The iPhone X launched earlier this month, but the rumor mill (and, sometimes, the renders created as byproducts of that cycle) refuse to give up on what’s next.
Thanks to designer Martin Hajek, we’ve got a look at what Apple’s next big thing could look like. Specifically, another iPhone X-based design, but this time with an even bigger design. Expectations are that what we see in the iPhone X right now, with its minimized bezels, all-screen design and the “notch,” are sticking around for the foreseeable future. As a result, whatever new phone Apple launches is believed to share the design cues.
Hajek’s envisioned a smartphone with a giant 6.7-inch OLED display, which is almost a full inch bigger than what the current iPhone X offers with its 5.8-inch display. Based on what the iPhone X offers in size comparisons, a device with a display measuring in at 6.7 inches would likely have a footprint similar to the iPhone 8 Plus.
That all-screen design, with such a big display, would certainly be captivating to look at. Especially with the OLED panel that Apple crafted (and Samsung manufactured), which will surely get even better next year.
This isn’t the first time that the iPhone X Plus has been envisioned in rendered form. We’ve seen one with a 6.4-inch display, for instance. A recent report indicated that Apple is indeed planning on launching a pair of new iPhones with similar designs as the iPhone X, so it’s certainly possible that we see the current iPhone X become the “small” variant, while an even larger smartphone gets introduced to cater to the folks who want that sort of thing.
