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?
