Apple's much-anticipated iPhone 5 will feature a thinner touchscreen, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal.

 
The paper cited insider knowledge of the upcoming smartphone, which it said will employ “in-cell” technology that allows for a thinner panel, which should make the overall device much thinner as well.
 
The technology works by integrating touch sensors into the LCD itself, eliminating the need for a separate touch-screen layer, which has been the norm for most devices to date. This will not only make the screen thinner – it will also improve the image quality.

Sharp and LG Display are reputed to be producing the ultra-thin panels, which means that Wintek and TPK Holding, which make panels for the iPhone 4S, have failed to secure the lucrative contracts for the new device.
 
The iPhone 5 is expected to release in Autumn of this year. Some online stores in China have already started taking pre-orders.
