It appears that the info concerning the iPhone 6 is more solid than what we have right now on the iPhone 5. Turns out that Sharp will be manufacturing the displays for the 2012 version of the iPhone, according to Japanese paper Nikkan. The work has already begun at the Kameyama Plant No. 1, used for LCD TV production mainly.

Sharp’s new display relies on “low-temperature poly-silicon” technology, so we can call the screen a “p-Si LCD”, with a TFT (thin film transistor) made of polyscristalline silicon. The advantages of this technology include a thinner LCD display and lower power consumption. Also, the p-Si display supports a higher aperture ratio, showing more vivid images.

It’s strange to see that we have more info on the iPhone 6 right now than about the iPhone 5…
