Apple looking to make the thinnest smartphone, ever
There is always hype around the release of almost any Apple product, most notably the iPhone and the iPad. Last year Apple fans were drooling over the release of a massive upgrade of the iPhone. They were expecting the iPhone 5 to be released but to their disappointment, the iPhone 4s was Apple’s product of choice. Nevertheless, it was well received. There were not much hardware changes, except processor and camera but the software received major upgrades (not to the user interface though). Siri was the hit.

This year Apple fans are hoping the company will deliver a zinger to the smartphone world again with even bigger upgrades, both to the software and to the hardware. Not only does Apple wants to make the smartest smartphone again but it wants to make the thinnest smartphone ever. According to Apple is seeking to make a phone thinner than 8 millimeters.

Apple is apparently messing around a new display technology that would place touch sensors inside color filters, in a way that would not sacrifice the touch screen’s responsiveness. Apple is reportedly trying to make a thinner battery as well. If this new screen technology and battery are implemented in the new iPhone, expected to be released later this year, it could make it noticeably thinner. According to AppleInsider, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the reports are true. He thinks a thinner battery and the use of metal for the iPhone’s case instead of glass could make the next iPhone just 7.9 millimeters thick, down from 9.3.

Take these reports with a grain of salt but Apple has done it before and they can do it again. If it doesn’t do it again, it would have a tough time explaining to their fans base because they will be pissed.
