Apple’s new iPhone 5 will have a sharper and bigger 4.6-inch retina display and is set to be launched around the 2nd quarter, Reuter says.
As a result, we don’t intend to be hit twice by the same driver in the iPhone 5 rumours and we’ll hopefully get to the bottom of these rumours before the iPhone 5 announcement strikes us with different news. The first iPhone 5 rumour decided to start with the iPhone 5 shape and more specifically, screen size. Before we go on with the Reuters report that claimed to know the size of the iPhone 5’s screen, let’s first give you a hint of what has been going on with the previous iPhones’ screen sizes and iUsers opinions and wishes.
But exciting as this rumor might all be, we seriously doubt its credibility. Because switching from a 3.5″ to a 4.6″ display is as drastic a change as you can imagine and such drastic changes risk alienating some customers. And when you have a user base as large and loyal as the one Apple has, that’s the last thing you would want to do.
So while we’d love to see an iPhone with a larger screen and as soon as possible, we don’t think any of this is happening. And 4.6″ might be stretching it anyway, so we are not really sure you should feel bad about it.
