Apple launched the 9.7-inch iPad few weeks back with Retina display featuring four times more pixels than the iPad 2 and the same resolution is now expected to be introduced in the next generation iOS device.
According to Reuters, Apple’s iPhone 5 will incorporate a gargantuan 4.6-inch “retina” display and will be launched around the second quarter this year. The journalists’ are basing their assertion on a recent report published in Korean Maeil Business Newspaper.
Speaking of displays, a report last year suggested that Apple is planning to equip the iPhone 5 with slightly larger 4.0-inch display. Even number of renditions, schematics, and case designs appeared hinting that the iPhone 5 will be wider, taller and much thinner than the current iPhone 4 with a curved back. If true, that would make it one of the most high-end displays on the market and much sharper than the iPhone 4S resolution display. We’re really crossing our fingers for this one.
The rumor about iPhone 5 release date has bounced back and forth several times. Most recently, a leak out of BGR suggested that Apple is prepping to launch new iPhone 5 models in the fall next year; around the same time when the iPhone 4S was launched. Now the recent report from Korean newspaper has quelled that rumor by going on the record stating that the sixth generation iPhone certainly would launch in Summer (more precisely in June).
But if Korean Newspaper source is on the level, there are a few reasons why the fruit company might keep the summer timeframe. Are these rumors a bit of a stretch? What do you want to see most in the iPhone 5? [Source: Reuters]
