Apple has decided on the bigger 4.6-inch display for its next iPhone and started placing orders to its suppliers, the Maeil Business Newspaper said, quoting an unnamed industry source, reports Reuters.
A recent survey reported that people actually want a larger screen on their next Smartphone. Most of the Android handsets have already crossed 4.6-inch screen size to accommodate support for Long Term Evolution (LTE). If Apple wants to get LTE on board on the next generation iPhone it might have to go away with its 3.7-inch screen but that’s highly unlikely.
As Gruber points out:
“The new iPhone would need way more pixels than the current 960 × 640 iPhone display. (If they increased the size but kept the pixel count the same, it would drop beneath Apple’s “retina display” threshold — not going to happen.) That means every app in the App Store would need to be redesigned/resized.”
That seems highly unlikely to us and wouldn’t want to fall prey to fragmentation like their archrival, Android.
