Rumor Mill Churns Up "iPhone Math" Model

iPhone Math? Yeah, right.The latest iPhone rumor to rear its head claims Apple is prepping to release a new model dubbed "iPhone Math" sometime in 2013. The Math model will allegedly have a bigger screen, falling in the awkward size range between the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, along with an awkward and very un-Apple like name.

The iPhone Math will sport a 4.8-inch display, according to supply chain sources talking with China Times, and will also include an 8 megapixel camera. They also claimed the smartphone will be built by Foxconn, which is far less of a reach than a 4.8-inch screen iPhone model called Math.

The sources also claimed the iPhone 5S is coming and that it will stick with the iPhone 5's 4-inch display and that both models will be available by the end of June. As if that isn't enough to keep Apple busy, the company apparently has a third iPhone with a 12 megapixel camera scheduled for the Christmas buying season.

While an iPhone 5 replacement -- regardless of whether or not how soon it ships -- is a safe bet, the iPhone Math seems like a stretch even for the always fervent Apple rumor mill. It does, however, show there's so much interest in what Apple has planned next that nearly anything can be tossed out as the next big iPhone rumor.
