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.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
