The next generation iPhone will feature a 4″ display, according to two separate reports from Reuters and Wall Street Journal.
The dual reports appear to confirm long existing speculation that Apple would increase the size of the new iPhone screens from the current 3.5″ display to a larger 4″ display. Larger displays are increasingly common in the smartphone world, and both Reuters and WSJ cite competition from Android phones as part of the motivation to increase the screen size.
Other details are scant and the source of the information is the routinely vague “people familiar with the situation”, but WSJ and Reuters have a history of providing accurate Apple rumors and leaks in the past.
Assuming existing iPhone 5 rumors pan out, the next-gen phone could potentially include the following features:
- 4″ Display at similar screen resolution to existing iPhone models
- 4G LTE connectivity
- A5X CPU borrowed from the iPad 3
- 10 megapixel or higher camera
- All new redesigned enclosure
- Ships with iOS 6
The next iPhone is expected to launch later this year, likely around September or October.
