Supplier to Apple Inc, the LG display Company, (034220) have gone into mass production of built-in touch sensor screens, said a report.

The innovative touch screen components being produced by LG are widely speculated to be involved in Apple's next iPhone version.

The next iPhone
The all new cell technology has sensors that are embedded directly into the display format rather than adding them on separately to the device. This permits the instrument to be extremely slim.

Hwang Joon Ho, a Seoul-based analyst at Daewoo Securities Co claims that the built-in touch sensor screen productions is planned “largely in line with the release schedule of the new iPhone.”

He stated that the new iPhone , will be one of the first to use this methodology . The devices promise to have a thinner body with a larger screen. Apple Company from California plans to flush the markets with the devices on the 12th September.

LG’s Display Chief Executive Officer Han Sang Beom stated “There were a lot of trials and errors as we tried a technology that hadn’t been used.” But the things were streamlined stated Apple spokesman Steve Park .

Touch-screen patent by Apple
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office claimed Apple acquired a patent related to incorporating touch capabilities into displays this month.

Hwang perceives that “Producing displays with built-in touch sensors is more difficult than using the current technology, which may result in a higher rate of defects and eat into LG Display’s profitability.”

A scarcity of the built-in touch sensor displays may put a limit on the availability of the technologically superior iPhone in September predicted Ben Reitzes, a New York-based analyst at Barclays Plc in his report of 13th August .
