Concept video shows what the rumored 5.5" and 4.7" iPhone 6 models could look like

Concept video shows what the rumored 5.5
The Concepts iPhone team is back at it, fleshing out the latest analyst forecast for the iPhone screen size in a video format. Korean securities firm KDB Daewoo Securities Research, recently issued a note to clients on the expected specs for the Apple iPhone 6 that is supposed to arrive in late summer/early fall this year.

The report says that the Apple iPhone 6 will be available in two sizes, one with a 4.7 inch to 4.8 inch screen, and the other with a 5.5 inch glass. The resolution on the displays will be 1080 x 1920 and 1280 x 2272 respectively. The glass will be made of indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) instead of the low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) employed on current iPhone models.

This setup would leave Apple with a three-pronged approach to screen sizes, as it will likely keep the current 4" iPhone 5s as a mid-range model, as usual. While a 5.5" iPhone "phablet" sounds rather fishy, Display Search analysis back in January reiterated that diagonal being in the cards for the iPhone, so Apple might at least be toying around with the idea. Here's what the Apple portfolio might look like this year, if the 4.7" and 5.5" iPhones indeed materialize, in a concept video designed by Enrico Penello and Ran Avni.

Yup I was becoming disgusted with the 5.5 until I realized once more its a concept.

I like how they finally get the whole "it will never look different" philosophy now. Everyone is waiting for a surprise new design but it will probably be the same thing with like a metal ring around the camera or something. Then there will be a video with Ive explaining how the metal ring around the camera makes it so much more refined and perfected. The iFans will then bring up the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" argument but will slowly die a bit on the inside. Then they will buy the slightly more gold version of the phone and then put a cover on it because they love the premium feel...but through a cover.

Yeh the apple fans are just hypnotized, if apple said jump they say how high. Lol but srsly I can't grasp an iPhone bigger then 4.2inches.

My expectation is for a 4.3" screen; I will get a new iPhone if it's 4.3" this coming Sept.

I have to agree with Steve Jobs that people like their phones to be "portable" and would use a tablet for web surfacing or laptop replacement activities. I carry my iPhone 5S and iPad Mini wifi edition with me and it's got a lot of real estate -- it takes about three (3) Samsung Note 3's to the display area of the Mini.

The bottom line is the iPhone isn't for every body. I had an android device for 2+ years and I am on the market for an android back-up phone.

Very nice story, you've just summarized the comments section for the upcoming iphone 6 and 6s, and I enjoyed reading yor comment, +1 for ou.

But seriously what can be changed with the design? front speaker? Then what more? In the end of the day all smartphones look pretty much the same and people like different things. They will change a few things but mostly from inside. Software can be better but the 3-4 year iphones need those updates too. If you don't like the iphone then buy android. People like different things. the last argument you did apply to many many android users too. Many wants a premium feel samsung because it does feel cheap. And it DOES feel premium even with a cover on.

Why the hell would the screen be curved like that?

Was wondering that too. One thing the latest iPhones have always had is the flat approach. They know how to pack in the hardware to keep it that way, a larger phone even more so.

Whoever made this up never think the 5.5" display with the curve glass looks extremely ugly from the side. I'm a fan of android and even I know Apple would never put up something that ugly...

they really need a bigger screen device...i had the iphone 5 and the 4" screen was way to small for my needs..they should also improve battery life on their phones and stop releasing beta software for consumers...my ipad 4 suffered a lot when ios7 was first released..lots of bugs,crashes,lag and so on...they only got ironed with ios7.0.4...such a pitty,people pay a lot of money for their products and expect the best experience but in the end they feel like theygot cheated..at least, in my case...

just my opinion but Apple needs to keep iPhone screens below 5". iOS just looks painfully awkward on such a large phone because there is nothing to take up space except, you guessed it, ICONS...smh.

I agree and I'm pretty sure Apple will as well, they won't release a larger device that gives up some of the ease of one hand use just because they can. It would be "rampant technology for technology's sake."

Unless of course they make use of the larger screen through software, the Note 3 does a better job at this than any other phablet on the market, and iOS STILL doesn't have widgets.

Just my opinion. But for a smartphone, 4.3 inch is the perfect size. When i need a bigger size, i will pick a tablet. iPad mini/Air would be great. Android or windows based tablet sounds good too. Oh, i don't like a phablet anyway.

Why don't u like phablets

Well, tablets offers me lots of fun than phablets could do.

Phablets aren't for everyone. Personally, i couldn't use a smartphone with a display under 5 inches.
Which is why I only considered the Note 3, HTC One Max, and the Lumia 1520 (went with the Note 3). I don't see the need for a tablet when i already have a phablet. But to each his/her own.

Uumm that was kind of a worthless video. What exactly did they add other than resizing an existing iPhone and slightly skewing the top bezel. I could make this in sketch in 5 seconds after downloading an already built current iPhone model. Can we only post concepts that actually bring something new to the table and aren't rescales of current stuff?
