iPhone Rumor of the Day 1/21 - Larger 4.8 Inch Display Coming in June?
It's Monday, which means it's time for another round of iPhone rumors. Actually, every day of the week seems to bring a new round of iPhone rumors. Anyway, Brightwire, has translated a new round of Chinese news stories and alleged reports from Hon Hai Precision Industry, Foxconn, Largan, Microelectrics Technologies and others.
What have they come up with? The "iPhone Math" which most Apple sites are speculating was mis-translated and actually means the iPhone Plus (a better name for sure). Reports believe that production will begin in March on components and April for the actual units themselves in time for a June launch. The device is said to offer a larger, 4.8 inch display (as compared to the current 4 inch).
Last week's round of Apple rumors are citing a forecast from KGI Securities analyst that's predicting an iPhone 5S this in June, along with an A7 speed upgrade, a fingerprint sensor, and a camera bump to an f2.0 aperture and a smart LED flash.
Alongside that, they're predicting a July release of the infamous cheaper iPhone that would be a low-cost version of the 5 in a plastic, colored case. Digitimes claimed that the new, cheaper iPhone will be closer in production to the iPhone 3GS which waaay back in 2009, had a plastic enclousure as well. iPhone 5 is the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever, completely redesigned to feature a stunning new 4-inch Retina display; an Apple-designed A6 chip for blazing fast performance; and ultrafast wireless technology.
