    It certainly looks like the 5-inch smartphone is moving closer to becoming a mainstream staple, rather than just a flash-in-the-pan trend. Following the excellent success of such devices as the Galaxy Note series and the new HTC Droid DNA (Butterfly), there is industry inel that at least five companies plan to offer a 1080p smartphone next year. The word is that sometime within the first six months of 2013 we will see 1080p devices from Samsung, Sony, LG, Huawei, and ZTE. It is certainly possible that these devices will not be 5-inches in size; however, going much smaller than that with a 1080p resolution would start to make the phone's display unreadable to most folks, making a 4.8-inch or larger highly likely. Here's a full quote with a few more details,

    Keep in mind that the source of this info, DigiTimes, is infamous for getting things wrong from time to time. Still, they also get things right pretty often too, so it's worth filing in the back of your mind.

    Last year, the general consensus about phone size was that 4-inches was the sweet spot for devices. Could 5-inches become the new norm next year? Share your opinion.
