New iPhone rumored to come redesigned, feature a 4-inch screen
Apple is planning to launch a completely redesigned iPhone in the third quarter of the year with a 4-inch display and sleek unibody case, according to Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White.

“The buzz around the new iPhone 5 is growing in Asia and speculation around the timing of the launch has begun,” White said in a note to investors.

“In our view, this will be the most significant iPhone upgrade with a four-inch screen and a new, sleek look that we believe will require a Unibody case,” White added. “This new, sleek look will be the most important reason that consumers decide to upgrade to the iPhone 5, while we believe the addition of 4G will also attract buyers of the new device. We believe the iPhone 5 ramp for the December quarter could be extraordinary, dwarfing previous launches and driving the stock closer to our $1,001 price target.”

The analyst expects the new iPhone to land in stores in either August or September with LTE connectivity. Earlier, we’ve heard Asian publications report that a Foxconn HR hinted at an official launch in October. Preliminary production of components for the net iPhone is said to start in June.

We saw a big chunk of last year’s rumors about the iPhone go into the garbage bin, so we’d take this with an extra grain of salt. Just in case.

Have owned every iPhone since the original and I'm hoping for a bigger screen. Big screen plus at least 720 resolution for my next phone in June :D

And what if there won't be a bigger screen and 720 resolution, do you still buy it?

P.S.
I guess, yes, you will! And if I'm right, then why? Because it is Apple? :)

Also if you have made decision to buy iPhone, you shouldn't bother about the specifications, because they shouldn't be important for you.

Best comment of the year !

It is so true : with apple you buy what they offer. You have no other choice. They decide for you. Same device for all fans

Isn't that like the pot calling the kettle black?

A guy shares his opinions and out comes the hate posts. You wonder if the android camp are just bitter at the core.

Nope, we're just bitter that Apple still exist...They should go back to their little hole and continue making retard computers for their wannabe hipster fanbase.

If I took everything off my home screens except the 4 main buttons and used no other themes, my phone would NEVER lag. But since I like different themes and can use live Widgets, then every now and then slow down my phone showing a little lag.

@denmcdon: By "work" you mean dropping connections, having crummy signal strength, bricking after a factory update, and that shatters from a short drop? Sounds great, very appealing.

That's because the iPhone is only a screen with icons, NOTHIG MORE. Android OS uses more resources for more apps running and Widgets running in the background. This has already been talked about a thousand times. Who are you trying to convince here? My Evo s**t on the IPhone 4 except for the screen and my Photon s**ts on the iPhone 4s again except for the screen. There's not 1 thing, READ THIS,NOT ONE THING the iPhone can do my Photon can't do. Lag here and there makes up for complete control over how my phone looks and operates to my desires.

Well my home girl has a iPhone 4, got it when it came out, paid for the apple care and has had the phone replaced 6 times. All she has on it is a Facebook app and angry birds. Ether the text messages stop working, or the touchscreen stops working. Yea they dont have issues lmao. The last visit she made to the Apple store, the manager told her he would upgrade her iPhone 4 to the iPhone 4s. She said she would rather have a refund and buy a Windows Phone before getting another iPhone.

I've never had a screen or phone shatter on me. Granted I don't drop them much, but I by phones with the expectation they'll be exposed to some abuse, so I'll buy a more durable one over a pretty one every time. I once used my Nokia 3590 as an emergency hammer and, while the faceplate was torn up a bit, a simple faceplate change and it was like new
