If you have been keeping up with everything Apple, you will know that the current hot item as of today is the iPhone 5S. It has been widely rumored that the Cupertino company is working on a device that's very similar to the iPhone 5, except for the performance bump. Based on the previous patterns (the iPhone 3G to 3GS and iPhone 4 to iPhone 4S), we can expect the iPhone 5S to drop sometime this year. However, one can say that the current rumors are simply bland and uninteresting. To make things interesting, an analyst says that the new iPhone will be sold in multiple screen sizes.
An analyst that goes by the name Brian White at Topeka Capital is livening things up by saying that the fruit company is about to release the next iPhone in multiple variants, screen-size wise. White who's on his seventh-day tour of tech suppliers in China and Taiwan said:
After our meeting with a tech-supply chain company, we walked away with the view that Apple will release the iPhone 5S in at least two screen sizes this summer and possibly three. Essentially, we believe Apple is coming around to the fact that one size per iPhone release does not work for everyone and offering consumers an option has the potential to expand the Company’s market share.
If anyone can recall, Apple has taken flak for not making the screen bigger with the iPhone 4S. The company made the screen taller with the iPhone 5 but it seems that for some folks, this is not enough. Other smartphone manufacturers like Samsung and HTC have been making 5-inch devices. In comparison, Apple's handset just feels so tiny. While there are those that find those big screen phones to be unwieldy, there are also many who thinks it's nice to have a bigger phone.
If Apple is indeed offering multiple screen sizes for the iPhone 5S, then it could be a positive development. For this matter, it is always a good thing to give options to customers. Apple is already offering multiple screen sizes for Macbooks and the iPad, so it's quite plausible that the company will adopt the same strategy with the iPhone. There are of course possible risks like fragmentation for developers. We'll just have to wait and see if this particular rumor checks out.
