iPhone 5S Production May Be Delayed Due To Larger Display

The Apple iPhone 5S has been the subject of an increasing amount of speculation in recent weeks. There have been plenty of rumours about its potential specifications recently, which comes as little surprise given the fact that the iPhone 5 has now been on the market since September.

It has widely expected that the iPhone 5S will be announced at some point in the summer and hit the market in Q3. However, GSM Arena has recently reported on newly revealed information suggesting that there may be delays to the handset's production and release.

The website reports that the reason for this may be a change to the size of the phone’s touchscreen. Of course, Apple's previous 'S' models utilised the same design, size and touchscreen as their preceding models. However, it looks like this strategy may change with the iPhone 5S, as the website reports that the iPhone 5S may sport a 4.3 inch display, replacing the 4 inch touchscreen of the iPhone 5. The source of this information has claimed that this may lead to delays in the phone's production and release, meaning that it may not hit the market until Q4.

Of course, this is not the first rumour about the iPhone 5S, so the authenticity of this information cannot be confirmed, especially as the information does not come directly from Apple.

The iPhone 5S is also expected to sport an upgraded processor or camera, and is also rumoured to incorporate LTE-Advanced connectivity and even a fingerprint scanner. Additionally, the phone is also set to be launched in the standard black and white colour variants, but is also rumoured to be joined by several additional colour schemes, which would be a first for the iPhone series.

Much more information about the iPhone 5S is likely to be revealed in the coming weeks, as we approach its rumoured announcement. If any further information about the phone’s touchscreen or other features is revealed, we will be sure to keep you updated.
