The Wall Street Journal is the powerhouse of tech reporting today, firstly talking about Google selling Android 5.0 "Jelly Bean" devices directly to customers, and are now reporting that Apple's next-generation iPhone would sport a bigger screen.

The new screen, according to "people familiar with the matter" will measure at least 4-inches diagonally. This is compared to the 3.5-inch iPhone which every iPhone has been since the original. Production is rumored to begin next month, with analysts pegging the new iPhone to be released in the fall. As usual, Apple have declined to comment.

 

The people familiar with the matter, who I really want to meet one day, have said that Apple are working with multiple screen makers on the new iPhone. These screen makers include LG Display Co., Sharp Corp. and Japan Display Inc., which was only created last month by three Japanese companies and the government. Apple is facing much more competition from Samsung, the world's biggest cellphone maker, who just unveiled their GALAXY S III which features a 4.8-inch display.
