Rumor: Apple Working with Toshiba on a New “iShape” Display for the iPhone 5

iPhone 5 - Promo PictureApple may be using a new display technology in the iPhone 5. According to MacTimes, Apple is working along with Toshiba to create a new iShape display that would blow the screens of today out of the water.

Called iShape, the technology would be “based on adjoining and round pixels” and would “provide greater clarity and truer forms, especially in curves.” The display would have a 1280×720 pixel resolution, with the idea being that since the pixels are rounded and exceptionally close together, round shapes will look much crisper than on traditional screens. MacTimes also claims that Apple will expand the screen size on the phone from 3.5” to 4” or 4.3” in the next model.

This certainly isn’t the first iPhone 5 rumor, nor will it be the last before we actually see a new handset out of Cupertino.

What do you think? Is iShape real, or just another one of the many iPhone 5 rumors headed our way?
