    Apple to launch 5-inch iPhone in 2017.JPG

    9to5 Mac reports today on a new rumour from Japanese Apple website MacOtakara that claims that Apple is planning to launch a new 5-inch iPhone this year. This supports other recent similar rumours, including one in particular from sources in Taiwan at the end of December that said that the new 5-inch iPhone would have a vertical dual camera design, and be identical as far as specifications go to the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus that Apple is also said to be releasing.

    However, if true, this would mean that Apple could be planning to release four iPhone models this year, as it is already expected to be releasing a high-end OLED device as well as the aforementioned iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus refreshes. This contradicts many recent rumours that Apple would be releasing just three models this year.

    MacOtakara’s information also bucks another recent trend in iPhone 8 rumours by saying that not all of the new line-up will have wireless charging capabilities, and that in fact, only the top-of-the-range OLED model will support that feature. The sources also say that even with the high-end model, the wireless charging will not be included as standard and will have to be purchased separately.

    Four models in one year, looks like we're in for a treat in 2017. It looks like they're trying to cater to all price points too which is a new approach for them.
