Korean multinational electronics company LG is reportedly developing a thinner display panels with technology in-cell for the next Apple Smartphone iPhone.
Reuters reports that LG company has ordered the mass production of a batch of 4-inch displays in preparation for the unveiling of Apple's new handset next month.
"We just began mass production and we don't expect any disruption in supplies," LG Display's chief executive Han Sang-beom told reporters.
The screens are said to feature an in-cell panel that eliminates the need for the touch-screen layer underneath, allowing for a slimmer form factor. A 4-inch display would bring the iPhone range in line with competitors such as the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Apple's next handset has also been tipped to feature a smaller connector dock, and metal alloy back casing, as well as 4G LTE, NFC technology and the iOS 6 operating system.
To be sure, all had to wait until September 12 where Apple will announce something on that date.
