Next iPhone will have a 4.6-inch retina display - report

Apple’s new iPhone will have much bigger screen, according to a South Korean media report (the country is home to one of Apple’s key component suppliers, Samsung).

The Maeil Business Newspaper, quoting an unnamed industry source, a new iPhone with a 4.6-inch “retina” display and is set to be launched around the second quarter.

iPhone 4S was introduced in October last year. Like its predecessors, it features a 3.5-inch display (a useful size for those who want to thumb the whole width of the screen while holding the phone in one hand).

The most popular Google Android-based phone, the Samsung Galaxy S2, has a 4.3-inch display.

According to leaks, its successor, the S3, will boast a 4.8-inch screen – keeping pace with the super-size craze being followed by other Android handset makers with top-of-the-line new models.

Sounds to big. They maybe trailing many different sizes but wouldn't expect them to go bigger than 4inch.

Image no more marriages etc..we'll just do whatever online or offline when you're six feet under...
