Apple Moves Toward Larger Next iPhone Screens
Apple is seeing to increase the screen size of the next iPhone to at least 4 inches from 3.5 inches, based on a report from Wall Street Journal, a move that is presumptively being built due to stiff competition with Android.
This isn’t the first hint Apple could place a larger screen at the next iPhone this year. In fact, such supposition has been rumoured for erstwhile, yet Apple has kept the iPhone display consistently at 3.5 inches for every iteration from the Apple since its release in 2007.
As the Apple plug machine is cast in motion with only a couple of weeks till the Worldwide Developers Conference in June from the Company, discuss what the new iPhone could bring is stepping up. Since Apple did not do any revolutionary changes to the design of iPhone 4S last year, a revamped face is anticipated to come this year.
The report from Wall Street Journal doesn’t give any particulars at how big the new iPhone screen would be, saying it could assess “at least 4 inches diagonally,” which would be bigger indeed than the current Apple’s 3.5-inch display. But if it is any indication, a report from Reuters earliers put forward the more accurate diagonal 4.6 inches’ measurement.
Maybe what fuels the stake at a larger-screen new iPhone is that at the preceding couple of years manufactures of Android have been pressing the size from their phone displays around 5 inches, at a bid for distinguish themselves. With a bigger-is-better mindset, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus bears a 4.65-inch screen, the whole way up to 4.8 inches at the Galaxy S III or the HTC One X with 4.7 inches.
Many ignore the bigger iPhone display’s idea due to easy one-handed operation is a huge part from the iPhone’s design, and that is only not possible on a screen from about 4.6 inches. At defense of a larger-screen handset, Android makers have discovered that lets them to produce thinner designs at phones. By producing the screen larger, Apple as well could be able to birth a more revolutionary redesign of the new iPhone. The doubt is, could Apple bring off to keep up the highest pixel density phone screen at the market if the next iPhone decides to go big?
