How big do you think will the iPhone 7's display be?

By now we've heard a lot of rumors about the upcoming iPhone 7, including tips that it may have a slimmer chassis, thanks to doing away with the oldie audio jack. This implies a pretty significant chassis redesign, as each and every smartphone we've seen so far has had the regular round jack. Would that redesign include enlarging the screen size too, though..?

It would be great if they fit a 5" screen in the same footprint as the 6S. Not that I would buy it, but still. The 7 Plus just needs to go to QHD. Not that I care that much about the resolution, but since it already renders at closer to QHD than FHD, it might as well have the resolution and get rid of the extra load.

Same, but at least reduce the bezels!

I think they will keep the same display size but they will increase the resolution for the iPhone 7 from 760p to 1080p. Furthermore, they will probably increase the resolution of the iPhone 7 Plus to 2K (2x1080).

I don't see the 2k happening though, but who knows maybe they upgrade at least the smallest model which is truly the one in need.

~4.8 inches with obscure non-standard resolution again.

5" is the ideal size, with thin bezels.

I can see people didn't read very well the question: it says how big do you think WILL IPhone 7's display be? Not SHOULD be? Lol is a prediction not a opinion of what you want but rather what do you think will happen!

what is the maina with thin phones? I think the best iphone design was the 5s, it felt like an ingot in your hands, very nice. I have an 6s plus but i am not nuts about the feel of it

I think they'll aim for 4.9 or 5.0

this question would be alot harder if they didnt have the "plus" bc they already have a plus and as long as the "plus" exists the regular iphone will never rise above 5'' otherwise the sales of the plus would drop immensely.

They've rehabilitated Steve Job's consciousness & it will now go back to a 3.5" screen so that people can once again enjoy the one-handed operation.
