Sharp: Next-gen iPhone displays to ship this month

During a press briefing following the release of its latest quarterly earnings report, Sharp claimed that it is slated to build display panels for the next-generation iPhone. “Shipments will start in August,” said Sharp’s new president Takashi Okuda. Okuda declined to give a more specific date for shipments; however, recent reports have suggested Apple will hold a media event on September 12 at which it will announce the next-generation iPhone, with a launch to follow on September 21. According to the report, both LG Display and Japan Display are also going to supply display panels for the handset.
