Japanese reports say LCD panels will be produced in the coming months and released in September
One complaint that Apple has been hearing time and time again is that the screens that are used on the iPhones aren’t keeping up to the standards in the industry. Apple has been busy upgrading the power in these small devices, but the screens have remained largely unchanged, despite the fact that competing phones have screens that are much larger now.

If reports from Japan are to be believed, that is going to change at some point later in the year. There is a production facility in Japan called Japan Display’s Mobara plant, which is said to begin production on 4.7 and 5.5 inch LCD displays as early as April or May. The screens are said to be provided by LG and will be ready for release as a device in September.
That September release date is under speculation, though, since many experts think that if there are two sizes being worked on, there will only be one that is released this year. Official announcements have been sparse, but it is expected that something is going to be released, but it will remain to be seen if these are on the plate as well. Pay attention to the next couple of months and there will hopefully be more solid information that comes out.
