After yesterday’s report that Apple has been ordering 4-inch screens (or larger) for its next generation iPhone, Reuters chips in today Saying the same thing.
Citing sources familiar with the situation, Reuters claim the new iPhone’s screen will be exactly 4-inches from corner to corner. It’s still unknown whether the aspect ratio will stay the same (Apple could possibly fit a 4-inch screen into an iPhone 4/4S’ case), and any other details about the device are absent.
“Early production” of these new screens has begun at Korea’s LG Display Co Ltd, Sharp Corp and Japan Display Inc, sources claim, with full production starting as soon as June, which is traditionally the time when Apple unveils new iPhone versions.
We’ve heard all this back in January, when a Foxconn worker allegedly said that Apple is testing several iPhone screens, all 4-inch or larger.
All of this is, as always, unconfirmed by Apple, and the Cupertino giant has been known to surprise us now and then. Still, when the rumors are this aligned (we don’t remember anyone claiming the new iPhone will not have a larger screen), one has to think that there’s some truth beneath it all.
