Yeah, we are on iPhone 6 now.

While Apple has yet to officially announce the iPhone 5, rumors of the iPhone 6 are already making the rounds.

According to AppleInsider, Sharp Electronics have been selected to produce LCDs for Apple’s next-next iPhone. The information comes via Japanese newspaper Nikkan, who said that Sharp will be making p-Si LCD displays for the iPhone, and not OLED as previously (hoped) rumored.

p-Si LCDs are supposedly lighter, have higher aperture ratios, better durability and few connecting pins. The report states that Sharp’s Kameyama Plant No. 1 will be making the displays.

There is no word on the size or pixel density yet, but you know...iPhone 5 is yet to release.
