iPhone 5, Apple’s future terminal will be launched next year and will have a screen larger than 3.5 inches. This is the latest rumor circulating on IT blogs regarding Apple’s new smartphone.
iPhone 5 will have a 4 inch screen, according to Japanese blog Macotakara. After recent launch of iPhone 4S, the blogs and tech sites started to write about the future of the most valuable mobile phone company in the world.
Citing unnamed sources, Macotakara blog claims that Hitachi and Sony have started shipping the 4-inch LCD screens to Apple. The two Japanese companies will also provide screens for the next Internet Tablet, iPad 3, which will have a new design. If this rumor proves true, it means that Apple not only decided on the design of future products, but that will soon start their production.
Rumors have circulated throughout the year about the display of the next Apple smartphone, iPhone 5. People from “This Is My Next” wrote that Apple will equip the new phone with a 3.7-inch screen, CNET.fr wrote that it would be qHD (960×540 pixels) and a 4.2 or 4.3 inch; iLounge recently wrote that it will be a 4 inch screen.
Shortly after the death of Steve Jobs, there were reports in the press that, before he died, the co-founder of Apple was working on iPhone 5. Jobs did not engage too much in the development of iPhone 4S because he knew that he no longer had much time and preferred to devote his whole time to the new smartphone. iPhone 5 could be presented at the Appl annual conference to be held next summer.
