Sharp Corp. is now producing an "adequate" volume of screens for the Apple iPhone 5, according to the company. Regrettably, it is still unknown, how many of demanded smartphones can Apple ship in a week as there are reports about the company's inability to fulfill demand for the iPhone 5.

Sharp is manufacturing "adequate volumes" of displays for the new iPhone 5, a company executive told Reuters news-agency. Apple also buys screens from Japan Display and Korea's LG Display. Volumes that the each company makes are unknown, but it is widely believed that Sharp started to produce the new 4" retina-class screens later than its rivals.

"The iPhone 5"s low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) touch-panel display with IPS is exceptionally difficult to produce at high yields," said Yasuo Nakane, analyst with Deutsche Securities, reports the news-agency.

Earlier it was reported that Sharp, a key supplier of LCD displays to Apple, had planned to start supplying next iPhone screens by the end of August, but mass manufacturing has been delayed by production issues.

Apple’s iPhone 5 is made of glass and aluminum and sports entirely new design that removes glass from the back side of the device and features long 4" screen with 1136*640 resolution (326ppi, 800:1 contrast ratio, 500cd brightness). The sixth-gen Apple iPhone sports brand-new Apple A6 system-on-chip with two ARM Cortex-A15 cores with NEON SIMD accelerators, quad-core PowerVR SGX543MP graphics adapter, new image co-processor, new audio co-processor and numerous other features. The iPhone 5 supports ultrafast wireless standards including GSM/EDGE/UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA/CDMA EV-DO/4G/LTE thanks to a unique single-radio 4G/LTE solution that provides fast speeds while fitting into the new thin design. The new iPhone 5 also features dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi support with up to 150Mb/s transfer rates. Apple iPhone 5 features the new Lightning connector that is smaller, smarter and more durable than the decade-old 30-pin connector.

Apple iPhone 5 comes in either white and silver or black and slate, and is available in the U.S. for a suggested retail price of $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB model and $399 for the 64GB model.
