Apple iPhone 5 is Real, Project Abandoned Ahead of iPhone 4S Launch
I’ve heard this theory before, but now it’s back with extra info… it appears that Steve Jobs wasn’t actually involved with the iPhone 4S project too much, focusing on the iPhone 5 instead. Apparently, there was also a prototype going round before the new iPhone debuted, but in the end it got canned.
Supposedly, this iPhone 5 fit all the speculations and rumors regarding its shape, size and features. Thus, we’re dealing with a teardrop shaped smartphone, with tapered edges and bigger display. Rumors say that the project was killed by Steve Jobs, who didn’t want to fragment the iPhone series with a new screen size and chose the traditional path.
Does this mean that Apple will never release a bigger screen iPhone? Well, considering some companies in China ordered tens of thousands of cases for a 4 inch iPhone, they’d better release that bigger Apple phone, else it would be a waste. The public is demanding innovation and I think there’s no way around a bigger display this time. What do you think?
