Today, according to a new report from Reuters, Apple is considering using significantly larger displays for future iPhone models, suggesting that the company is heavily testing 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch iPhone models that may launch next year. Currently, the newest iPhone, the iPhone 5, already features an enlarged 4-inch display over its predecessors’ smaller 3.5-inch screens.
Reuters also mentions Apple’s supposed plans for later this year, proposing that the company will release a revamped iPhone 5S with built-in fingerprint sensor technology and the lower-cost multicolored iPhone that’s been rumored for months now sometime in September.
Furthermore, in a separate report, Macotakara helps to confirm the above information by claiming that the cheaper iPhone will adopt a similar color scheme as the old iPhone 4 bumpers, while the iPhone 5S will be released with a gold model in addition to traditional black and white variations, which strangely enough matches a leaked alleged gold iPhone 5S SIM tray.
Finally, Reuters reiterates whispers from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, stating that, while Apple had a trial production for the lower-cost iPhone scheduled for this month, complications with the various color coatings have slowed the process.
Stay tuned for complete coverage on future iPhone models as we approach the rumored release for the iPhone 5S this fall.
