KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi-Kuo expects the next iPhone to come with a larger display measuring somewhere between 4.5 and 5 inches and based on the in-cell touch screen technology.
Korean site ET News also backed up the idea of a bigger-sized screen of at least 5 inch for the future Apple smartphone.
The device may also see Apple shift from Samsung to TSMC in the production of A8 processors.
Concept designs of the iPhone are already making the rounds on the net.
A mockup with a 4.5 inch display echoes the rumors about a bigger screen and also sports a 13-megapixel camera with 1.5u pixels f/2.2 aperture, a fingerprint identity sensor built into the Home button, and 1080p HD video recording 120 fps among others.
A concept that we’d love to see turned into reality is the one belonging to designer Heo Leo.
Regarding the recently-released iPhone 5S and 5C it was reported this week that Prepaid carrier Boost Mobile may soon include the handsets into its offer.
@evleaks published leaked photos of what seem to be Boost Mobile promotional posters for the two smartphones.
iPhone 5S is currently the top-selling smartphone at the four major carriers in the U.S. in September, according to a report by Canaccord Genuity.
More iPhone 5S units were sold than any other phone at AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint.
The iPhone 5C is placed at the second or third spot at all four carriers with “strong sales.”
Things are also heading for the better with the iPhone 5S in terms of store availability as the device can be found more easily than the iPhone 5 at the same point.
And here’s how you can find out if there are enough new iPones at the nearest Apple retail stores.
A new website called iPhone-Check gives you the opportunity to check the smatphone’s availability at nearby vendors by listing results from the 20 closest Apple Stores that have the handset.
The tool even lets you choose the color and carrier for your iPhone 5S after entering your zip code.
