Based on a few reports it seems that the Apple’s new iPhone will feature a 4-inch display. Big enough to help Apple compete in display size with the counterpart Android sets.
However, inclusion of 4-inch display is not going to a an easy bite o swallow for both, Apple and the customers. Will the display fit in the current encasement? If not, would you want to buy a bigger iPhone? Our friends at 9to5Mac have drafted a mock-up of how Apple’s new iPhone would look like with a 4-inch display in same encasement.
It sure isn’t the prettiest iPhone you will see. If Apple’s recent announcement of $4B investment is in display technology to get it to the edge like that, they need to rethink. If not, Apple will require bigger encasement for iPhone 5, which is how it’s more likely to be, in my opinion.
