So it looks like the next iPhone will feature a longer screen. With all these convenient leaks — on the launch day of the Samsung Galaxy S III — it’s got to be true, right?
When I first caught glimpse of these rumors, I couldn’t believe it. A longer screen? It makes ergonomic sense, but I couldn’t picture how it would look like without being ridiculous.
After looking at these newly leaked screens, it doesn’t look so bad. By keeping the width of the phone in check I’m almost convinced that this is the correct move for Apple. It will keep it a one handed friendly phone which isn’t something all those 4″+ phones could pull off.
I’m considering the upgrade to a bonafide smartphone, but I haven’t made the decision on which phone yet.
