This is just... hideous. iOS is dull but functional, Android is leaps ahead in terms of innovation and a fresh appearance, and we're going to get another row of bloody icons?
Choo choo, here comes the jump train from iOS next year if this is Apple's next 'big idea'

The narrow elongated display on my iPhone 5 is like half an upgrade having maintained the same width. No benefits at all in the landscape position.
Who's the dummy that thought up this rather bizarre shape?

They wouldn't add yet another resolution. Just making it even longer wouldn't help compete with the other bigger phones. They would need to just make it flat out bigger.

How can this work?
iOS as it is now supports 3 set of resolutions:
1x - 480x320 - 2:1
2x - 960x640 - 2:1
2x - 1136x640 - 16:19
It is logical for Apple to finally drop support for 1x devices with iOS 7, thus freeing 1 of the resolutions, apps have to support if they want to be only compatible with iOS 7 or above.
If Apple is to introduce a 2nd iPhone in 2013, I think it will make a lot more sence to produce a model that has the 5 screen size, the 4S internals and the 4 price tag and a new enclosure.
IMHO, the way to make a 4,8 inch (or a big ) iPhone will be to use the exact same UI proportions, only stretch them to the larger screen but double the resolution at the same time.
For a 4,8 in phone my math skills tell me a screen with 526ppi is needed.
This tech may not be available in 2013 but may be on the shelf in 2014.
The end result will be that a big iPhone will look instantly familiar, can use existing apps out of the box and will not require a doubling of screen density to to achieve a doubling of resolution.
Webpages and fonts will look amazing as will Full HD video as the screen will have 2272 x 1280 pixels. Because the UI elements will be 20% bigger general usage of the phone, especially with 2 hands will be a brease.
I just don't see this happening this year. Maybe in 2014

iPhone 5 has stunning industrial design that feels like its from the future, yet as soon as u switch it on, you feel like you're back in 2007 with all the chrome, shadow, bevel and emboss. Terrible cohesive experience
