  • Apple Upgrading iPhone 5 with 4-inch Screen and A5 Processor

    The iPhone 4 is starting to look a little short next to the competition. Rumors coming out of Asia today indicate that Apple may be increasing the screen size of the next iPhone model to 4-inches. This would put the iPhone in line with other smart phones currently on the market such as, the Droid X2 and Evo 4G, both of which have a 4.3-inch screen.

    According to a Digitimes report, “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 to support the tablet PC market as the vendor only has a 9.7-inch iPad in the market.” Digitimes has a spotty track record, but I wouldn’t be too surprised if Apple did release an iPhone with a larger screen in the near future.

    There are also reports that Apple will upgrade the iPhone 5 to an A5 processor and that it will be based on the ARM Cortex A9 processor. The next version of the iPad is not expected to use this chip, however, but instead is expected to use an enhanced version of the A4 processor.

    With rumors continuing to swirl around the possibility of an iPhone nano, it looks as if Apple may be planning to expand the iPhone line considerably this year. Apple may not be expected to introduce any new products this year, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t hard at work improving existing product lines. The next time you upgrade your iPhone, you may have a few new options to choose from other than memory capacity.

      China, dude. China.

      EDIT: Although, you're right. Sales would still be affected in that scenario.

      on another note: All you people whining about these rumour posts, simply don't read 'em. It's the prerogative of the writers on this site to write what *they* wish to write about, which may not always be what *you* wish to read about. Or at the very least, if you feel you are being forced to read every article at gunpoint, you are surely not being forced to also write a whiny comment?

      If there is no real hardcore evidence how can it be presented to anyone? I much prefer hearing at least something to get my hopes up or down and create some type of entertainment.

      I went from an iphone 4 to the inspire on the day it came out. I can say for sure now, it was a great decision. The battery was horrible at first but after a root and a new radio firmware flash, it then took away my only complaint. The screen is better on the iphone but thats the only thing. I can overclock to 1.8 and really fly at the drop of the hat. Ill be interested to see the i5 though
