There’s good news for those who want a bigger iPhone: an unconfirmed report coming out of Asia indicates that the company is working on a smartphone with a 4.8-inch screen.

Apple iPhone mini -- Artists ConceptThis apparently won’t be the replacement for the iPhone 5, however. Apple is supposedly working on three handsets to be released this year, in a range of sizes.

One of these will be the iPhone 5S, an updated version of Apple’s current model with a 4-inch display. Earlier unconfirmed reports have indicated that this device will have a faster processor and a fingerprint scanner.

The second will be code-named “iPhone Math” and will allegedly have a 4.8-inch screen. Apple is apparently creating this to go head-to-head with the top-selling Android-based smartphones, which have screens close to 5-inches in size.

Both of these Apple devices will reportedly be out in June. They will be followed late in the year with a third smartphone. Not much is known about this model at this time, but it will supposedly have a 12 megapixel camera, the highest of any Apple handset.
