Corroborating a previous report from the beginning of this year, Macotakara reports that the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone from Apple will make use of a Full Active LCD and ‘Japan Pixel Eyes’ touch sensor from Japan Display.
The display will feature narrow bezels on all the four sides as well to ensure the 6.1-inch iPhone offers the same bezel-less look as the OLED iPhones it will be launching alongside.
The report also cites yield issues, which began this month, due to the high precision production of the LCDs which has led to far lower yields than anticipated. Due to this, Apple might push the release of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone to November which is what other reports have also claimed.
It will definitely be interesting to see if Apple ends up delaying the release of the 6.1-inch LCD. The move will help its bottom line, though there’s a possibility of many customers holding back on their purchase for the launch of the handset. Nonetheless, we have heard multiple times about production issues with various iPhone components over the years and almost always, Apple suppliers have managed to solve such issues on time. Perhaps, something similar will play out this year as well.
What do you think about Apple launching the 6.1-inch LCD in November instead of September alongside the iPhone X and iPhone X Plus?[Via Macotakara]
