Sony & Hitachi Begin Shipping 4-Inch Displays For iPhone 5?

A Japanese Mac blog, Macotakara (via Apple Insider), is claiming that Sony Mobile Display Corporation and Hitachi Displays have begun shipping 4-inch displays for a new iOS device. Though the blog doesn’t elaborate which device the new displays will be used for, but the obvious choice seems to be the redesigned iPhone 5 which is strongly rumored to sport a larger display and tapered design with aluminum casing. Aside from the iPhone 5, the iPad 3 is also reportedly poised to arrive next and similar to the 2012 iPhone, the iPad 3?s screen is rumored to include Hitachi and Sony Mobile liquid crystal displays.

Citing from the source:

According to Asian source, Hitachi Displays, Ltd. and Sony Mobile Display Corporationstarted to ship 4-inch LCD for new iOS device and LCD for iPad 3. These 2 companies will be merged their business with Toshiba Mobile Display Co., Ltd., as “Japan Display” in 2012 spring.

The report also claims that an unspecified Taiwanese company will soon be “providing LCD technology faces” to Apple for a “fundamentally changed” iPad 4 that will be manufactured by a new process.
