The new iPhone that Apple Inc. is expected to unveil this year is
likely to have a larger display than its current models have, with
the company ordering bigger screens from its Asian suppliers,
people familiar with the matter said.
The new screens measure at least 4 inches diagonally, the people
said, compared with 3.5 inches on Apple’s latest model, the
iPhone 4S. Production is set to begin next month, the people
said. Analysts have predicted that the next iPhone will come out
in the fall.
Not much to add, other than that next month strikes me as early for production to start if it isn’t launching until fall.
