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? :)

oh arent u so smart? you know, not ever apple user goes after iphones because it has an apple logo... some people actually like ios? and please dont call said people stupid and uneducated because they have been documented to be rich and smart... but then again android fans tend to cite that as a negative as well... just cant be pleased...

but seriously, having an iphone isnt "apple following"-- for a lit of people its better than any other phone.. be a little respectful

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.

"nobody ask you for your opinion..."

First, don't talk for all!
I don't think that someone asked your opinion too, but that doesn't mean that you cant express it. There is facility for commenting and I can freely express mine opinion, so I do it.

"...honestly we dont care..."

Again, don't talk for all. You - doesn't mean we!

"...can you leave now"

Yes, I can, but I won't.

he might be referring to the subtle, indirect jabs you are taking at iOS. the level of hatred Android fans have for iOS is disturbing. almost like a jealous sibling who wants all the attention. the android camp is definitely bitter at the core. the reality is that everything we buy someone decides for you what device is capable of. Apple is not much different than Toyota or Samsung Electronics. b/c you put your measly $200-$300 on the table for a phone doesn't entitle you to say what goes on w/it b/c at the end of the day...you don't know how to build a phone. have your opinion, which is cool, but where Android fans cross the line (constantly) is that they look down @ those who don't like what they like. open-platform user...closed mind, its an oxymoron...to sum it up, pot calling the kettle black.

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.
