Forced more by the demand for large screens similar to those on Samsung and HTC smartphones, Apple is now sourcing a larger screen for their next iPhone 5 which is expected to be unveiled in September.The new screen will replace the current 3.5 inch screen on the latest Apple iPhone 4S

The Wall Street Journal reports that  Apple is working with several screen makers on the new phone, including South Korea’s LG, Japan’s Sharp Corporation and Japan Display, which was created last month by three Japanese companies and the government.

Currently HTC with their new HTC One and Samsung with their Galaxy S smartphones are attracting sales because they offer a larger screen than Apple.

Analysts have projected that Samsung’s smartphone shipments will double this year and that the next iPhone will boost Apple’s shipments.

The new iPhone screens will measure 4 inches from corner to corner, one source said. That would represent a roughly 30 percent increase in viewing area, assuming Apple keeps other dimensions proportional. Apple has used a 3.5-inch screen since introducing the iPhone in 2007.
