Rival Samsung has put an emphasis on larger screens with some of its smartphones, highlighting the difference in some of its Apple-targeted commercials for Galaxy devices.

Reuters is citing sources familiar with the situation in reporting that Apple has made the new orders from suppliers in South Korea and Japan. If Apple keeps the same dimensions for the next iPhone, the screen size change will provide 30 percent more viewing area.

LG Display Co Ltd, Sharp Corp and Japan Display Inc have already started production of the new screens for Apple, according to the reports.

The new iPhone may go into production as early as August.
