    Default Report: iPhone 5S Models Will Offer Minimum of Two Screen Sizes


    Apple's next generation iPhone 5S will be released this summer with models offering two different screen sizes. On Tuesday, Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets said he procured the news of multiple screen sizes from an encounter with a trusted source within Apple's supply chain.

    According to White, the "iPhone 5S" could launch with two or more separate screen sizes in July.

    "We believe Apple is coming around to the fact that one size per iPhone release does not work for everyone and offering consumers an option has the potential to expand the company's market share," White said this morning.

    Although Apple continues to eye the entry-level smartphone market, White doesn't expect Apple to introduce a new iPhone model below the $300 marker without a contract subsidy.

    "We believe this price point is reassuring for investors that Apple wants to expand its market reach with consumers in developing countries such as China," White said. "However, the company will also manage its margin profile and brand accordingly."

    Will never compete with Samsung re value for money relating to features. Apple will fail eventually if the continue to hike their prices!

    If they offer a phone with a screen comparable in size to the S3, I'll stay with iPhone.

    Samsung galaxy s4 is more expensive than the iPhone. Entry model is 579 on amazon UK at the moment;/ So I don't know where you get the notion samsung are cheaper and are value?

    I hope this does not fragment the system. I'd imagine Apple already has a plan to keep the specs within control so the displays and apps aren't device specific but this seems, to me, like driving on black ice.

    Looks like we are going back to the old school days where you could hurt someone with your huge and bulky phone.

    I don't want an iPad mini. I want a phone that has a bigger screen than the current iPhone5. It doesn't have to be exactly as big as the S3 but I want it a little bit wider than the i5.

    That'd be my nightmare, if they did a 3.5 inch budget phone and only offered a properly spec'd phone with a jumbo screen. That's when I wouldn't stay with iPhone, cause I can already barely hold my iP5 in one hand (I am a pretty small woman ). If they do start offering different sizes (which I doubt, cause of fragmentation issues), I should hope they don't make the smaller phone a sh*tty one.

    Would someone mind explaining the "fragmentation" issue that might arise if they offer different sizes? I don't really understand what that is about.

    Developers would have to make graphics suited to different screen sizes and qualities. So special images for non-retina iPhone, for retina iPhone and for iPhone 5. Add another different screen size and it might require developers to make even more custom images. Lots of my apps haven't even been adapted for iPhone 5 yet, and it's been like half a year.

    Though Apple is Apple, I suppose, and if they really want to release a jumbo phone, I doubt this issue is going to stop them But I, personally, see little need.

    Why don't they just poll iphone owners and find out what we want. Personally I would only want a tiny bit bigger and I love the current slimness.

    Doesn't the fragmentation issue come up because of iPad and iPhone being different sizes already?
