We’ve heard a lot of rumors related to the iPhone 5 and it’s release date – some sources point to September while others point to October. But oddly enough, we haven’t heard much about a 4-inch iPhone 5 in quite a while; until now.
According to an extremely accurate analyst, Shaw Wu, the iPhone 5 will change everything (again). He claims that a large display combined with an even thinner profile will make this next iPhone one to remember:
It turns out that we are picking up that this interim iPhone refresh in the Fall timeframe could be a bigger upgrade than we expected. We believe this makes sense to improve the iPhone experience without making it too bulky as we have seen with models from competitors.
In addition, the change in screen size will result in an iPhone that’s only slightly bigger than the current iPhones (comparison pictured below):
While this rumor may seem a little outrageous, I wouldn’t put it past Apple (especially when you consider how many phones on the market have 4-inch screens). Stay tuned for more iPhone 5 related news, rumors and updates!
