The launch event / Apple conference will be held on September 12, the information came from many sources, some of them very reliable.
The Sharp CEO didn’t want to say the exact launch date. Apple is working in the provision of displays for the iPhone also with LG Display Co Ltd and Display Inc. Japan. It is said that the iPhone screen would be about 4 inches from the 3.5 inches which was kept on the iPhone 3Gs, 4 and 4S. This is a response to Android phones which reached, in the case of Galaxy S III, to 4.8 inch.
Reuters quotes an anonymous source who told them that the display would have 4 inches and it would be with 30% bigger then the current display on the iPhone 4S. The new iPhone would be even thinner than 4 and 4S with a technology called in-cell panels that allow touch integration and removing the layer overlapped on the display as the current iPhone generation.
