Apple's (AAPL) Next iPhone Will Have Larger, Easier-to-See Screen

May 16, 2012 7:44 AM EDT
Bigger isn't always better....unless in reference to mobile phone screens, in which case that rule goes right out the window.

According to reports Wednesday, Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) is aiming for a larger display on its next-generation iPhone: "The New iPhone" (our name, not Apple's).

Citing folks familiar with the situation, the WSJ said Apple has put in orders for a 4-inch display, which is 14.3 percent bigger than the current offering. The display will still be about 7 percent smaller than 4.3-inch display offerings from Samsung, HTC, and others.

Multiple suppliers like LG Display (NYSE: LPL), Sharp Corp., and Japan Display, Inc. are being tapped for prototypes and testing. Prior reports have suggested display-makers are working on In-Cell display technology to provide for a thinner profile on the iPhone.

Other features mentioned in previous articles include potential 4G technology, Liquidmetal (OTC: LQMT) casing, a beveled body, and a new chip.
