iPhone 5 Will Have A 4 Inch Screen And Unibody Case, Analyst Says

Brian J. White, analyst for Topeka Capital Markets, made another intriguing Apple prediction. Several days ago he made some waves as the first analyst to suggest that Apple's stocks will reach $1001.

Now, his predictions are focused on Apple's upcoming iPhone. The sixth generation handset will have significant design changes in addition to better connectivity, says the pundit.

"In our view, this will be the most significant iPhone upgrade with a four-inch screen and a new, sleek look that we believe will require a Unibody case. This new, sleek look will be the most important reason that consumers decide to upgrade," wrote Brian White in a note to investors.

Besides a redesigned body, the next iPhone is expected to feature 4G LTE connectivity. He based his report on information picked up on a tour of Apple's suppliers in Taiwan and China. White also suggested that the supply chain is preparing for the mass production of the next iPhone expected to start in June.

The official release of the new iPhone is supposed to happen sometime this fall. The rumour related to the iPhone launch in the third quarter is consistent with previous reports on this matter coming from Foxconn recruiters.
