iPhone rumors used to be a day apart, but this time, it's getting hotter! With plenty of rumors already floating around the web, hinting from bigger screen to NFC, now, WSJ is reporting that the next iPhone will feature a new screen technology to keep it slim.
Currently, the iPhone 4S is made up of three layers: the LCD, capacitive sensors and a sheet of glass. WSJ reports that Apple will be using a new manufacturing process for the screen of the next iPhone suggesting that it will integrate the touch sensors into the LCD making it thinner, and lighter thus improving overall image quality.
The Journal also suggests that LCD makers Sharp and Japan Display are already mass producing the panels. If true, this might point to Apple really opting to a larger iPhone, and a thinner screen like this would shave off some weight. [WSJ via The Verge]
