The technology is reported to incorporated the touch sensors directly into the LCD glass itself, thus eliminating the need for a separate touch-screen layer.
The move to a newer, slimmer, lighter touch-screen technology also means that Apple will also more effectively differentiate itself against one of its chief component suppliers, Samsung, which has seen a dramatic boost in the sales and profits from its own Galaxy line of smartphones.
One of the ways that manufacturers try to differentiate their products is by making them slimmer and Jonny Evans reports that the new screen technology in question could make the next iPhone slimmer than 8mm, which, in my opinion anyway, is damn, and I mean damn skinny indeed.
As great as Samsung's Galaxy III success has been, however, it's expected that next iPhone may be so good that it will utterly "put the Galaxy III to shame". If the next iPhone is indeed a Samsung killer, then no doubt too that the new slimmer touch-screen panel will be part of the reason.
In conclusion, like millions of others, I'm eagerly waiting to see just what the next iPhone will offer and now even more so after reading about the possibility of that slimmer, lighter new touch screen. As far as its legal battle with Samsung goes, according to Florian Mueller, Apple already seemingly has Samsung on the run, but with that slimmer, lighter touch-screen technology, well Apple may also give Samsung a run on their money from a technological point of view as well!
And that's my 2 cents 4 this cloudy Tuesday, July 17, 2012
