Apple to Release iPhone 5 with 4-inch Screen: Plans to Compete with Samsung Galaxy S III

A new report shows that Apple has plans to release a 4-inch screen iPhone 5 in order to compete with the latest smartphone from Samsung which is Samsung Galaxy S III. The said news report came about from Wall Street Journal and the news report revealed that the 4-inch screen which was a rumor before is already a "done deal". Apple refused to comment about this report and opted to remain silent regarding the details of their upcoming iPhone 5. Rumored Details and Specifications of iPhone 5 Aside from having a 4-inch screen for the iPhone 5, there are rumors that Apple's iPhone 5 would have the same 4G LTE features that the new iPad is utilizing as well as having NFC (Near-Field Communications) which makes mobile payment much easier. The processor for iPhone 5 would also be updated from A5 processor to A5 or A6 processor so that these rumored features would be supported. The release date for the new iPhone 5 is still unconfirmed as many people including experts are speculating that Apple's iPhone 5 will be released in the market before the year ends. This unsure release date was identified as one of the reasons for the decline in mobile market growth. This trend was shown by Gartner in its latest quarterly report. According to the report, 419.1 million cellphone units were sold during the first quarter of 2012 which shows a 2% decline (equivalent to 20 million units) if compared to the same period last year. Anshul Gupta from Gartner released a statement regarding this recent news report stating "We were not expecting a slowdown in Asia. China is usually a particularly big market in the first quarter, with the Chinese New Year normally leading to a sales boom, but this year consumers have held off upgrading, waiting for other high end devices, like the new Apple iPhone." Details about Samsung Galaxy S III The Samsung Galaxy S III will be officially launched in the market on May 30, 2012 and it is one of the most anticipated smartphone released in the market. Though the official release date of Samsung Galaxy S III will be on May 30, the official details and specifications of Samsung Galaxy S III have already been revealed to the public.
