Is Apple Gearing Up For A 4.3” iPhone 5S?

Will the iPhone 5S finally be the true innovation on an “S” model iPhone? Blasphemy! Apple has set themselves up on a pretty linear path when it comes to the launching of their iPhones. Every year somewhere between mid-summer and October they release their latest iteration in the line, starting with a whole number, such as the iPhone 5, then releasing the “S” iteration the next year, in this case being the iPhone 5S.

Now normally these “S” models offer only minor improvements over their predecessor, such as speed bumps for the CPU and minor adjustments to iOS. This year looked to be no different, until the rumors started floating around earlier this week about the delay for the iPhone 5S, due to Apple wanting to put 4.3” Displays on the device. Normally we don’t report on rumors without hard evidence, but the fact that Bloomberg felt it was worthy of being picked up intrigued us.

iPhone 5S, Made Possible By Samsung?

There are also talks that Apple is working with Samsung to get these new displays, but there is no concrete evidence that either of these rumors are true. Still, in the spirit of being geeks, we here at RepairLabs thought it would be fun to work up a mock image of what a 4.3” iPhone5S would look like in comparison to the last iPhone model, the iPhone 5.

RepairLabs' Comparison iPhone 5S vs iPhone 5 Screen Size

One of the biggest complaints about the iPhone 5 was that, yes, they made the screen bigger, but the shape of the phone was just off. Some people loved it, but just as many disliked it. If Apple really is set on moving up to a 4.3” Display, their best bet would be to expand out at an angle, making the phone wider, and less oblong shaped.

Will The iPhone 5S Change The Repair Field?

Whether the resolution would increase or not, is still up for debate. With the iPhone line already boasting the extremely sharp Retina Displays, Apple may be able to get away from boosting up the pixel count, while still offering a beautiful display. Ideally they would offer us a true HD screen this time around, possibly at 720P or even 1080P, but that’s not likely to happen, and if it will, it will most likely be on the iPhone 6 that will undoubtedly be out next year.

With RepairLabs already boasting the wholly unique Ecto-Dynamic System for fixing the current screens used on the iPhone 5, it will be interesting from a repair standpoint to see if our system will still be viable on the new iPhone 5S screens.
