Eventual 4.7" iPhone 6 primed for production in July, earlier than a 5.5" Apple phablet
posted by Daniel P. / Apr 09, 2014, 9:35 AM
JDI recently announced a new 5.5" Quad HD panel, and rumors spread that Apple will be using it for a larger iPhone, but the situation with Apple's eventual phablet is obviously still up in the air, depending on which analyst you ask.Last we heard, LG and Sharp were supposedly having issues producing the in-cell touch technology for a 5.5" diagonal, and the alleged third screen supplier - Japan Display (JDI) - reportedly isn't able to pick up the slack on its own.

So I figure they'll have four or better phones for sale then, continued 5s an c inventories then these in addition. Not including them still hawking the 4 an 4S, so out of five or six, two have new status, rest are footnotes. Getting to be a full universe of galaxies an iPhones.

Yea, I mean I'm looking forward what Apple has to offer from 2011 as well. They're probably going to have all sorts of new.....screen sizes....and fea....and hardw.....and camer...screen sizes....and watches.... But besides the jokes, it should help increase some competition in the size department and optimization of the best size.

I'm an avid iPhone / Apple supporter and I'm not super thrilled about this. Other than a change in size, iPhones have not changed since the first one came out. Hopefully iOS8 has something unique because at this point, there's nothing Apple has to offer that will make me trade in my 4S.

I'll be exited for this if it has a better camera and better customization

it will be the same design of 5S, but with larger screen and a little thinner. it will have slightly better screen, bigger battery, new a8 20nm chip, 2gb ram, slightly improved camera (maybe OIS an larger aperture) a8 should be enough to wipe the floor with S801, the bigger battery allied with new 20nm chip litography should be able to make it last the same or longer than android phones/phablets flagships. 5s camera already have the best videos (in 1080p) of any smartphone, so with the little improvements like OIS it should beat any other in the market too. lets hope for 4k recording. pictures taken with the 5s can compete with s5 so i expect something similiar, just a little bit better than the actual 5s and the screen will probably be the most ''correct'' in terms of color gamut, and delta gryscale, will propably beat any other LCD in the market too like someone i the coments said, for the first time i am excited about an iphone

Why is it so hard for Apple to make a phone with a bigger screen? When they finally got around to 4 inches a billion years after everyone else, the blogosphere acted like they invented warp drive.
