    That would be sweet if that's the case!. As long as it has a 3.7 inch or bigger screen, I'm happy. We'll find out tomorrow.

    Apple is the leader and will have 6" screens in the iPhone 5 w 3280x1840 resolution

    I would hope Apple would make this change, rather than just an internal upgrade. I play with a Samsung S2 this weekend and it makes the iPhone look a little dated. Not only on size and weight, but its so fast.

    hmmm...I remember Steve Jobs said case makers were the #1 reason why hardware leaks happen.

    If that's the new iPhone 5 I'll be all over it like syphilis.

    I'd be surprised if they launched only an iPod touch with a bigger screen, I think it would piss quite a few people off.

    There's a shortage of hysterical, crazy, rumors this time. Frankly it's worrisome :(

    But this one's pretty nutty. Perhaps there is hope.

    I would say this... Hard candy is making 50k cases for a screen we know has not been produced in any quantity. That alone should be pretty strong evidence a new iPhone will not have that screen.

    It could be a new touch or 3G touch that will come out in a month or so. I just think it is highly unlikely they could have tamped up production of a new screen to meet iPhone demands with nobody knowing.

    What did you think about the inferior resolution and the vastly inferior pixel density?

    A larger screen is most welcome from my side, as long as the overall dimensions of the next iPhone are not affected. If this is the case, don't you think that a 4.44 inches display is way to large? :confused:

    From the iPhone 4 AntennaGate press confrence

    "Despite the fact that Apple CEO Steve Jobs reported at the company's iPhone 4 press conference that it does not share product designs with case makers ahead of time due to their history of such leaks, Apple's manufacturing partners have been known in some cases to leak information to case manufacturers to enable them to get a head start on production before a new product launches. Other case manufacturers have admitted that they simply base their designs on prevailing rumors as they seek to have as much of their design work done ahead of the actual device introduction as possible."

    The only problem with that is that it won't happen this year. I do not think that we will see an iPhone 5 soon. Maybe next year.

    That is not an appropriate answer.

    Straight from the article Hard Candy CEO Tim Hickman says:

    "We've placed our bets"

    Which means; they're guessing. It's probably an educated guess. More educated than anyone posting here, as I haven't seen anyone mention 4.4" thus far, but still a guess.
