Report: New iPhone will have same screen size, LTE, new connector If iMore is correct, the next iPhone will be more of the same, with little in the way of innovation.
The iPhone 5 (or possibly just "new iPhone") will have a similar sized screen to current models, at 3.5-inches, while the market has moved towards larger screens, with some even getting as big as 5-inches.

In an effort to make the phone more powerful, the company is looking to "reduce the size of the traditional 30-pin dock connector to something closer akin to a micro-dock so there?d be more room inside for other components" says the site, which will be the most innovative addition to the device.

As expected, the phone will have 4G LTE compatibility and an upgraded processor, either the A5X or an even newer A6 quad-core chip.

The phone will be released in October alongside the launch of iOS 6.

This would be most unimpressive if this were accurate. 3.5 touchscreen in 2012 is awful.

Tomorrow it will be something else. I can see the micro dock, and LTE for now as a legit rumor.

iPhone 4S was just a mere upgrade from the iPhone 4... Don't think Apple would do the same again.

But even if they did, it'd still sell millions for whatever reason.

Strange...Has the distinct smell of mis-information??? If I had to guess what really is in the pipe I'd say a 4.2" screen with only a slightly larger footprint in width with even less in height and all Gorilla glass front. We'll see.
