That gold-tone iPhone 5 of yours is about to lose its luster — the tech press is chock-full of headlines this morning pointing to a September 9 debut of the next iPhone.
Both Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal — which have impressive Apple-prediction records — cite persons familiar with the matter who say Apple will announce two iPhones with larger screens at the event.
The iPhone 5s screen measures in, diagonally, at 4 inches. The Cupertino company's next round of phones are expected to sport 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens.
Of course, none of this should come at too much a surprise. Bloomberg says Apple is simply remaining true to form, with a predictable early- to mid-September iPhone announcement.
And a writer for The Washington Post reminds us Samsung's been making gains in the smartphone market for a few years now, thanks to larger-screen phones. It's likely Apple wants to up the ante and increase sales in foreign markets where larger phones are highly popular.
Aside from a larger screen, what else can be expected from the new iPhone?
