Apple iPhone Rumors: It is hard to imagine a week going by without a rumor pertaining to a new Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone. This is something that is discussed time and time again, as people all over the world crave information as to what the tech giant is going to roll out next.
This time around we are going to take a closer look at a rumor coming from the Far East, courtesy of Chinese mobile phone information site Laoyaoba.com and translated by BrightWire.
In short, the report says that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is set to release an upgraded iPhone 5S along with a new iPhone 6, which will include a five-inch screen. The report goes on to add that both are expected to hit the market in 2013.
Here is a breakdown of the information, as published by BrightWire:
“A source told Chinese mobile phone information site Laoyaoba.com that he has seen the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 at Apple’s suppliers. Both models may be released in 2013, according to the website’s microblog on Thursday evening.”
“The source noted that the iPhone 5S resembles the iPhone 5, and the five-inch iPhone 6 is lighter and thinner.”
“Source: Sina Tech is the technology-related news section of Sina.com, a major online media company based in China.”
Whether or not this is true remains to be seen, but it is safe to say that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) enthusiasts are craving a larger iPhone. There are many reasons for this, most commonly the fact that some competitors, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note, are larger than the iPhone.
According to AppleInsider, there is a way that a bigger screen size could be added:
“Some have speculated that Apple could launch an iPhone with a bigger 5-inch display by keeping the same 640-by-1,136-pixel resolution as the current iPhone 5 screen. Stretching those pixels out to a 5-inch display would give a lower pixel density of 264-per-inch, but it would allow developers to continue to create applications for one screen resolution.”
