Apple to Use Sharp P-Si LCD for the iPhone 6?

Apple has reportedly selected Sharp’s poly-silicon LCD display for the 2012 iPhone 6, according to Japanese newspaper Nikkan.
The paper reports that Sharp will begin manufacturing of the displays in the spring of 2012 and has already begun preparing equipment at its Kameyama Plant No. 1.
The low-temperature poly-silicon technology allows for thinner and lighter screens that consume less power than traditional LCD screens, according to AppleInsider.
In a "p-Si LCD," the thin film transistor, or TFT, of the screen is made of polycristalline silicon. With this method, the display drivers can be mounted directly onto the glass substrate, shrinking the TFT section and allowing for a thinner LCD display. This technology has allowed companies to create "system on glass" devices, in which the optical sensors, signal processing circuits and other components are located directly on the glass substrate.
