A Wall Street analyst claims that Apple?s design for the next iPhone has already been locked down with a much bigger display.
Increase in Screen Display
The next iPhone will not only have a bigger screen size of 4.8 inches, but also boasts of ultra high speed WiFi, according to Cowen and Company?s Timothy Arcuri.
He further cites to investors on Wednesday the supply chain checks to prove his claims. Arcuri says that most of the next handset?s innovation will come from the newest software services that connects the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, Apple?s Passbook (a virtual wallet for tickets, boarding passes, coupons and many more), and the new iBeacon technology.
The iBeacon technology allows retailers to communicate with customers using their smartphones and provide them with incentives and information when visiting the store.
Chinese blog C Technology claimed in November that Apple did some field testing of the prototype iPhones that come with larger screens up to 5 inches.
Bloomberg also had a claim where Apple was using curved glass to make the screens of the devices appear larger. This makes the edges of the display run over the sides of the iPhone.
