Rumors are forms in May about the iPhone 5. Anything goes: design, screen size, 4G network, new technologies … but what seems to shake the more the fans relate to the design of the new iPhone 5 , including its thickness.
Indeed, a few days ago, it’s multitouch technology “in cell” that made headlines. This rumor, cited by Digitimeswebsite reveals that this technology would reduce the thickness of the device by integrating it into a layer of the screen.
If one believes the words of Ming Chi Kuo, an employee of KGI Securities, the technology would pass the iPhone 4S of 9.3 mm thickness below 8 mm, the coupling to other components longer internal purposes. Thus, the iPhone could lose 5 to 1.4 mm thick in order to compete with Android smartphones that have them in a certain finesse.
Analysts also provide a reduction in the thickness of the battery and the screen at around 0.5 mm each, and a metal shell that could save more than 0.5 mm. According to the employee of KGI, this technology would facilitate the production of the screensbecause it would take more than 3-5 days for manufacture against 12 to 16 days today.
