The rumors about iPhone 5 have started to begin. This is not the first time when you are hearing about the iPhone 5 coming soon or the next iPhone launch can be the iPhone 5. If you recall October in which iPhone 4S was launched, and we were expecting iPhone 5 to debut. The rumors regarding iPhone 5 were so strong that everyone believed that iPhone 5 will debut. At the last moment what we saw was an iPhone 4S. Apple continued their history of iPhone launching series. At 2010’s WWDC, Apple announced iPhone 4 and before that Apple released iPhone 3GS after iPhone 3G. So, this time we should have expected about iPhone 4S because after iPhone 4, the turn of the iPhone 4S will come and then iPhone 5.
Until the last launch of the iPhone 4S, we were also expecting some design changes whereas the design came out to be the same as the iPhone 4, and it had only some hardware changes with a personal assistant called SIRI. SIRI was one of the best things released in iPhone 4S which everyone is willing to have on their devices. The iPhone 4S carries a 3.5-inch screen which was rumored to be a 4-inch screen. This time Apple is expected to release the iPhone 5 with a complete new design and a bigger screen. The screen size is said to be 4.6 inch, which is almost about the same size of its competitor’s phone called Samsung Galaxy S II. No doubt that back in 2007 Apple released the touch phone technology, and its entire competitors took the advantage of it. Now Apple’s competitors hold half market share than their single iOS Device.
The report of a 4.6-inch screen size display come from a Korean Media, Maeil Business Newspaper, reported by Reuters that:
Apple has decided on the bigger 4.6-inch display for its next iPhone and started placing orders to its suppliers; the Maeil Business Newspaper said, quoting an unnamed industry source.
Where Apple is planning to release a 4.6-inch iPhone this year, they shouldn’t forget that Samsung, the major competitor released Samsung Galaxy S II last year with the same screen size in April. If Apple comes up with this new screen size, so we can expect another lawsuit by Samsung against Apple soon. The huge size of the screen would also be difficult to carry one because the iPhone wouldn’t be very much handy.
To see a 4.6-inch iPhone, people over adr-studio, have done a great job by designing a concept of the iPhone 5. This doesn’t mean that the iPhone 5 will look the same way as it is shown. They have designed the iPhone concept based on all previous rumors about it. The design will be slim, retina display, and include a 4.6-inch screen. The concept looks really great.

The concept design is really great but still a 4.6-inch iPhone 5 will work the way it should?
