(Newser) – A fresh new rumor declares an iPhone 5 launch this summer with a screen enlarged to at least 4 inches (compared to 3.5 inches on the iPhone 4S). Prototypes of the iPhone 5 are apparently "floating around," claims the Apple-centric blog 9to5Mac, which is getting its info from a "reliable source at Foxconn in China."

The prototype samples being tested have a "longer/wider" appearance than the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, according to 9to5Mac, but none of them sport a teardrop form, a rumor previously attached to the 4S that turned out to be false. If it does hit stores this summer, the iPhone 5 will be the first version released in less than a year of a previous generation, notes CNET, which rounds up other production rumors.
