The wait for the iPhone 5 just seems to keep getting longer and more painful doesn’t it? Before Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) announced iPhone 4S, many of us thought that the Cupertino based tech giants would launch an iPhone 5 carrying a 4-inch screen.
Unfortunately it did not happen, and the consumers were presented with a Siri-incorporated iPhone labelled as 4s. Once again, we have been hit by a wave of reports and rumors that details a more exciting story. This time, an unverified source claims that, “Apple has decided on the bigger 4.6-inch display for its next iPhone and started placing orders to its suppliers”.

The major screen manufacturers of Apple Inc. has declined to comment on this report.
There are also other rumors and reports that suggest iPhone 5 might come with the same 4G LTE technology that is included in the new iPad. Unfortunately, the rumor further states that the LTE-equipped iPhone like the LTE-iPad might face problems with the roaming. The problems are reported to arise due to the difference in frequency bands in the regions (Read more about frequency/roaming issues here).
