iPhone 5 screen in production by LG now

LG is definitely producing a new super thin display for someone, it’s pretty obvious who that is

Apple often gets multiple companies to produce its parts, especially screens. So when LG announced it had just begun production of a super thin new screen, it was pretty clear who’d be getting it – the iPhone 5.

We’ve already heard rumours of the iPhone 5 sporting a new thinner 4in display. This uses, deep breath, a LTPS (Low Temperature Polycrystalline silicon) TFT (thin-film-transistor) LCD. That means the layer of glass currently used to separate the LCD and touch parts of the screen is gone. So the new iPhone 5 should be thinner as well as lighter, inspite of making the jump from a 3.5in to a 4in screen.

Expect the iPhone 5 to be on sale from September 21st.
