More Apple iPhone rumours… this time the iPhone 5. DigiTimes is reporting that Apple has begun testing to make the screen size 4-inches, this is an increase from the current 3.5-inch display (960 by 640 resolution). DigiTimes states that “The component suppliers noted that the production lines for Apple’s next generation iPhone have begun testing, and Apple is interesting in expanding the screen size to 4-inches “.
Other iPhone 5 rumours suggest that Apple is working on a 3 prototypes with a longer battery life, better camera and superior one having a “sliding cover” that reveals a QWERTY keyboard.
It would make sense for Apple to make an iPhone with a larger screen and not get left behind. Majority of manufacturers such as Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony Ericsson, Motorola all offer Smartphones with 4-inch or above displays.
