In the wake of the launch of Apple’s latest iOS, it seems like there are new sources that have informed Reuters that Apple is looking into producing an iPhone with a 4.7-inch screen as well as a Galaxy Note competitor device with a 5.7-inch screen. Reuters has also been informed by its source that Apple is looking to introduce a cheaper, $99 (We’re pretty sure that’s US on contract price) model in a wide range of colours.

The media outlet also added that these moves are still under discussion, but they show that Apple is trying to regain marketshare from its arch-nemesis, Samsung, which has been smashing the market lately with its flagship 5-inch Galaxy S4 and 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II device alongside a range of inexpensive devices for emerging markets – all types of devices that Apple doesn’t make.

It’s still unclear whether Apple will actually go ahead with its plans, but it will definitely be a big change for the company’s mobile lineup, especially since the late Jobs’ claims that “3.5-inch is the perfect size”. If these do go ahead, don’t expect the devices until at least 2014.
