iPhone 5 Display Order Indicates 4-Inch Screens [Rumor]

iphone_4s and 5

Prior to this article, there were many rumors circulating around the internet that suggested the next-gen iPhone would be coming with a bigger screen. Now apparently, the folks over at WallStreetJournal (via GeekyGadgets) have reported that the iPhone 5 will enter its production stage next month and as opposed to the 3.5-inch screen that is featured on current iPhones, the next will allegedly have a 4-inch one. The report indicates that Apple apparently ordered the supposed 4-inch displays from its suppliers in Asia in time for the device’s alleged production that should see the smartphone released sometime in either September or October this year, which is about 12 months after the launch of the iPhone 4S.

If the Cupertino technology giant does introduce a larger screen for its iPhone it would indicate a redesign as well and since Apple has been following a pattern of redesigning its phone every two years, could be in store for a redesign this time around as well? Getting a 4-inch display doesn’t necessarily mean that the phone will become larger as we have seen in some mockups recently; it could just mean a taller device with an elongated screen and the identical width. Of course with the device yet to be announced, all information like this should be taken in the same manner. As we have previously said and as we will keep saying, do take this news with a pinch of salt until something official comes our way.
