When it comes to Apple, one should take every rumor with a pinch of salt. This recent one suggests that the Cupertino based company has plans to come out with a larger iPhone in 2013, dubbed the “iPhone Math.”
This rumored phone would allegedly feature a 4.8-inch screen and an 8-megapixel camera. This comes from Brightwire.com, which translates stories from the China Times and Taiwan-based Commercial Times.
Though the bizzare name “iPhone Math” seems very unlikely, It’s quite possible that Apple may indeed release an iPhone with a larger screen, to compete with the android “phablets” that have become extremely popular in the past year.
Apple will hold its fourth-quarter earnings call on Wed., Jan. 23. Its performance since the launch of the iPhone 5 may well determine which direction Apple is heading.
