Apple iPhone 6s Could Be Even Thinner, Thanks To New LED Backlighting Chips; Reports

Althgough iPhone 6s rumors are emerging and a new report has hit the Web suggesting that the new Apple smartphone could make use of new and much thinner generation of LED backlightinh chips. Might either bring a much slimmer new iPhone or one with more room for the Cupertino to work its miracle. Details regarding the thinner iPhone 6s news can be grabbed right after this jump.

Changes under the hood of the iPhone 6s gains, but only with reports and speculations combined. Historical data indeed suggests that this could well be the biggest incremental iPhone release yet with its Force Touch panel, and a possibly increased pixel count on the front-facing camera, though none of this can be confirmed right away. Apple finally promotes Jony Ive designer to a newly created Chief Designer officer role, which can make sense, that the next iPhone will be more desirable and especially Ive’s new roles will be to supervise design work on the company’s $5 billion falgship ‘Campus 2’, known as the “Spaceship.” Remind you that he is one of the most talented guru and accomplished designers of his generation, with an astonishing 5,000 design and utility patents to his name.

Apart from the oft-mentioned news, iPhone 6s design and specs shed some light on Apple’s aim to use thinner LED backlighting chips. According to the Digitimes, a Taiwanese published this report, about the new chips have the same width and length dimensions, but are a significant 0.2mm thinner than the current ones which found at 0.6mm thick. While this definitely increases space for more components in the iPhone and even gives Apple the chance to maybe slim down the device even more. Chips that are reportedly 10% less brighter than the existing ones, which either means the Mac-maker would need to use extra chips than usual.

Slimming down the new iPhone seems unlikely, unless Apple finds a way to shrink the camera module, which could be looking at bigger batteries for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, something that would weigh in much more than a slimmer profile for Apple fans. Of course all these assumptions are based upon Force Touch not being part of the final pacakge. If and if, Apple decides to go ahead with the Force Touch technology, it could bound to hog more space than the standard iPhone display panel and where the new and thinner LED  backlighting chips comes, help the iPhone maintain its already slim form factor.

New iPhone reportedly to use smaller LED backlighting chips? Then the  next-generation iPhones to become slimmer and lighter, will reportedly adopt 0.4t (dimensions of 3.0 x 0.85 x 0.4mm) LED chips for backlight units (BLUs), smaller than the 0.6t (3.0 x 0.85 x 0.6mm) adopted for the existing iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Production of the new 4.7-inch and new 5.5-inch iPhones will begin in June 2015. Initially shipped in the third quarter, according to TrendForce.
