I kind of like these. I think this is where Apple is going with the next iPhone: keep the overall size of the device as close to the actual iPhone 5 while increasing the screen size.
Apple must do this. Apple has to do that. Apple should do this. Well, shut the fuck up guys you don’t even know what you are talking about.
This piece is more like “I wish the next iPhone will have this and that, so let’s try to use my job as a tech journalist to put pressure on Apple and look bright while doing so”. Moron.
Consider putting this rumour in the “unlikely” bucket.
It seems that the iPhone 6 main selling points could be all about the screen.
First, make it bigger. Say 5”. Second, make it highly resistant. Say with sapphire. Third, make it super high res. say like 2x current retina displays. Give it a name: Super Retina.
Make the device look smaller than current crops of similar 5” devices by minimizing bezels. Take advantage of the spacious inner space and maximize the battery. Forget about one hand operations as people who will be buying this device won’t care too much about this. Sell this puppy with one of these tag line:
"When bigger doesn’t mean too big. Here is the iPhone 6".
“For those who want it bigger. Here is the iPhone 6”.
“For those who want it all. The new iPhone 6”.
This could be one of the most convincing argument for a larger screen iPhone this year.
Interesting piece from 9to5mac.com on the bigger screen iPhone. I think they will go with an upped screen resolution in order to show more content. Better value for the customers. Harder to sell for the developers. iOS 7 AutoLayout should help a lot for those using this iOS feature.
If the statement reported by BGR is true about the 2014 iPhone aka the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 5S, don’t expect the latter to have fingerprint scanner in it. This will be one of the killer feature of next year iPhone beside a larger display.
If Apple wants to do a 4.8” screen iPhone, it will have to seriously consider doing an edge-to-edge screen device like the one illustrated here.
Mockup by Lorenzo Orlandi
The past week there has been rumors about the iPhone 5S coming in an array of color and more than one screen size. This could mean just 3.5” and 4”, the sizes that have been available previously.
But more interestingly it could be a new, larger size.
I wonder what would be the perceived screen quality @ 264 DPI with a 4.9” display…
So true about how Apple can use a point of view to justify something now and throw it away on the next iterative design decisions.
