Rumors of iPhone 5 delay after key screen supplier hits manufacturing difficultiesby

Sharp, one of the key suppliers of the screen for Apple's forthcoming iPhone 5, is rumored to have hit "manufacturing difficulties" which may lead to a delay in the new flagship iPhone becoming available

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- According to leaked industry reports, Sharp has hit "manufacturing difficulties" for the new 4-inch display used in Apple's forthcoming iPhone 5.

Sharp, which is one of three key manufacturers of the device screen, had intended to begin large scale production of the new display panels in August, but according to sources has not been able to stick to the planned timescale.

This may leave Apple with embarrassing delays as it was expected to launch the iPhone 5 at a media event on September 12, and start sales of the new iPhone within a week or so thereafter.

Sharp's manufacturing problems may be imposing a supply bottleneck, impacting early availability of the iPhone 5.

The new iPhone screens will be 30% larger than previous iPhone displays and also thinner than previous versions with the use of so-called in-cell panels.
