iPhone 5 specs to see 4-inch 720p display included

Rumoured iPhone addition to get larger screen

Next-generation iPhone 5 to land later this year sporting a new 4-inch 720p display?

The next addition to Apple’s line-up of market leading handsets, the iPhone 5, is to boast a 4-inch 720p Toshiba display, latest reports have suggested.

Adding to further fuel to the fire, the retailer announced the Apple's next generation handset, which they pegged with a November 21st release, would "be pretty much the same as the iPhone 4 with new software. The software is the main difference with the iPhone 5."

A November release would add velocity to the spate of rumours suggesting that the iPhone 5 will be unveiled in September 2011, doing away with Apple’s previously rigid annual summer release schedule.

With rumours previously suggesting Apple has invested in a Toshiba-owned manufacturing facility in order to churn out retina displays and avoid component shortages, news that the screen producer will be showcasing a 4-inch 720p offering at the upcoming Society for Information Display conference 2011 has sparked reports of an iPhone 5 display overhaul.

Whilst earlier iPhone 5 rumours have suggested the mooted handset will sport an enlarged 4-inch display, these reports have been widely refuted as it is widely believed the next-gen handset will feature largely the same form factor as the current iPhone 4.

Apple’s stringent annual product cycles also look set to be called into question with the iPhone 5 as the usual summer arriving handsets have been repeatedly touted as making way for a September announcement with retailer Phones4u yesterday informing us at T3.com that the eagerly awaited smartphone will not arrive until November 21st.

What features would you like to see land on the upcoming iPhone 5, is a 4-inch 720p near the top of that list? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
