Sharp to start LCD production for the Apple iPhone 5S next month

phone. Those companies include Japan Display, which is a company made up of the display producing capabilities of Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba, and LG Display. In the meantime, Sharp's performance over the last few years can be described as "faltering" which has forced the once mighty Japanese electronics firm to seek cash infusions from companies like Foxconn and Samsung.
The Apple iPhone 5S is expected to keep the same 4 inch display as on the iPhone 5 but will add a fingerprint sensor, a faster A7 processor and have iOS 7 pre-installed. Rumored problems with the fingerprint sensor are said to be the main reason for a delay in the release of the phone. Also expected out later this year is a low-cost version of Apple's iconic smartphone to be produced for emerging markets like China and India. On Monday, parts supplier ETrade said that it had received word that such a device is planned for launch sometime this year.

Apple you owe us at least 4.5 minimum, and it should be bigger than that. I for one am not buying an iPhone 5 rehashed.

Hey, DJ. I tried the ATT Galaxy S4 today. It was OK. No lag or stutter. But I'm still gonna wait and see what the Note 3 brings. It just didn't feel like enough of an upgrade over my s3. (But the screen was gorgeous)

it's such a shame that Apple's iPhone 5s certainly won't have that 4.5 inches display. Maybe in iPhone 6 but definitely not iPhone 5s. I guess it's time to move on. Welcome to Android world where you can have whatever you want. :)
