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.
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).
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?
