The Wall Street Journal claims that Apple will be launching a 4.5-inch and a 5-inch display iPhone this year due to mounting competition from flagship, big-screen Android handsets.
The publication also states that according to its sources, both handsets will sport a metal casing and that the iPhone 5C, launched this September, will be discontinued.
The iPhone is now the only flagship smartphone on the market with a sub 4.5-inch screen. Samsung’s Galaxy SIV boasts a 5-inch full HD display, as does Sony’s Xperia Z1 while LG’s most premium of premium handsets, the G2, offers 0.2-inches more. In fact, the screen’s so large that the company has resorted to putting buttons on the phone’s back plate to make one-handed use easier.
