Will the iPhone 5S most likely have different displays?

With rumors of the iPhone 5S having IGZO displays, does this mean an increase in screen quality - meaning less problems with yellow tinted screens? As much as I love retina displays, it seems like every time I get a new iPhone I end up with a yellow screen (and no, it isn't meant to be that way as my wife's phone always has a cooler display).

Cooler screens doesn't necessarily mean better. You may prefer cooler, but that doesn't make it right.

And as soon as the 5S hits the streets you will see a ton of threads about displays being different shades of blue and yellow. It's inevitable. Some people like cooler, and some warmer. What would be nice would be a way to calibrate the display yourself. This way everyone would be happy.

Iirc sharp said at CES it would be "quite sometime" before the US market would see IGZO on a mobile device.

Now that was in January and as fast as technology progresses "quite sometime" may mean less the a year. I'm doubtful though.

Agreed, I don't think we'll see an IGZO device until next year's iPhone.

Maybe so, but when I compare my warmer retina display to my wife's, my friend's, and all of the ones at the store, it's clear that it isn't how the display should be. There just shouldn't be two separate tones to retina displays.

I know it's wishful thinking that wont happen, but deep down I am hoping this is true.

Agree. I like it.....However, anyone want to bet there will be many complaints/rants about it not being wider/bigger still and starting the "Apple is failing" comments again ?

You do know they're not actual photos right?

5s will have the same display as the 5. Maybe Apple will tweak the colour profile to give it a bit more 'pop'

The next iphone could be 6" and the same people will complain. I remember all the ones complaining about the 5 being too small and saying they were leaving Apple for Samsung. Yet they bought the iPhone 5 and continue posting here. Every year is the same story regardless of what Apple does. Android forums are not much different (TouchWiz sucks, HTC One does not have SD card, etc.). people always complain instead of enjoying their chosen phone.

Yes, I know they are renders. My point stands that the pic doesn't really show a proper comparison to see how much better a new screen would be in reality. And yes, I'm expecting the 5S to have the same screen as 5.
