This is what a 4.8 inch Apple iPhone Math might look like

0. phoneArena 22 Jan 2013, 22:00 posted on

On Monday, it was believed that an Apple iPhone with a 4.8 inch screen would be introduced in June at the same time that the 7th-generation Apple iPhone would be unveiled as the Apple iPhone 5S; but that was Monday and the latest rumor has two 4 inch models coming this year, and a larger screened model not coming until 2014 or beyond...

And u know all this based on an obvious mockup of a phone that has yet to even b announced. U even put a lot of thought into, cuz actually your comment isn't a typical dumb iOS bashing comment. It is however unfounded at this time.

Apple wants to sell this thing, not give it away. It will look nothing like that... Apple doesn't make ugly products. The phone will b re envisioned.

Bigger doesnt mean better! The only thing i like about apple's phones is the fact that the have a small but perfect screen, now that it appears apple is also doing it big i'll just have to stick with my S2.

They need two models, with 4 and 5 inch screens and big square live tiles on the big one.

Must utilize a new dock connect too I'd guess, all that extra real estate might as well make plug smaller or something.

Apple, leading from behind.

Perhaps under Scott Forstall it would have looked like that. He no longer works at Apple though. Jony Ive is now at the helm of iOS. I'm not sure how much he can change iOS given the time frame for the next iPhone. We'll just have to wait and see.

A bigger version of the same boring phone will probably still sell...there's a sucker born every minute...in America.

well, it is sad when a phone is outdated and people think it is the greatest thing since the invention of the wheel....only in America

I'm more inclined to believe that they will go with a 4.5 inch next, they aren't too picky about trends, as currently the standard is pretty much 4.3 inches but they went with 4 inches, and at 4.5 inches, a 720p would set it perfectly at a pixel density of 326 ppi, so a "Retina Display".

What a bunch of silliness. They just rendered in an extra row of icons that added some height. Wow.

For me it's okay that the iPhone's size is 4" if it's UI is redesigned to compete with other OS

It looks positively idiotic. In twenty years, we'll have a five foot long iPhone that's still considered "portable"... Oh, wait... No we won't! Apple is no longer ingenious enough to turn a profit. Bye-bye!
