The iPhone 5S rumours are flowing thick and fast. Just yesterday, Jimmy Martinez was saying that the inevitable iPhone 5S might come in two sizes and five colours.
Today we’re relaying the suggestion that the iPhone 5S might adopt something called ‘touch-on’ display technology – partly in response to problems with the iPhone 5.
Currently, the iPhone 5 uses in-cell screen technology, which combines the display and touch sensor into a single beast.
That’s all well and good when it comes to thinness, but there’s seemingly an issue with iPhone 5 touchscreen sensitivity, particularly when rapidly swiping back and forth diagonally.
Chimei Innolux’s “touch-on” display technology reportedly boasts thinness, toughness, and enhanced touch sensitivity. Can’t argue with that.
The iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 broke from tradition and launched in September/October, but the general consensus is that the iPhone 5S will debut in summer. That'd at least allow a bit of breathing space between the iPad 5 (February/March) and iPad mini 2 (October/November).
