iPhone 5 Supply Shortage because of In-Cell Touch Panel Issues?

The new iPhone will have not only a larger screen, but also a new display technology. The new In-Cell touch panels are thinner and lighter as they have one layer less. Digitimes reports today about rumors from the display supply chain that talk about low yield rates of in-cell touch panels.

The yield rates are so bad that makers Japan Display, LG Display and Sharp even got already a subsidy offer from Apple in the range of $10-$15.

If matters get worse Apple might have to use the old touchscreen technology for the new iPhone. I just hope there will not be two different iPhone 5 hardware models. One with In-Cell and one with full-lamination. This would cause a lot of confusion for iPhone customers.

About the Geek Mind

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.
