Apple is equipping the next iPhone with a larger screen after Samsung Electronics unveiled its latest Galaxy smartphone with a 4.8-inch touch-screen.

Sources have told Reuters that the panels for the new iPhone will be 4 inches corner to corner -- 30 percent bigger than current iPhones.

The iPhone screens will also be thinner than previous versions with the use of so-called in-cell panels. The new technology embeds touch sensors into the liquid crystal display, eliminating the touchscreen layer found in current iPhones.

Japan's Sharp also said earlier this month it would start shipping screens destined for a new iPhone in August.
