Innolux Corporation has been selected as a supplier of TFT-LCD panels for use in Amazon smartphones, according to Taiwan-based supply chain sources.

Amazon's orders for the panels will be used in the company's upcoming smartphone, which is rumored to feature a 4.7-inch screen. The sources said the orders will give Innolux an even further expanded customer base in 2013, and may help the company make up for past losses it incurred over the past few years.
Amazon is looking to a second-quarter release date for the device, but it may not be able to release the smartphone on schedule, as production progress at its manufacturing partner, Foxconn International Holdings (FIH), has not been as smooth as expected, added the sources.
Innolux did not comment about the orders.
