4-inch iPhone screens coming soon?

The new iPhone that will be released this year will likely have a screen that will measure 4 inches diagonally compared to the 3.5 inches than the current iPhone 4S has. Production by Asian suppliers is set to begin in June but Apple has refused to comment. Sources quoted by The Wallstreet Journal said Apple is working with South Korea’s LG Display Co, Japan’s Sharp Corp and Japan Display Inc. It has kept the iPhone’s 3.5-inch screen since its launch in 2007. Apple’s main competitor, Samsung, sells a more diverse variety of phones. Market research firm Strategy Analytics said Samsung has grabbed 30.6% of the global market in the first quarter of 2012, besting Apple’s 24.1% share. Both companies account for more than half of the world’s smartphones.
