A new iPhone from Apple is expected to be launched this fall, say international analysts.
According to the Wall Street Journal, quoting sources close to the situation, the smartphone will have a bigger screen, of 3.5 inches, than the one before, but it will be slimmer, due to a new technology, says cnet.com
The components of the smartphone are already being produced in the units in Asia, according to the claims of a Japanese-language Apple blog, Macotakara, which cites listings for iPhone 5 cases on a Chinese site as proof of its claim and it says the back of the new iPhone has both glass and aluminum.
The next iPhone is expected to have a completely new design from the iPhone 4S model. This will include a wider screen and a slimmer width.
Acccording to The Wall Street Journal, iPhone’s display will incorporate “in-cell technology,” which enables a screen’s touch sensors and LCD be consolidated into one single layer. This would result in a thinner screen and a cheaper production price, says cnet.com.
Other features expected by analysts in the next iPhone are Near Field Communication (NFC) capabilities as well as the ability to support global LTE networks.
