Just when we all thought that the new week will bring about a surge in news related to a host of other devices, it seems like the top position in the section, yet again, has been occupied by Apple. And there are no surprises here since the topic in question is the upcoming iPhone 6 from the company.
According to new reports related to the new device, Apple's suppliers are set to begin mass production of displays for the next iPhone as early as May. The device is currently expected to be launched this autumn with a 4.7-inch screen first, while a 5.5-inch version could also arrive but will be delayed, supply chain sources said.
Following a recent post coming out of Tokyo early Tuesday, Reuters quoted some unnamed supply chain sources saying that Apple's suppliers - Japan Display Inc, Sharp Corp and South Korea's LG Display Co Ltd - will start making 4.7-inch displays for the iPhone6 as early as May.
Apart from the fact that new screens for the device will enter production in May, the report also stated that in-cell touch panel technology will be incorporated into the screens, and that the new device will be developed with "thinner construction than with standard touch panel films - that was introduced with the iPhone 5."
However, as we mentioned before, this is not the first time this month when the new iPhone from Apple has been highlighted all over the Internet. Earlier this week, Japan's Nikkei newspaper carried a report syaing that Apple's new smartphones will eventually debut in September.
As of now, representatives for the three suppliers and for Apple have declined to comment on the matter. However, new reports related to the same are expected to arrive as the week progresses.
