Apparently Apple has plans to get millions of iPhones manufactured over the next month or two. Sharp’s president recently leaked some information regarding the new iPhone. Now we’re looking at a different possible release date…
Today, Sharp president, Takashi Okuda revealed some behind the scenes details on Sharp’s plan to ship new iPhone displays this month.
Japan’s Sharp Corp. said it will start shipping screens destined for a new Apple iPhone that is widely expected to be released in October ahead of the pre-Christmas shopping season.
“Shipments will start in August,” Sharp’s new president, Takashi Okuda, said at a press briefing in Tokyo on Thursday after the company released its latest quarterly earnings.
He declined to give a more specific date for shipments beyond this month.
The report also states that the new iPhone’s displays will in fact use in-cell technology we’ve heard previous rumors about in the past. An odd detail is that Reuters doesn’t expect public shipments to take place until around October. That would put a few weeks gap between the rumored iPhone event date, and the actual product release.
