Rumor: Apple May Launch New Device With 5-Inch Retina Display in 2013

Japanese blog – Macotakara reports that according to their reliable source, Apple is working on a 5-inch device with Retina Display that will be launched in 2013.

Macotakara reports:

According to reliable Chinese source, LCD supplior of Apple seems to be developing 5-inch Retina Display.

The product which has 5-inch Retina Display is expected to be released in 2013, and resolution of this LCD will be 1,600 x 960 pixel (800 x 480 by legacy majour) or 1,280 x 960 pixel (640 x 480).

We’ve heard several rumors about Apple working on a 7.85-inch iPad mini and a 4-inch iPhone so far, but this is the first time someone has claimed that Apple is working on 5-inch device.

If the device comes with a 1,600 x 960 pixel (800 x 480 by legacy majour) or 1,280 x 960 pixel (640 x 480) then it would mean that developers would have to design apps specially for it. We find it a little hard to believe that Apple would want to add another vector of fragmentation by launching a 5-inch device.

If this bizarre rumor turns out to be accurate then we wonder what Apple will call this new new device with 5-inch Retina Display. iPad mini? iPad nano? iPod touch something? Any guesses?

    Who cares. Samsung have already built it, called the Note, and is brilliant.

    What the freaking obsession with this one brand? Must be something to do with the religious nature of the USA.
