| by Aaron Almeida |
The year's most hotly anticipated smartphones have been the Galaxy S III, the flagship handset from Samsung and the upcoming iPhone, the highly anticipated refresh to the iPhone 4S. One of the two handsets has already been announced with the Samsung Galaxy S III expected to hit shelves in India on the last day of this month. The other much awaited smartphone, the next iPhone aka iPhone 5 is yet to be announced and as of yet, it is anybody’s guess as to when the launch date is scheduled for. However, shortly after the iPhone 4S was unveiled; rumours about the next iPhone began to gain momentum. The latest bit of information regarding the upcoming iPhone comes from Bloomberg, where they claim that Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple has worked closely on the design of the smartphone.

As per the report by the publication, “Apple, based in Cupertino, California, has placed orders from suppliers in Asia for screens that are bigger than the 3.5- inch size now on the smartphone, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs had worked closely on the redesigned phone before his death in October, one person said.” The report goes on to add, “The design change will be Apple’s first for the iPhone since 2010, when it introduced the iPhone 4. Electronics makers, led by Samsung, are moving toward bigger screens, as consumers use handheld devices for a broader array of tasks, including watching video, playing games and browsing the Web.”
