iPhone 5 rumors: El Cinco Rides Again!

Marketplace Staff Mar 22, 2012

It’s not such a bad thing, I guess, that the new iPhone was called the 4S instead of the 5. Because eventually something is going to have to be the iPhone 5 and it gives us a chance to use our favorite nickname: EL CINCO!

Fresh brace of rumors coming to town this morning indicate that El Cinco will be huge, not just figuratively but literally, rocking a 4.6 inch retina display screen. That’s compared to the 3.5 inch screen that the 4S has. At that point, El Cinco has a screen comparable in size to many popular Android phones but its rocking that retina display, which is just dazzling compared to anything on the market now.

Reuters reports the rumor, citing South Korean reports.
