Pictures allegedly show parts for the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 6
Samsung GALAXY Note II. With its 5.5 inch screen, the Samsung GALAXY Note II has proven to be quite successful and the next version of the device is said to have a 6.3 inch display.
The rumor that has spread from water cooler to water cooler has Apple launching the next version of the iPhone sometime between March and July of this year, with a second device getting released near the end of 2013. One rumor that has been hard to kill is the one that calls for a low-priced version of the Apple iPhone, with a smaller screen and polycarbonate shell, to be released in emerging markets.

I'd rather get a chinese knock-off iPhone, at least it has Android on it... iOS is so 5 years ago.

Wait iPhone 5S or 6? What is going on? Apple is so hurry or feeling the heat from market competition. So given birth to a new rumor propaganda. Apple must admit now its the end of success story. RIP apple, RIP Steve Jobs.

Voyeurism can be offence in that case. And ya we aren't interested in postmortem either.

How is seeing a few parts calling it naked?
17. joaolx (Posts: 364; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
Many people dont care about it, like me, but it's just for the fact that it means that a new iphone is coming out and we do get more details about it.

Creating the hype I see... Can I say... FAKE!!!

Haha, watching Apple bend to Samsung/Android's game is so cute.
"7inch tablets are fail"
"Oh no, 7 inch tablets are successful!"
Make iPad Mini
"3.5 inch is the perfect screen size"
"Oh no, people are lovin the S3 because of it's huge screen!"
Make 4 inch screen iPhone.
and most likely later this year...
"The phablet category is a failure"
"What? the Notes are a top seller?!"
Make iPhone Math
8. darkkjedii (Posts: 13803; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
The note 2's not a top seller, and yes I have one. 5 million sold world wide since its release isn't top selling...sorry
14. joaolx (Posts: 364; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
Who said they are? And why would they be? Even if they rumours are true it doesn't mean s**t. They are giving us choice and tim cook said that they should be worried about canibalization and seeing the success of the iPad mini it might be another successful device.
23. darkkjedii (Posts: 13803; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Apple is simply making the changes they feel they need to make as a company to stay competitive n the fast changing tech landscape amiaq. I'm not trying to start a flame war so lets stay mature please. Google has thru it's parters Samsung moto Htc, etc produced an awesome sales model of choice. They have changed the landscape and apple now sees that sales model is the way to go. Y not give us more choice right? Android users have said this for years about apple that apple should give more choice to its fan base. Now that they r they're getting blasted for it. Apple can't win, so what they should do is focus on what the consumer wants, and that's more to choose from. I see nothing wrong with taking a page from androids book, hey android is an awesome platform, and the versatility of the handsets and screen sizes is great to choose from look at it this way. Two car lots one sells only Bentleys, the other Bentleys camarys corvettes and Hondas. Which lots will sell more. Car lot 2 will. This isn't about apple copying, as its more about apple taking notice that change is necessary. I applaud them for slowly coming down from their high horse, and listening to their users. I love my iPhone 5 but I'd love it more if it had a 4.8 screen... Looks like I just may get that. Choice is good, and kudos to android for paving the way.

Dark, can you do us one favor?
No offence, but can you stop using YOUR note II as a reference to everything Android?? So far i've been seeing you write "Written from my note II" and such...it sounds tremendously childish and irrelevant. You may be trying to make a point that you have an Android too, a good Android at that, but it sound very immature... I don't tell you i'm typing from my device do i??

Dang Nathan didn't realize I was doing that a lot lol I gotcha though. I'm typing this from my iPhone 5 JK.

I would never by a Bentley from a car lot that has a Honda and Camry setting next to it!
69. darkkjedii (Posts: 13803; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
You can't by a Bentley, but u can buy a Bentley.
72. threeline (Posts: 260; Member since: 11 Sep 2011)
You can't buy a Camary either, but you can buy a Camry! What a tool you are.
76. darkkjedii (Posts: 13803; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Misspelling the name of a car is one thing, using by in place of buy is a simple case of _________!
77. threeline (Posts: 260; Member since: 11 Sep 2011)
So what does using the letter "u" instead of the word "you" say about your intelligence? Stop correcting people's posts trying to come off like your smart when your actually confirming our suspicions of you being a tool. This my last post on this topic because its way off subject and when you argue with a fool its hard to tell who the fool is.
63. rusticguy (Posts: 2828; Member since: 11 Aug 2012)
Not just apple ... almost everyone is moving into that territory. So it is a top seller if one combines all the 5 and above phones/phablet or the 4.8 inch iPhad that's rumored to be coming :)
24. frydaexiii (Posts: 1260; Member since: 01 Dec 2011)
Yeah, as long as it's now a household name, it's pretty top seller to me.
44. darkkjedii (Posts: 13803; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
It's fast becoming a household name cuz not only is it a great device, but Sammy has learned to market their products by taking a page from apple. Remember the old droid commercials that only focused on specs, and never showed u what the device could do from a practicality standpoint. Well apples commercials were, and still r designed to show how practical the device can b n everyday life. This is what captures the mainstream consumers attention. And if the mainstream consumer isn't interested in your product it will never sell as well, i.e. the nexus 1. It never caught on with the general consumer base, only the tech sector which of course wayyy smaller. Samsung commercials show how useful the note can b n everyday life and that catches the base that matters most. The general consumer. This is y apple has always marketed their products to the general public and u never see apple commercials dwell on specs, the average consumer doesn't know quad core, linux, unix, ram, or internal storage from a hole n the wall. Sammy's learned from apple over the years n a number of areas, and now they're out innovating apple. Notice the note commercials don't mention specs, just useful features.

