Speculation is swirling about thedue during Apple's annual announcements, usually in September every year. The current rumors have three iPhones, one of which will be a bigger 6.1-inch model with an LCD display.
Now Patently Apple tosses its guess into the ring, speculating Sunday that if a new LCD iPhone comes to pass, it might use the same MLCD+ that LG debuted in its . Switching to LCD makes sense in light of , and the G7 is 6.1 inches, so the size makes sense as well.
That phone isn't available yet -- we reviewed a preproduction unit -- but it claims to hit up to 1,000, which would make it more suitable for streaming HDR video and viewing in bright light than dimmer screens.
The IPS MLCD+ sounds very much like the RGBW array structure that, but as an LCD it's probably more like the back displays used on a lot of cameras to boost brightness outdoors. The array consists of the typical three primaries used for colors, plus a white (or clear) filter on every fourth pixel to allow more light to shine through.
