Next Apple iPhone to feature larger screenby

Technology giant Apple has placed orders with its Asian suppliers of iPhone displays, according to recent reports. The displays are considerably larger than the 3.5" screen of current iPhone models.

Apple plans to use a larger screen of at least 4 inches corner-to-corner for its next-generation iPhone, and has already placed orders for the new displays with suppliers in South Korea and Japan, according to recent reports from the region.

The new iPhone, anticipated to go on sale in October this year, will be the first iPhone to sport a larger display with an increase in viewing area of at least 30%.

Apple's decision to equip the next iPhone with a larger screen represents part of a competitive response to Samsung, whose Android-based smartphones feature large display sizes up to 4.8 inches and have helped make Samsung the world's largest mobile phone maker this year.

Unlike other major consumer-electronics brands, Apple does not manufacture its own products such as the iPhone. Instead, the California-based firm hires manufacturing specialists - mainly in Taiwan and China - to assemble the devices using components sourced mainly in Asia.
