Next iPhone to have at least a 4" screen, says Wall Street Journal, display production starts in June

0. phoneArena 16 May 2012, 06:40 posted on

The production of those displays has apparently been poised to start next month, which makes sense if Apple would want to put it all together towards the end of the summer. The WSJ report did not pinpoint a screen size, but the sources have mentioned it will be no less than 4"...

Actually stats show iPhone dominates in business. Also iPhone users tend to be older, more educated and wealthier along with more techy.

Studies show the average age for android users is 14-24. Android users are drawn in by cheap phones and free apps. This fits the age group because 14-24 are usually broke.

You're not the average 15 year old. Most people your age have no income and even young adults are usually broke because they're not established.

iphone 5 will stay 3.5 inches, new body design, better and faster graphic, and new map. 1gb ram, nfc everything else is still the same. keep in mind apple model think diffirent and simplicity.

Is there any evidence that Apple (or Steve Jobs) wanted exclusively 3.5-inch screen beacuse it could be easily reachable with thumb in one-handed operation?

I'm asking this because it's contradictory to the whole screen philosophy of iPhone at the first place - to use technology by using two fingers (pinch-to-zoom and other gestures), which could be almost impossible with one-hand operation. Besides, it's not in the spirit of smartphone concept anyway.

The more probable reason is technological deadlock of Apple's puristic approach to standards they establish - they got away with Retina in 2010, but now they are stuck with 3.5-inchers because otherwise they must sacrifice on of their most important postulates - app resolution compatibility or over-300ppi resolution. Now they have no choice but to change these standards, and last time they got away when they introduced iPhone 4S was thanks to this absurd theory of one-hand operation.

4 inch is considered kinda small these days but its about time apple is making an attempt to keep up. The interesting thing to see is will apple still keep the outdated square screen aspect ratio design or go for the current hd standard of a 16:9 aspect screen

They need to start releasing the phone in the summer time like they did with models 1-4. Being released in the fall is a bummer.

Wow almost every comment here is an android troll. It's sad PA allows this.

Back to reality a 4inch screen would be a nice upgrade. Most people aren't interested in giant tablet phones. I'm looking forward to a 4" screen, LTE, and some nice sw updates like Siri updates and the new iOS maps we were reading about.

I know the new iPhone launch will be a dark dark day for andro, remix and the like.

I just don't understand what drives people with irrational hate to the point they post on Apple articles daily. I mean it's become a part of their daily lives to announce how they hate Apple. It's a very strange phenomenon.

"I mean it's become a part of their daily lives to announce how they hate Apple."

And your daily lives to announce how you love Apple. So, what the problem?
Maybe they don't want to hide their feelings. :)

BS. You very often throw the first salvo in Android articles, usually with made up facts and lies. You are exactly like the iPhone haters you're crying about.

A lot of folks are complaining 4 inches is too small. I feel 4.7 inches is too small. 5.3 inches is perfect!
