Apple will equip a new iPhone model extended to four-inch screen and casing made from a single sheet of aluminum.
About this site AppleInsider reported with reference to the analyst Topeka Capital Markets Brian White.
This conclusion is made on the basis of Wight visiting factories in China and Taiwan. The analyst believes that manufacturers are preparing to start manufacturing some parts for the sixth-generation iPhone in June, and to market the device itself, in its opinion, is scheduled for the autumn.
One of the main intrigue - will change if the size of the display in the new iPhone. All were released to date, have a smartphone generation display with a diagonal of 3.5 inches.
Although before the October announcement of the iPhone 4S, some unofficial sources speculated that the device will receive the 4-inch screen, apparently this model was almost identical to its predecessor, the iPhone 4.
White writes that this year's iPhone still gets a 4-inch display. Other sources agree with this as a prediction and say that the diagonal of the display will remain unchanged.
There is a more radical view that says that Apple is in pursuit of the top manufacturers of Android-smartphone equip the prepared model of the iPhone 4,6-inch screen. However, most experts call this the development of the popular line of devices is unlikely.
