Now that the long-awaited Samsung Galaxy S III has been revealed, the next Next Big Thing is of course the iPhone 5.
That’s the good word according to “three people with knowledge of the plans… who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public”.
Steve Jobs passed away aged 56 last October, the day after the iPhone 4S was unveiled, but is thought to have been closely involved with future products before his passing.
Bloomie’s sources say the iPhone will undergo an “overhaul”, and arrive with a display larger than 3.5in. Unfortunately, that’s as specific as it gets.
All iPhones to date have rocked 3.5in displays. Recent rumours suggest the iPhone 5 display will stretch to 4in, which is a fairly significant leap, but still a good bit smaller than the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Of course, bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better, with many believing the tipping point lies around 4.3in.
