Talk that the iPhone 5 will feature a larger screen is nothing new. But it got a fresh layer of credence today when yet another industry source stepped out of the shadows to testify that it’s going to happen.
According to an insider cited by Bloomberg, Apple has placed orders with Asian suppliers for panels larger than the 3.5-inch display that has been a fixture of the iPhone since 2007.
The same leaky sort also corroborated long-standing rumours that Steve Jobs had worked closely on the iPhone 5.
The handset is thought to be the last ever product from the House of Cupertino on which the mercurial, former-CEO was involved, raising its cachet with iFanboys and girls to unimaginably high levels.
Apple is expected to lift the lid on the iPhone 5 in September or October, with a spec sheet mooted to include 4G network support for super fast browsing and Near Field Communications (NFC) technology.
However, rumours that it will drop Gorilla Glass in favour of a super robust Liquidmetal construction have been dismissed by the inventor of the alloy.
