

Really it decent matter So what you can do is when you paint your room with undercoat and then use the paint and don't bother using a gloss on top. Pathetic so a car that they paint they never use a gloss Amoled has a layer on top to make and feel the colors vibrant and punchy Another theory your saying not going to the gym and making yourself active and fit is wrong So that what your doing is modyfing yourself to the next extent So you prefer simple plain things in life You don't like to push the limits Typical you must be

"Push to the limits" also requires more $$$. So just because QHD is available dosent mean 1080p is now worse...its still good. In real world terms...the res on iPhone is enough for ppl and low priced compared to QHD. Having 720p on quality-made material is better than having 720p on shtty made material. Quality matters. I'd rather have a 720p screen that lasts for 3 years..rather than an higher res screen that lasts for a year just for eye candy. Sometimes simplicity bests complexity.

Wake up Apple!!! Everyone is going the QHD way and you still deliver non FHD display for your flagship! It's outrageous!!!

idk man ...if this article is true and the 4.7'' iphone 6 will have a resolution of 1136x640 that means not even a HD screen which is crazy and the most crazy part is that it will sell like warm bread which disgust me knowing that there are so many stupid people in the world.

Calm down dude damn! It's obviously a mis print. Both sizes have been rumored to have 1740 by 960. Look it up! It might not be 1080p, but you are splitting hairs at this point. I have a hard time seeing a difference between my 5s and my coworkers S5. They agree. They didn't even know it was 1080p. It kind of like android using quad core for the last couple of years, but it's taking the latest 2014 phones to beat apples dual core A7 chip.

All of you here blabbing about which screen is good and which is bad. I have one question for you all...... When you put an iPhone 5s and s5 screen down and you ask an average person which screen is better..... I think you all will agree the s5 will be the one people will choose. Simple because it's bigger, sharper and more vibrant. Phonearena is trying too much with technicalities to prove the s5 screen as inferior. Buyers don't care about numbers. If the screen looks good to the eyes they will buy it.
