The iPhone 4S pretty trim at 9.3mm – but Apple's going to extraordinary lengths to slimline the iPhone 5. The design team at Cupertino are using in-cell touch panels to slim down the device's screen, according to The Wall Street Journal's sources.
Conventional touch panels feature a glass layer, a capacitive sensor layer and an LCD layer – in cell touch panels incorporate the touch sensors into the LCD layer, making for a thinner phone.
Rumours of in-cell touch tech being incorporated into the iPhone 5 first surfaced earlier in the year, with a KGI Securities analyst concluding that Apple's next phone would be a mere 7.9mm thick. Between that and the Wall Street Journal's sources, it's looking increasingly likely that the iPhone 5 will feature this slimming tech.
