Last fall Apple changed it's screen size on its iPhone when it moved to a 4-inch 1136×640 display. Prior to that, the company had gone with a 3.5-inch display for the handset’s for 5 generations, calling the size “ideal” for most.“In a note obtained by AppleInsider, Kuo points out that Apple will extend the iPhone 5′s in-cell touchscreen technology to next year’s handset lineup, bumping display size to 4.5 inches, or 5 inches. The analyst notes Apple is less likely to use anything larger than 5 inches due to the company’s “unwavering principle of one hand use.”
In these few days we are all waiting for Apple to introduce its new generation iPhone 5S/5C at its media event which will held on September 10.. Today we've got a new analyst from Ming-Chi Kuo which says that Apple is working on a new iPhone with a 4.5 to 5-inch display and going to launch it next year...
But what that switch to 4-inches tells us, and what the upcoming iPhone 5C model tells us, is that Apple is becoming more open to the idea of expanding its smartphone line. And that’s a good thing, as it will foster more i-options for consumers.
But first things first, let’s make it through this year’s iPhone announcement. Remember, Apple is holding a media event this Tuesday where it’s expected to unveil two new handsets: the low-cost 5C, and the iPhone 5S with built-in fingerprint sensor.
