Sharp President Confirms iPhone With OLED Display

Sharp President Tai Jeng-wu and executive at Hon Hai (Foxconn) has reportedly confirmed that Apple is making an OLED display iPhone, reports Nikkei.

"The iPhone has been evolving and now it is switching from LTPS (low-temperature poly-silicon) to OLED panels," Tai told students at Tatung University, his alma mater, during a ceremony in which he was awarded an honorary doctorate degree.

"We don't know whether Apple's OLED iPhones will be a hit, but if Apple doesn't walk down this path and transform itself, there will be no innovation. It is a crisis but it is also an opportunity," Tai said.

Sharp current has limited OLED production capabilities but is looking to expand and likely capture orders for future iPhones.

"We are now building a new [OLED] facility in Japan. We can make [OLED panels] in the U.S. too," he said. "If our key customer demands us to manufacture in the U.S., is it possible for us not to do so?"

Nikkei previously reported that Apple was preparing three new iPhone models for next year with only the premium 5.5-inch handset getting a curved OLED display. The three models are all expected to feature glass backs. Click here for more details.

Apple needs to have retina screens in their iPhones now. It's getting ridiculous now where they're at and I'm disappointed.

You do realized since iPhone 4, they have had retina displays for the longest time. What kind of ass backward logic is this?
