iPhone 6 to feature super-slim Sharp display?

Getting a little tired of all those iPhone 5 rumours that are bouncing around at the moment? We don't blame you to be honest.

So let's leave aside the Chinese whispers about Apple's next smartphone and spend some timing talking about... the one after that. Yes, that's right – the iPhone 6.

Now of course we don't know that's the name Apple is actually going to go for. Sooner or later, Apple's going to have to stop counting out version numbers and change things up a bit. But either way, the iPhone After The Next One is the subject of the latest musings on Apple Insider, and more specifically the all-important display.

The Apple blog quotes Japanese newspaper Nikkan as saying Apple has selected Sharp to produce the screens for 2012's iPhone. The panels in question will be low-temperature poly-silicon LCDs (or p-Si LCDs), which will allow for thinner and lighter screens that consume less power than current panels.

The TFT of the p-Si LCD is constructed from polycristalline silicon, which allows the display drivers to be mounted directly onto the glass substrate.

Sharp is already preparing equipment at its Kameyama Plant No. 1, Nikkan claims, and production of the panels will begin in earnest in around a year's time.
