Apple Plans to Use Larger Screen for the New iPhone

Apple Plans to Use Larger Screen for the New iPhoneApple plans to use a larger screen for its next generation iPhone. The company has already begun ordering for its new displays from different suppliers in Japan and South Korea. The new screen will roughly measure 4 inches from corner to corner with a 30 percent increase in its viewing area.

Apple has used a 3.5 inch screen since they introduced the iPhone in 2007. Production of the new screens have already started at it three suppliers Sharp Corp., Korea’s LG Display Co. and Japan Display Inc. also a Japanese Government brokered deal combines the production of the three companies. The three suppliers will likely start getting orders for the new screen from Apple as early as June so production of the iPhone will hopefully start by August if Apple follows its precedent in moving orders for prototypes of its key components.

Apple move to equip its new iPhone with a larger screen shows its plans to compete with Samsung Electronics which recently released their top of the line Galaxy smart phone that boast of a 4.8 inch touch screen along with a faster processor. More consumers are using their smart phones for various tasks that they once do with their laptops such as surfing the net or watching movies. This prompted other smart phone producers to create new models having bigger and larger displays.
