Larger Screen iPhone with 3.9-Inch Display, 1136×640 Resolution Currently in Testing

As you may know already, the iPhone rumor mill is in full motion as of late and this trend will most likely continue until its grand unveiling. One of the aspects of the next-gen iPhone that is widely speculated right now is its rumored larger display. According to a new report, Apple is reportedly testing multiple prototypes of next-generation iPhones and one of these devices have larger screens.

According to a report by 9to5Mac, they somehow know that Apple is testing a few iPhone prototypes back in its labs. This seems to go in accordance with previous reports that Apple hasn't decided with the final design of the next iPhone.

Right now we know of a few next-generation iPhone candidates in testing. These prototype phones are floating around Apple HQ in thick, locked shells in order to disguise the exterior design to “undisclosed” employees. We know of two next-generation iPhones in testing with a larger display: the iPhone 5,1 and iPhone 5,2.

While there is still no assurance which iPhone will choose for retail shelves, the report claims that both of these phones sport a larger 3.95 inches diagonal display. Reportedly, Apple will not just increase the size of the screen but maintain the current resolution. Instead, more pixels will be added which makes the new resolution of 640 x 1136 which is very close to a 16:9 screen ratio.

Allegedly, Apple is also performing several tests that will take full advantage of the additional pixels. The Cupertino company is in the process of testing iOS 6 builds that are catered to the new iPhone's display. The builds include a modified home screen that displays a fifth row of icons and extended app user interfaces. Due to the additional pixels, Apple is said to achieve the sharpness of Retina Display on the new display.

Last week a rumor popped out that a 4-inch screen iPhone is set for production next month. Are you in favor of a larger screen iPhone? [via 9to5Mac]
