New report claims Apple will launch 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch iPhones this year


A new report from Chinese publication C Technology claims that Apple will launch the iPhone 6 in two sizes, 4.7 inch and 5.7 inch.

The information comes from an unnamed Foxconn executive, who says that Apple will make a “one-time exception” by releasing two iPhones with different sizes. The report notes that there could be a slight deviation in screen size.

Till now, reports have suggested the iPhone 6 could come in one (or two) of these sizes: 4.7 inch, 5.5 inch, 5.7 inch and even a whooping 6-inch. A report from Japan has also claimed that the larger iPhone could have a 1080p screen, but it is unclear how Apple would handle the transition to the new resolution.

An iPhone with a bigger screen has been one of the most requested feature, and it looks like the next iPhone will finally be coming with a display larger than 4-inches. That said, we expect Apple to continue offering a 4-inch iPhone variant as well, since a number of people prefer the current size.

Do you want an iPhone with a larger screen? What do you think would be the perfect size for the iPhone?

    Ive had small and big phones and i love the option. Glad Apple is getting out of the one size fits all mentality. I also think 32 gig should be the standard

    Im happy with iphone 5 screen size, I don’t want a tablet I want a phone

      Luckily you’re getting both!

    Depends. I almost got an HTC One, but ended up going with my original choice the iPhone 5. For me, the HTC one is the perfect size and that is a 4.7″ SCREEN. I’d like the next iPhone to be the same size as the HTC One, but if they could do an edge to edge screen, then they could fit more screen into the same size device which obviously would be great. Without an edge to edge screen, I think 4.7″ would be good too. Even though its only .7″ more, the HTC One still feels significantly larger, while still feeling like a phone and not a mini tablet/phablet whateva u wanna call it.

    While I am perfectly happy with my 5s screen size, I do think Apple is missing the boat (and a LOT of sales) by not at least giving buyers the option of a larger screen. That’s clearly a HUGE “want” for MANY, so why not let them choose.

  • Patrick

    4.7 would be awesome…anything over that would be overkill.

    Isn’t that galaxy s4?

    • Gautam

      I was under the impression that Galaxy S4 was made of plastic.

  • Lisa

    6 inch would be fantastic. I switched from iPhone5 to Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and absolutely love it’s big screen.

  • ManwellC

    Re: 5.7. Bye bye Android if this is true.. Using a 6.4 Sony Currently.

  • Lisa

    Yes I definitely want an iPhone with a bigger screen or my next upgrade will be a samsung.

  • Roblox

    I like 4 inch display just fine but I just want to have the ability to put a sd card in my freakin phone!! Apple is loosing a lot of sales because of this!

  • Guest
