…or so say sources over at the Taipei Times, who state that Sony have been providing components for a next-generation mobile for Apple. Could that device be the iPhone 5?
Speaking to Stone Wu, senior analyst at IHS Displaybank, the publication is claiming that Sony has been working in partnership with Apple on in-cell touch panels, with an aim to ramp up production by May to prepare for an October launch of the sixth generation iPhone.
According to Wu, Sony will be joined by three other display manufacturers in order to meet the massive expected demand.
In-cell touch panel technology allows for thinner-frame smartphone devices, so if the rumour proves true expect to see a super-slim iPhone 5, despite whispers of a larger 4-inch screen.
