Apple testing larger screens for iPhones and tablets, says WSJ

Apple revolutionized the smartphone when they released the iPhone 5 with a 4-inch display. Kidding. In all honesty, the larger display gave the iPhone user a greater smartphone experience. A few weeks ago there was a report by Reuters stating that Apple is potentially working on launching two new iPhones next year: one with a 4.7-inch display and the other with a 5.7-inch display.

News coming from the Wall Street Journal’s Asian supplier sources this morning that Apple is currently testing larger screens for iPhones and tablets, specifically asking for a “prototype smartphone screens larger than 4 inches and has also asked for screen designs for a new tablet device measuring slightly less than 13 inches diagonally.” WSJ noted that Apple declined to comment on the rumour and “Whether the designs will make their way to market is unclear.”

Apple, if the leaks are all true, is expected to release an entry-level iPhone this September targeted to those on a budget. This has been called the ‘iPhone Lite” and will come in a multitude of colours, including green, yellow, blue and pink. As for the next iPhone – possibly called the iPhone 5S – is also rumoured for a release in September and have the same design lines and screen size as the iPhone 5, just better specs.
