New iPhone To Feature ‘Screen Expansion’ At 4.8-inch Displays

A lot of rumours were circulating regarding Apple’s next big move in innovating their iPhone, with ‘big’ being the keyword being used. From reports which originally began appearing a couple of months ago till the new one which appeared today, Apple is working on something ‘big’. And that something is the internal prototype testing of bigger iPhones, with screen sizes ranging from 4.3-inches all the way up to 6-inches, which probably will be another product altogether. Perhaps the iPhone phablet is indeed in the works and Apple wants to gain ground with its competition, such as the Nokia Lumia 1520 and Galaxy Note 3.

“Despite still seeing risk to CQ4 and FY13 revs, we now believe better [gross margins] will allow Apple to skate by until iPhone 6 launches with its 4.8″ screen,” Peter Misek, an analyst at Jefferies & Co. ,  wrote in a note. “We est ~50% of smartphone shipments have >4″ screens and that iPhone 6 will catalyze a large upgrade cycle. The stock is attractive based on the attitude change, FY15 revs >+15%, and valuation.”

The rumours indicate that the next iPhone “6”, which will undoubtedly be launched in 2014, will come with a 4.8-inch display. We don’t know exactly how the number 4.8 was reached, but it is a  believable rumour. Apple’s next iPhone will undoubtedly be bigger, but reliable hard evidence has yet to arise. Therefore the iPhone 5s along with its fingerprint sensation and colourful iOS 7 interface will still remain the main subject attraction, for now at least.
