Apple reportedly eyeing 5-inch screens

Written by Peter Scott



Baby iPad or beefed up iPod touch?


According to a Japanese Mac news site, Apple is talking to LCD suppliers about a new 5-inch Retina class display.

The rumoured resolution? Well it is 1600 by 960 or 1280 by 960 pixel, but it is unclear what device the display is actually for. We have been hearing persistent rumours about a possible iPad mini, even backed by a high ranking Samsung exec, but the baby iPad is expected to feature a 7.85-inch or 7.1-inch screen.

However, the 5-inch screen sounds a bit too small for a tablet and too large for a new iPhone, which still rocks a 3.5-inch screen and is expected to grow to 4.something inches in the next generation.

So what is the new 5-inch screen for then? Either Apple is really going small with its baby iPad, which we find very unlikely indeed, or it is destined for a new device, something like a revamped iPod touch, which would make a lot more sense.
