Reportedly, Hitachi and Sony Mobile had begun sending a screen larger than 4 inches to Apple to get used to the new IOS. There is the possibility of such devices will be present next year.
As is known, the iPhone 4S which is the latest generation of the iPhone 4 did not make many changes physically, or both use a 3.5-inch screen. Apparently the screen with a size of more than 4 inches are being prepared for the iPhone 5.
Meanwhile, the iPad 3 is also reportedly ready to slide in 2012. Reportedly again Hitachi and Sony Mobile has designed a liquid crystal display (LCD) for the iPad 3.
