Apple to Increase iPhone Display to At Least 5-Inches, Launch OLED iWatch?

ETNews is reporting that Apple will make significant changes to the displays of its future devices including the iPhone.

Citing industry sources, the site claims that the iPhone will have its 4-inch display increased to at least 5-inches. This aligns somewhat with a recent WSJ report that said Apple is investigating screen sizes from 4.8-inches to 6-inches.

The site says Apple will release a new 9.7-inch iPad with a design similar to the iPad mini later this year, as expected. A Retina Display iPad mini is said to arrive next year, as some rumors have suggested. Finally, Apple is also said to be preparing a 12.9-inch iPad for release next year.

ETNews says Apple is planning to adopt a flexible OLED for its rumored iWatch and has hired OLED experts from LG Display. It's also considering the potential of equipping the MacBook with an oxide circuit-equipped LCD panel for better power consumption.

Finally, the report also says that display production is being shifted to LG Display and Samsung Display as Japan Display looks to diversify.

Yeah, a little bigger screen size would be nice! 4.5 or 4.7 would be great! But just don't make it longer again because that would look retarded like you're holding a stick!

Just because of that to switch to a poor built galacrap? The market share increased a by a little, would millions really leave that easily? The main reson it stays the same unless being taller again (which it won't) is that it's one hand use and easier grip!

What the fuk are you talking about! Samsung is NOT the only one that makes bigger phone. Sony, Moto, HTC, LG, and the rest of the world, all make bigger phone than the iphone. Aren't you scared of Samsung, feeling insecure and talk smack about Samsung!

I'm just saying apple did improve iPhone enough or else people would've like "the system is good now but I hate the size" b/c that's how other phone are doing, and this guy thinks people left apple just b/c of screen size, it's performance that we all need and iPhone may not have the same one hand use unless it's .2" wider.
