Japan Display Unveils 5.5-inch QHD Display, Fuels iPhone 6 Speculation

20140327 bAt the moment Apple’s latest iPhone, the iPhone 5s does not even sport a Full HD display, but given the phone’s smaller screen, the images on the phone are still pretty sharp. However could Apple be bumping up the resolution in the iPhone 6? Well we can only hope that is true, but could a jump to a QHD display be too much, too soon?

Ideally speaking that would be great news and it was recently that Japan Display announced a new 5.5-inch QHD display panel that may or may not arrive on the iPhone 6. Since Japan Display is one of Apple’s display suppliers, this has led to speculation that the recently shown off technology could be one of the iPhone 6’s components.

The display is also expected to go into mass production soon which would definitely put it on track for the iPhone 6 if that were the case. Also the screen size seems to be in line with the rumors that have suggested that Apple will be launching two iPhones: a 4.7-inch model and a 5.5-inch model.

Apple also sources from companies like LG and Samsung for their displays as well, so it is unclear if Japan Display will be supplying displays for the 4.7-inch model, if at all. Of course it is entirely possible that these 5.5-inch QHD displays could be designed for other companies in mind since we’re pretty sure Apple isn’t their only customer, but what do you guys think? Would a QHD 5.5-inch iPhone 6 be too good to be true?
