Is the iPhone 5 Going to Have a Bigger Screen?

Posted In Apple news, iPhone, Uncategorized - By LeAndra On Tuesday, February 15th, 2011 With 3 Comments

There have been tons of iPhone 5 rumors coming out, but I figured one more couldn’t hurt, right?

Digitimes recently said that Apple’s fifth generation iPhone would have a 4-inch screen instead of the original 3.5-inch display.  It’s being said that this new display is being made to better compete with the Google Android handsets from Motorola, HTC and Samsung.

“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.”

Also, it’s said that this next generation iPhone may have a single- or dual-core A5 processor, which is something that’s been talked about for quite a while now.  If Apple does launch the iPhone 5 with dual core A5 processors, they will be in direct competition with Android’s Tegra 2 dual-core processors .

“Apple is reportedly looking to outsource the production of its A4 processor as well as the next-generation ARM Cortex-A9-based A5 processor to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), according to industry sources.

According to Digitimes Research, the iPad 2 will support an enhanced version of the A4 and the A5 will power the iPhone 5.  TSMC will initially produce the improved A4, and could likely become the exclusive manufacturer of the A5.”

Personally, I think having a 4-inch screen is perfect, and I quite like the idea.  What do you think?  Should Apple keep it the original 3.5 inches or bump it up another half inch?  Let me know in your comments, I look forward to reading them!

    My daughter just got the Android, and although after having 4 Iphones it seemed confusing to use, I was jealous of her huge screen. Yes a 4 inch screen in Iphone5 would be enough to keep me with Apple, but the 3.5 inch screen in Iphone4 is really too small in my opinion.

    I think making the iPhone 5 screen four inches. The display on the iPhone 4 is way too small. I wouldn’t mind it they made it 4.3. But no bigger. Then the iPhone will be perfect
