The screen size will be half an inch larger diagonally compared with Apple’s 3.5-inch iPhone 4S and will have enhanced resolution from 960 by 540 to 1136 by 640.
Digitimes reports that the device will also come with an enhanced resolution, upgraded from 960 by 540 to 1136 by 640, as well as a bigger display that will be half an inch larger diagonally than the current iPhone.
The site’s sources claim that thanks to these panel specifications the handset will be the number one 4-inch smartphone on the market as its resolution will be higher than that of other 4-inch devices from Samsung Electronics, Sony and Sharp.
The insiders revealed that the future iPhone will use in-cell touch screen panels mad by Japan Display, LG Display and Sharp.
The three companies have reportedly faced problems in maintaining high yield rates but the sources say that they have been overcome now and production is underway.
The insiders also believe that the iPhone 5’s larger display will determine other vendors to come with 4-inch screen devices to face competition.
