This one to explain, from the article itself...

[...] touch panels that use in-cell technology can be made thinner because the touch sensors are actually placed inside the color filters rather than on top of them [...]

Simples...

It's what we call them in the US. Other countries call them in-mobile touch panels¡

Well, at least this is an original rumor. I love a good rumor as much as anybody, but I was getting a little tired of "Next iPhone To Launch In October", then "Launch in June" then back to "Launch in October" as if it was a new thing. 

I didn't even know what in-cell touch panels were. If this is true, then the next iPhone will have upended nearly every aspect of its hardware. Display, body, touch panel...presumably new networking, processor, RAM, camera. Pretty much everything. lol.gif

I don't know what the future holds, but it seems I picked a good upgrade rhythm! 3G, 4, "iPhone 5". Even-numbered years FTW

Well, well, well...

That is something that the user of Samsung Galaxy phones (and Samsung Window Phones) are enjoying from years ago...

SuperAMOLED display, a registered Samsung brand is exactly that.

Now the New iPad can lose that silly extra millimeter. The Great Steveo will sleep easier now...

Now if only they can start producing quality hardware, with software optimised to run on it, with an incredible app selection, backed up by the world's best customer service.

 

Wouldn't that be something?

Sweet. In-cell touchscreens are thinner.  Thinner screens mean more space for bigger batteries.  Bigger batteries will give us acceptable battery life with LTE connectivity.  I can't wait.

Did anyone else notice the revamped forums?  I had been wondering what happened to the "comments" section on the last few posts...

 

Anyway, thinner is better.  WOOT!

The use of Liquidmetal for the back of the phone is rather interesting. Google liquidmetal for the wiki description. This material is an alloy of several metals, including zirconium, which is used for crowns of implants in the dental world. This stuff is strong beyond belief, and can be colored. Good move.

Doesn't make the fake colors any better.

Appleinsider, it's a shame that my browser isn't compatible with the 'rich text editor'.
Especially since it's the latest iOS safari on the latest iPad.

Why is the title of the browser "29"?  Will "Facebook" login options prevent me from participating signed in at work?  (Most companies block Facebook.)  Why on Earth does it default to sending me email about replies to comments on a website??

You say like the Retina Display that only Samsung is producing for Apple with enough quality control?

A millimetre would be probably ten to fifty times thicker than the amount of space this saves.  

 

Reading between the lines, it seems to me that the author has no real idea what this technology is beyond what they read in the press release.

Yeah, my impression is that it's not so much the thickness of the actual layer (which is virtually negligible), but rather the simplification of the assembly.  No more precisely propositioning and sticking together multiple layers to get the functionality, now it's just all screen.  Apple (and Tim Cook in particular) is genius at supply line, assembly, and inventory control and this will help with that.

Let's keep the holy wars to the OS?  The 4S's display is widely regarded as having the most accurate colors and highest pixel density, while the Super AMOLED Plus has the best contrast ratio and direct-sun readability.  Neither is clearly superior, at least on this generation of technology.  Super AMOLED Plus thankfully replaces PenTile with RGB, and thus improves resolution and color response, but still suffers from inaccurate (but bright!) colors.

What about the LG screens? Do you mean that they are also produced my Samsung?
