Concept Video Shows What a 4.8-inch iPhone Might Look Like


A rumor from earlier this week claimed that Apple’s working on an even larger iPhone, with a 4.8 inch screen, to compete with similarly sized Android devices.

While the rumor, sourced from a news daily in China, appears to have very little credibility with an absurd “iPhone Math” monicker (or probably a mistranslation for iPhone+) and no resolution specifics, it’s always good to see mockups of how such a device could look like.

The folks at Russian site have created a video that shows an iPhone (based on iPhone 5’s design) with a 4.8 inch display with 6 rows of icons on the home screen excluding the dock. It also shows the iPhone in multiple colors apart from black and white, as certain rumors have suggested.

If Apple does release a 4.8 inch iPhone alongside the existing 4-inch iPhone 5, would you jump ship? After all one of the main reasons people choose Android phones is the large screens.

    This time, it would certainly not become even longer.

    After Apple’s recent profit postings they will have to reinvent themselves. This concept plus a revamped iOS would help. People are losing interest in Appleproducts because of lack of evolving innovations and overkill of releasing new products every 6 months.

      Though I would like to see Apple launch an iPhone with a bigger screen and re-imagine the iOS, let’s not forget Apple sold more than 75 million iOS devices. That’s very impressive.

    Yes. I would definitely get the bigger iPhone

    Nope it’s the perfect size already

      Of course for many, but some of us want a bigger screen.

    I think 4 or 4.3 is the perfect size for a pocket phone. That is just my opinion. The only thing the iphone 5 needs is a wider screen. Also, I saw the size of the Nexus 4 and I really like it, but I just want to have a phone that is not heavy and that can be pocketable.