Considering it is a whole new subcategory of wireless device and many other manufacturers are jumping on board the phablet train, I would say it IS top selling in it's category and doing very well for a new genre. Wrong as usual lol
47. affandi (Posts: 85; Member since: 25 Jan 2013)
You are clearly an iSheep, looking at all your posts.. always negative about android and sooo positive about iPhone.
The note 2 sold 5 million units the first two months! and Samsung predicts it will sell around 20 million.. that's very good for a nische product, now go hide in that cave of yours.
48. darkkjedii (Posts: 13803; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Dude I couldn't care less what u think or have to say about me. And I will hide no where, I don't give a crap, is****, droider who cares Man U r as I am a friggin consumer. U walk n and buy android, I walk n and buy both android and iOS. At the end of the day who cares as long as it works for u. Respond to this how u wish, but just remember at the end of the day I don't care and no one else does either.
52. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4144; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
5 million is an old number now. That number was given in November, just two months after release. A month later in December, Samsung sold 1 million Note II's in South Korea alone. Now it's January and demand is still high for the Note II and GS3, so sales for the Note II are closer to 10 million. Granted, it's still nowhere near as high as the demand for the GS3 or iPhone, it's still a respectable number given the fact that nearly every Apple fan said the Note series would flop.
53. darkkjedii (Posts: 13803; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Not this apple fan. This one gives credit where credit is due. This apple fan also feels its time for apple to do what they're starting to do...step it up
55. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4144; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
I didn't say give credit, I said think it would flop. When the original Note came out, did you think it would be where it was right now? I sure didn't, and I wasn't even an Apple fan.
12. joaolx (Posts: 364; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
You are wrong about the ipad mini. It is not a 7 inch tablet. Its a 8 inch tablet and the form factor works way better but whatever.
The iphone 5 wasn't really made to compete with the s3. It still feels like a small device and for apple and many others it still is the perfect size.
And about the phablet category, where did you hear that?
Even if they said all those things, which they did except probably the phablet, it still doesn't mean they can't change products and still make them fit in the same category.
The 7 inch was said to be failure but apple adapted and was successful.
The 4inch screen on the iphone is still perfect for most hands.
Damn this website is full of fandroids on rage about apple for stupid reasons.
I tend to stay away from reading comments because of people like you.
As an android fan i feel sick and i just hope people dont see me like you are.
18. frydaexiii (Posts: 1260; Member since: 01 Dec 2011)
Yeah, 7.9 is totally not 7inches, my point is they made a smaller tablet because the smaller tablets posed a threat and it was popular, even after Steve Jobs himself said that 9.7 inch was the perfect size and anything else is doomed to fail. Apple has been well known to start markets, but recently, it just seems like their bending to the current market which Android OEMs set.
If it wasn't meant to compete then why increase it since 3.5 inch is the "ideal size" for one handed use? What all iPhone users hands just suddenly grew larger so they had to increase it?
The fact that Apple fans are making fake renders of XL iPhones just show that there's a demand for it. And following Apple's patterns of late, if there's a demand, they wouldn't even stop to question and just follow the trend.
42. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
I see so many errors in that logic
1. Apple talked about smaller tablets in general Samsung had already shipped a 8' device apple just saw how much android tablets have grown to nearly be the mayor tablet player
2. 7' was not successful Because Apple adapted it. Apple adapted it because it was successful. Also the iPad mini is not a pocketable ad the competition.
Apple is simply being overwhelmed by competition and they have simply run out of things to do anymore...
67. MrJerry (Posts: 399; Member since: 05 Oct 2012)
If that so they have watch their mouth and use the word like "adapt" or "accept" than "invent" or "perfect".
That disgusts people like me the most

"Oh no, 7 inch tablets are successful!" lets make a nexus 7 lol

OMG....... iPhone parts; this is the best story this weekend. Does anyone know what the new box will look like? Are they going to package the phone the same way as they've done in the past? What's the inside of the envelope where the documents are packaged going to look like, ANYONE know??
My favorite part of this very informative news piece is the rendering of the new "iPhone mYth".... ♡ it!!
7. darkkjedii (Posts: 13803; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Can't wait for these phones to drop. Looking forward to seeing what Apple unveils. Let the red thumbs begin.

Oh Apple, since you are red, I'm here to collect 50 red thumbs on this post just to show how much I loved you :)

Cant wait, apple is going to demolish android/bb/wp8 with 5s/6 running io7....
35. 9thWonderful (Posts: 232; Member since: 24 Jan 2013)
Don't know about demolish...but I thank android for putting pressure on the rest to reinvent what they put out & increase the level frequent releases. A 4.8" iPhone would be right up my alley as well as NFC. These are two key features that I miss in my iPhone now.
34. oister85 (Posts: 417; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)
If apple realease 4.8 screen !houston we have a problem it
Might sale like never before. It would take alot market share from android
36. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
Lol To those who said the phablet market was dead XD
39. networkdood (Posts: 6329; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
It is amazing and pathetic at how some people really idolize APPLE.
