Apple is said to be producing a 5.4-inch iPhone 12 that will go on sale this year, according to reports. And now DigiTimes reports that Chinese company BOE will be tasked with producing the OLED screens that will be part of its construction.

According to the report, BOE will work with General Interface Solutions with the pair set to pick up the business for the new phones.

Apple is said to be launching as many as four new iPhones later this year, with one of those being the 5.4-inch model that will become the smallest OLED phone the company has sold.

Other reports suggest that the new phone will be one of the cheaper ones to go on sale this fall, likely missing some costly and high-end features such as a time-of-flight sensor. That sensor will instead be reserved for the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, following its arrival in the iPad Pro refresh that we saw yesterday.

If Apple does ship four new iPhones in September they are said to include this 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch models, and one 6.7-inch model. That would mean a lot of different iPhones would need to be built and available in inventory ahead of launch.

Something that might be an issue depending on how long the coronavirus situation persists. Apple has already suffered manufacturing slowdowns as a result of the virus.
