iPhone big screen

For past few weeks there have a lot of reports that Apple will be finally increasing the screen size of its next-generation iPhone. Now, 9to5Mac has also joined the chorus in the regard.

This website has just published a report that, if true, confirms a number of existing theories regarding Apple’s next handset including display size and resolution. It also talks about the rumored smaller charging port.

According to the report, Apple is currently testing multiple new iPhone prototypes.

“Right now we know of a few next-generation iPhone candidates in testing. These prototype phones are floating around Apple HQ in thick, locked shells in order to disguise the exterior design to “undisclosed” employees. We know of two next-generation iPhones in testing with a larger display: the iPhone 5,1 and iPhone 5,2.”

The website is not quite sure which model will make it to retail shelves. However, it says that both of the devices include new displays that measure 3.95-inches diagonally with resolutions of 1136 x 640. This matches up with the recurring 4-inch iPhone theory, which says that the display will get a bit taller but stay the same width, that has been floating around for the past month.

The report also mentioned that both of the prototypes feature all-new, smaller dock connectors.

“Apple will be bringing these dock connectors to all of their iOS devices over time, and it is note exactly a “pill-shape” as rumored. It’s basically a much narrower version of the current squared off (on the corners) dock connector. It is between the size of a Micro-USB and Mini-USB connector.”
