9to5Mac reports that the iPhone 5 may sport a 4 inch display. The website claims that a employee from Foxconn spilled the beans on the next generation iPhone’s screen size. Furthermore, the source says that their factories are just about ready to fire up production for the upcoming smartphone.
Will the iPhone 5 sport the same design as the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S? According to the source, the next generation iPhone will be different in terms of design. However, it will not be a teardrop design that has been circulating on the net. Instead, it will sport a symmetrical design.
Is this report true? Will Apple put a 4 inch display on the iPhone 5? Unfortunately, there’s no way to confirm this.
One could argue that since Apple’s rivals have launched smartphones with larger displays such as the Galaxy Note and the HTC Titan, Apple is likely to do the same. However, Apple is known to be a trend-setter and not a manufacturer who conforms to what’s available. So, we’re not too sure if Apple will put a larger display on its next generation iPhone. Furthermore, a bigger display on an iPhone means redesigning apps for a bigger display, which might not be an attractive undertaking for developers.
Do you believe the iPhone will sport a 4 inch display, or do you think it will sport the same display as the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S? Share your thoughts through a comment.
