We’ve recently asked ourselves, and you, whether the five-inch screen will slowly replace the good old standard of 4.3-inch size as far as smartphone displays are concerned. Android seems to be the platform driving the growth of screen sizes while Windows Phone and iOS are not supporting high resolutions which would justify a larger display.

According to sources familiar to the matter Nokia will not be entering the five-inch game mostly because the lack of aforementioned support in Windows Phone for Full HD resolutions. The Finnish phone maker might go as high as 4.7-inches this year, claim said sources, but five-inch-and-above is  something that is yet non-justifiable.

Chances are that other Windows Phone makers will stay below the five-inch threshold, at least until higher resolutions will be added to Microsoft’s mobile platform which is currently only supporting WVGA (480 x 800), WXVGA (768 x 1280), and 720p (720 x 1280). One more reason why we are not likely to see a Windows Phone phablet any time soon.
