Rumor: iPhone 5 Could Be Thinner and Wider

Though it is not clear when iPhone 5 will be released, we have been hearing all kinds of rumours about the phone and not a single day goes without an irrelevant rumors that pass by.

However, a little birdie revealed that the Appleā€™s iPhone 5 could be thinner and wider than iPhone 4. this is however based on the photos that were published on the Italian blog MacityNet. The photos revealed not the iPhone, but the purported iPhone 5 case. It may not be true that Apple is really considering increasing iPhone’s size from what it is right now.

However if one observes the trend in the Smartphone industry, most of them have been unveiling devices that are 4 inches or larger. iPhone 4 has a width of 3.5 inches and if the purported iPhone 5 cases are authentic, it could be quite possible that the iPhone 5 would be either 4 inches wide, or larger. This might make the iPhone a little too wide to be kept in the pocket, unless you wear over-sized clothes. However, if it turns out to be true, people may end up using iPhone 5 more often than iPad to consume content. The larger the screen, the easier it is to consume content and an iPhone 5 which has a width of more than 4 inches could cannibalize the iPad. Right now, the iPad is really popular with those who consume content.

Of course, that is an exaggeration, and even the exaggerations depend on obscure rumours from an Italian blog’s pictures of purported iPhone 5 case. The build-up of excitement before any new product launch is understandable, but Apple fans tend to go a little too further when it comes to getting excited about new Apple product launches. If you were wondering what it might be like when the iPhone 5 is finally launched, well, you will just have to wait to know.
