Despite not being set to launch until later on in the Summer of this year the iPhone 5S is still attracting a large amount of attention. We keep hearing various pieces of news emerge relating to this high profile new handset and the latest relates to a change in the screen technology that will be used on the model.
Many of the parts and components that will be used in the iPhone 5S are produced and developed in China and it is from this country that the latest reports have emerged which makes us believe that they could be genuine. They relate to the screen that will be incorporated on the new iPhone 5S and that this display will use a new type of technology. This is known as “touch on display” technology within the industry and Apple are looking to use this due to problems encountered by the screen fitted on the iPhone 5. This model has been plagued by supply problems and some of this is due to the touch panel interfering with the screen on the phone. This has led Apple to look to introduce newer, more reliable technology on their new handset.
Very little is known about the new “touch on” screen technology that will be used on the iPhone 5S. The screens are produced by Chimei Innolux and they are said to be even slimmer than the panels used on the iPhone 5. This means that Apple will be changing the design on their next generation phone to make it the slimmest iPhone ever released. In addition to this the company are also set to introduce a range of vibrant new colour option which should ensure that the 5S is the most aesthetically pleasing handset that they have ever released. We are also set to see an NFC chip featured on the new model to enable contactless payment methods and the phone is also rumoured to offer an enhanced camera feature.
Apple are keen to avoid the supply issues that have hampered the iPhone 5 and the fact that a new type of display panel is set to be used is evidence that they are working hard to avoid such problems. Expect to see the iPhone 5S arrive in the summer this year.
