New iPhone to Have Thinner, Better LCD Panel

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, Apple is priming their next iPhone with a thinner LCD display, but one that shaves off one of the typical three layers by combining two together.

The current iPhone 4S has three glass panels: a glass cover, the LCD panel, and the capacitive touchscreen sandwiched between. The New iPhone, which is expected to have a larger 4” display, may combine the LCD and touch functions into a single pane of glass.

This will provide a clearer and better image quality because there is less glass in between the LCD panel, which emits light, and the user. This is a bit like Super AMOLED+ screens we’ve seen in some Samsung phones.

Shaving off a sheet of glass also allows for the entire phone to either be thinner, or to have more space inside the device for components. It also saves on production costs, thanks to less glass and a simpler manufacturing process.

Finally, the technology to combine the LCD and touch panels, called in-cell technology – developed by Sharp and Japan Display Inc. – will likely make its way to other devices with touch displays, including competing smartphones, tablets, etc.
