New rumor supports iPhone 5 featuring 4 inch screen display via people familiar with the situation from WSJ

iPhone 5
The long anticipated Apple iPhone 5 has been discussed quite a lot. It’s for sure that all of people would like to expect a more wonderful new iPhone in all aspects, like larger screen display, higher screen resolution, more practical functions, better battery performance, etc. The latest report from WSJ cited that orders for new 4-inch-plus displays for the iPhone 5 will only commence in June, further suggesting a fall release.

The report, filed by Lorainne Luk and Juno Osawa, further support the wide-held belief that the new iPhone will feature a screen size increase somewhere in the 4-inch range, which means it would be more enjoyable for owners to watch HD videos on iPhone 5. This may not come as big news to those who have been following iPhone 5 rumors for the past year or so, but the WSJ article’s claims regarding the production and order schedule for the iPhone 5’s new display is noteworthy:

Production is set to begin next month for the screens, which measure at least 4 inches diagonally compared with 3.5 inches on the iPhone 4S, the latest phone from Apple, the people said.

The slogan for this year’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference, the event that Apple used to announce previous iPhone iterations up until last year, is “It’s the Week We’ve all Been Waiting For.” With the WSJ now asserting that iPhone 5 production has yet to officially begin, and a report from earlier in the week claiming that, according to the Foxconn CEO, the iTV will not see production commence until later in the year, it remains to be seen what Apple will release at this year’s WWDC that will live up to its own slogan.

iOS 6 and a new generation of MacBooks seems like a foregone conclusion, but it remains to be seen if these releases would “wow” Appledom to the level that would make WWDC week seem like “the week we’ve all been waiting for.”

Samsung Galaxy S lll to be released on May 23rd in Europe with amazing features


I once wrote a post which indicated that Samsung Galaxy S III would be released in May. And now, it’s time to prove what I wrote turns to be true. After all of rumors and speculations, we finally get official release news of Galaxy S III. It’s been confirmed officially that the Galaxy S III will go on sale in Europe on May 23, yet still no official word on a U.S. launch, but it could come this summer.

The Galaxy S III comes with amazing phone features for all fans and smartphone users. The S III packs a 1.4GHz quad-core chip, as the company indicated last week. Samsung obviously believes that kind of horsepower is necessary to drive a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display with 1,280 x 720 resolution, which makes it a perfect choice for you to freely watch HD movies on Galaxy S III on the go.

Samsung Galaxy S III (European variant) with Exynos 4 Quad highlights:

1. Full-speed video: Uses HD 30 frame per second video hardware codec engine for 1080p video recording and play-back. Also includes an embedded image signal processor interface for a high-quality camera and an HDMI 1.4 interface.
2. Speed jump: Owing to its 32-nanometer tech, the Exynos 4 Quad has "two times the processing capability over the 45-[nanometer] process based Exynos dual-core while consuming 20-percent less power," Samsung said.
3. Ready to plug into new phones: Exynos 4 Quad is "pin-to-pin compatible" with the Exynos 4 Dual, allowing smartphone and tablet suppliers to adopt the new solution without additional engineering or design efforts.
4. Based on ARM Cortex A9 design: Based on the current Cortex A9 tech from ARM. The latest and greatest ARM tech is called Cortex A15 but those chips won't emerge as commercial products for a while yet.

In terms of pricing in UK, the network will be selling the handset on a 24 month £34 contract with no upfront cost, it announced, which will come with 2,000 minutes, 5,000 Three-to-Three minutes, 5,000 texts and all-you-can-eat data.


Update: The sales date of Samsung Galaxy S III has been delayed to May 29th.
