“Yet another picture of the front panel destined for Apple’s next-generation iPhone has surfaced online via Chinese technology blog MyDrivers,” Killian Bell reports for Cult of Mac. “Like the others we’ve seen, this one reportedly sports a 4-inch display, along with in-cell touch technology that makes the panel thinner than its predecessors.”
“MyDrivers reports that the iPhone panel they have obtained from ‘supply chain sources’ features a larger, 4-inch display, in addition to new in-cell touch technology that integrates touch sensors directly into the LCD itself, negating the need for a dedicated digitizer and thus making the front panel considerably thinner than that on previous iPhones,” Bell reports. “The panel fits in nicely with all of the rumors we’ve been hearing about the new iPhone to date, but we do have one concern: The image MyDrivers have provided looks to be that of an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S panel.”
