ETNews is reporting that Apple will make significant changes to the displays of its future devices including the iPhone.
Citing industry sources, the site claims that the iPhone will have its 4-inch display increased to at least 5-inches. This aligns somewhat with a recent WSJ report that said Apple is investigating screen sizes from 4.8-inches to 6-inches.
The site says Apple will release a new 9.7-inch iPad with a design similar to the iPad mini later this year, as expected. A Retina Display iPad mini is said to arrive next year, as some rumors have suggested. Finally, Apple is also said to be preparing a 12.9-inch iPad for release next year.
ETNews says Apple is planning to adopt a flexible OLED for its rumored iWatch and has hired OLED experts from LG Display. It’s also considering the potential of equipping the MacBook with an oxide circuit-equipped LCD panel for better power consumption.
Finally, the report also says that display production is being shifted to LG Display and Samsung Display as Japan Display looks to diversify.
