It has been a tradition of Apple to launch upgraded version of its existing product after every year of its launch. Apple released an innovative iPhone 4S in October last year, and now, citing to South Korea’s “The Maeil Business Newspaper”, “Reuters” has reportedly stated that Apple is plannong to launch its 4.6-inch display screen iPhone in the second quarter of this year. In the beginning of this year, we informed that Antonio De Rosa working with ADR studio in Italy designed a new model for iPhone, and named “iPhone SJ”. Antonio designed the model to tribute ‘Steve Jobs’ and the device had eye-catching “edge-to-edge capacitive screen”. Likewise, a rumor at the end of February this year revealed that the company might launch its iPhone 5 by September this year.
According to Reuters report, the company has decided to implement the bigger 4.6-inch display screen into its next iPhone and already endorsed to suppliers for manufacturing of the components. The rumor depicts that the major display suppliers for the new iPhone are LG and Samsung, however, they are currently denying to make any comments.
Contemporary, Samsung is a big contender to Apple in Smartphone segment, currently, using 4.6-inch OLED display for its flagship Galaxy SII smartphone, which has been introduced in April last year.
Recently, a rumor revealed that Apple is going to launch its ‘mini iPad‘ later this year, and I think, the rumor is not reliable as i previously described. This time, the new iPhone’s rumor is also not trustworthy because Apple uses to release its new product after completion of one year, and the company launched its iPhhone 4S in October last year. That’s why, the company might not release its new iPhone within 8-months of period.
However, iPhone 4S is still doing a good business in the market worldwide, then, what’s the need of the company to launch its new iPhone. As I earlier mentioned that Apple is highly precautious about the fragmentation of its screen size, if the company implements bigger screen size into its new iPhone, then, it will create a problem for apps developers–they are developing the apps for two screen size, one for iPhone and other for its iPad. Anyway, the rumor has not any authenticity, but, I am very exited to see Apple’s new product in the market.
