We have just received a tip that Sony will be one of the manufactures that will be making displays for the next generation of iPhone that will be called iPhone 5. If this news is true, then Sony will be benefitted from it in a big way as Sony has been suffering from losses lately. The display of the iPhone is overlaid by glass that incorporates the touch sensor.
Let us keep in mind that Sony is not going to be only one that will be making displays for the Apple iPhone 5. Other manufactures include LG, Sharp and Toshiba, but rumors are brewing that Sharp is having problems making displays for the current iPhone generation (iPhone 4S).
iPhone 5 is expected to be launched sometime in the month of September, 2012 and the manufactures will be told to start display manufacturing in May.
