Today, according to Reuters, Japan Display Inc. has confirmed this information, mentioning that the plant will require an investment by Apple of 1.4 billion dollars and will be entirely dedicated to providing screens for Cupertino.

Japan Display is a technology partnership that began operations in 2012 and is composed of Sony Corp, Toshiba Corp and Hitachi Ltd , with the intention of providing solutions in LCD displays focusing efforts and technologies to offer better components and thus avoid competition between them.

They are the ones who supply most of the screens for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and as we know, these have been classified as some of the best for smartphones, which is why Apple does not want to waste time and has offered to invest 1.4 billion dollars in a plant that will be located in Ishikawa, Japan, making Japan Display the main supplier of screens for Apple .

This plant will increase production capacity by 20% and will start operations in 2016, thus establishing for the first time a plant entirely dedicated to the manufacture of iPhone screens at the outset, and will most likely be expanded to other devices in the future.
