Apple’s next-gen iPhone 5 will be 4.6-inch Retina Display
Apple’s next iPhone will spawn-up with a larger screen size, approximately 4.6 inches. One of the bigger drawbacks to the iPhone was its small screen size — while its rivals continue to put out larger screens. The iPhone 4, however, brought the new Retina-Display, making it a big choice over other competition on the market — but pretty vs. big isn’t always what consumers want.
South Korean media report says Apple’s 4.6 inch “retina” iPhone is said to be launched around the second quarter. Since 2007 the iPhone has topped the cell phone industry – and with Retina Display being introduced. The problem, however, was while the iPhone has a higher-def screen — the size was not that that pleasant.
Apple has already starting ordering from its supplies after making the decision to go 4.6-inch bigger. LG Display and Samsung Electronics have declined comment, as the two companies are a major supplier for Apple products.
Retina Display, which allows 326 pixels to be packed into a square inch, has also swept into Apple’s latest iPad 3 (HD) tablet released earlier this month. With the iPhone 5 (no confirmation on the iPhone’s name yet) debuting with a larger Retina Display screen — you can bet the Apple-Heads will be lining up for this year’s new iPhone (let alone the amount of rumors that are about to hit the web . . . )
