The rumors on the iPhones to have a larger screen is no stranger to everyone. But the iPhone 4S proved everyone wrong by retaining the same 3.7-inch standard iPhone screen size. But will the next iPhone, or we can assume it will be called the “New iPhone”, be having the highly anticipated 4.6-inch screen? It seems very likely with a report from a South Korean source stating that “Apple has decided on the bigger 4.6-inch retina display for its next iPhone and started placing orders to its suppliers”
This was said by the Maeil Business Newspaper quoting an unnamed industry source.
And the source also claims that the device will be available as early as the second quarter of 2012. Meaning we will be very likely to see the new iPhone during WWDC 2012 around June. But there are also sources which says the new iPhone wont be announced until October 2012 to keep the 1 year time length after the announcement of iPhone 4S.
These are all rumors, so please do not take any of these too seriously. But rumors are what makes it so interesting.
