After a story from WSJ that we brought to your attention yesterday, Reuters has come forward today and also confirmed that the next-gen iPhone will have a 4-inch display. According to one of its sources, the next-gen iPhone screens have been put on order.
“The new iPhone screens will measure 4 inches from corner to corner…Early production of the new screens has begun at three suppliers: Korea’s LG Display Co Ltd, Sharp Corp and Japan Display Inc, a Japanese government-brokered merger combining the screen production of three companies. It is likely all three of the screen suppliers will get production orders from Apple, which could begin as soon as June. That would allow the new iPhone to go into production as soon as August…”
I think it is pretty safe to say now that Reuters and The Wall Street Journal have confirmed it, we should see a 4-inch screen at the next Keynote event. Both these companies have a great record when it comes to finding facts before the next iPhone has been released, so hopefully that record continues. It’s still a rumor, it just seems a more likely one now.
Personally I’m ecstatic about this news. I’ve wanted a larger screen every time I have hung out with my friends that have the Samsung Note. Hopefully now the jealousy can subside.
What about you guys? Would you be satisfied with 4-inches on the next iPhone? Or would you want even bigger? Chime in through the comments down below.
