Apple could attack the mobile market with a giant 4.8-inch iPhone

On January 22, 2013

If the latest rumors are true, the giant phone fever seems to also include Apple, the company preparing to launch a record-sized iPhone model.

According to sources close to the newspaper China Times, Apple could launch this year to 3 different iPhone models, one 4.8-inch screen size which places it somewhere halfway between smartphones range of conventional and compact tablet. In their launch calendar could be an iPhone equipped with a camera of 12 MP booked for later this year.

Now about the new iPhone 4.8-inch screen, we know only that it may come equipped with an 8 MP camera, built using Largan Precision lens Products – a leading provider of components for the Apple iPhone phone.

While new rumors should be treated with a vigorous dose of skepticism, we must not forget that the iPhone 5 model equipped with 4-inch screen and a mini iPad tablet with 7.9 inch screen is clear evidence confirming availability for Apple product diversification. Moreover, competition in the industry have already taken the initiative by launching models with screens at least as high, such as Samsung Galaxy S3 with 4.8-inch screen.

For now Apple representatives did not give any statement to confirm or refute the hypothesis of a 4.8-inch iPhone model.
