Apple’s next iPhone is going to be released later this year. Many reports and rumors are suggesting that unlike iPhone 4S this new iPhone will carry a different design from it’s predecessor. Now people familiar with the matter and those who have sources with Apple’s Asian suppliers have told the WSJ that Apple’s next iPhone will carry a larger screen. This new screen will measure at least 4-inches. The report by WSJ says that Apple is working with several screen makers including LG Display, Sharp, and Japan Display for this new display.
The new screens measure at least 4 inches diagonally, the people said, compared with 3.5 inches on Apple’s latest model, the iPhone 4S. Production is set to begin next month, the people said. Analysts have predicted that the next iPhone will come out in the fall.
In a separate report Reuters claims that not only Apple is going to use a larger screen in it’s upcoming iPhone but has already placed orders for these larger displays from it’s suppliers in Asia. Reuters also confirms that Apple is going to redesign this newer version of iPhone and will add a ‘wow’ factor to it. [WSJ/Reuters]
