    As posted at, the display on the next-generation iPhone will be still of size 3.5".


    News on September 4. According to an insider, the mass production of iPhone 5 was already started this week. The insider revealed that the form factor of the iPhone 5 is basically the same as the iPhone 4s, just a little thinner than the iPhone 4s. As rumored on the internet, the iPhone 5 supports 4G LTE and the 3.5 mm earphone jack is at the bottom of the phone body. In contrary to the rumor on the internet, the size of the iPhone 5 remains to be 3.5 inches.

    I haven't bought into any of the rumors for this reason, let's wait until Apple makes it official.

    I would laugh so hard and also cry if the next iPhone still had a 3.5" screen.

    I am not a fan of the idea of just making the iPhone taller, would have liked it both wider and taller. But it at least is something. If what the OP says is true and they keep the same screen size it will be a massive disappointment imo.

    I won't be getting it either way, I am more interested in the Android side these days.

    I'd regret my decision to sell my 4S early, and probably go for a galaxy III or something. I really want a bigger phone.

    If this is real, I am still going to get the phone because my iPhone 4 isn't holding up very well :(. Though I am still hoping that they up the screen size just a bit (so I can see more in an email while I am typing it, so yes, taller would work for me perfectly)....and so I can get the latest and greatest when it comes to Siri, and cameras.

    I would be disappointed, but the world really won't end, as I am happy to get 4G and a faster processor out of this whole ordeal.

    Let's see what Apple will come out with.

    I think 3.5 would be fine

    Why is it, that as time moves on, the size of the screen/device must increase? If the iPhone 5 is 4" fine, if it's not, fine. The 'disease of more' certainly showing itself..

    Should we be disappointed if the next iMac isn't 30"?

    Threw the page in Google translate. Love this part:

    Dumbo Network reporter learned from informed sources, iPhone5 indeed, as Jimmy said: iPhone5 will become longer, thinner, headphone jack at the bottom instead. But not a 4-inch screen, but such iPhone4s 3.5-inch screen.

    I'd be happy to see no change in display size. Then perhaps Apple would experience a drop in sales. That's the only way to get them to wake up & innovate.

    Otherwise, as long as they can sell warmed over models they will. The profit is mind boggling when they use the same old design over & over.

    As much as I would like to get the new iphone as my first ever Iphone I'm in the same boat. I can't stand another 3.5in screen. My droid incredible at 3.7 is tiny enough.

    It was really news on September 4! I mistyped, possibly because I also put the 4th day as the month when I did the translation! Blame that on me, not on the news!
