A recently released survey conducted by ChangeWave Research revealed that the demand for the still-unannounced iPhone 5 has reportedly reached unprecedented levels.

Basing on a survey conducted by the company fourteen percent are ‘very likely’ to acquire the upcoming iPhone 5 while seventeen percent were ‘somewhat likely’ to acquire the device. The survey involved 4.042 consumers in North America who were told to anticipate a bigger screen, better camera, 4G LTE network support, the iOS 6, and a price tag similar to the iPhone 4S.

The VP for research of ChangeWave, Paul Carton, revealed that the demand for iPhone 5 was reportedly higher compared to the previous models of the device.

In comparison to the still-unannounced iPhone 5, the iPhone 4S only had ten percent of the survey participants answering that it was ‘very likely’ that they would purchase the device while around 11.5 percent were ‘somewhat likely’ to purchase it during a survey conducted in October of last year.

The demand for the iPhone 5 was also higher compared to the demand of the Samsung Galaxy S3, which currently the most popular Android-powered smartphone in the market.

Carton added that smartphone sales are expected to increase by fall with Apple getting a significant share of the market. Samsung will likely follow Apple in terms of smartphone sales while the other device manufacturers may not experience a significant increase in the demand for their product offerings.

The survey results emerged even as reports have hinted that the Pegatron has already started to manufacture the iPhone 5. Digitimes has reported that the Shanghai facility of the China-based manufacturer has already started to churn out the next-generation iPhone basing on information from Taiwan-based industry sources.

It can be recalled that an earlier report has also hinted at the start of the production of the upcoming iPhone 5 although the name of the manufacturer was not revealed. The upcoming iPhone 5 is expected to feature a four-inch Retina display screen, which is bigger compared to the 3.5-inch screen size of the previous models of the device.

In addition to the iPhone 5, the next model of the iPad will reportedly be produced by the same manufacturer according to Digitimes.
