Is this the leaked 5.5 inch screen from the Apple iPhone phablet?

An LCD panel, allegedly belonging to the Apple iPhone phablet, has leaked. Measured at 14cm, the actual size works out to a tad over 5.5 inches. Unfortunately, there are no special markings that would prove that this is from the phone that would be the first iOS powered phablet. Keeping a cynical eye on the photo, and taking this with a grain of salt (after all, this could be a screen from anything), speculation has the phablet launching later this year, in short supply...

I can smell it around the corner. "APPLE SAYS you can't COPY OUR 5" SCREENS". Another lawsuit yet again and BANS the competition which is bad for the consumers.

As long as you and all the other teenagers who bought the gold 5S to feel BALLA BLING BLING YO like it, more power to you. The adults will continue to point and laugh and say "isn't that precious?"

You, sir, got an expensive hobby :) such a phone will cost you $1000 if not more.

Not an issue bro, the pay checks are cool.

23. HansGoneInsane unregistered

lol :) I probably go for a more affordable version but everybody spends his/her money how he/she likes it, right?

I don't know that "more affordable" is the right term, I would say "better value". But you're absolutely right, people can spend their $$$ how they wish. If they want to pay $1000 for what should be, TOPS, a $550 device, who cares? PT Barnum said it best.

Yep Han... I say, just enjoy your purchase. I really like iOS, and hope people enjoy the platform they use. No need hate, different strokes for different folks. I'm so looking forward the the 6, and so is my honey. She's more stoked than I am actually. I took her to camp out last year for the first time, and she actually liked it lol. We chilled, had coffee and snacks, and just mingled.

Please for the love of god samsung sue them for copying the note 2 and s3 and bankrupt apple for good (note 2 has a 5.5 inch screen and apple thinks samsung is copying the form factor so use it against them also the s3 has a 4.7/4.8 screen size but both phones have better resolution)

Actually, the iPhones have 960p resolution versus 720p resolution in the Note II and S3. Also the iPhone 4.7 inch screen is smaller than the S3's 4.8 inches for an even crisper screen.

Sammy doesn't have to resort to desperate, juvenile, and sad tactics that waste the judicial systems time. They are more concerned with improving the tech, building their market share, and promoting their brand. I like that. A good product will sell because it is good, not because the crybaby competion abused the USPTO and judicial system and there are no other choices. Which is what apple wants.

I agree with you but apple needs to just die and samsung needs to man up deny building anything for them and get some pay back

It would be nice huh? Samsung's approach is working for them though, just let the baby cry and throw a fit until it gets tuckered out and mercifully shuts the f*** up so that the adults can do business. Apple continues to lose market share and give Sammy free advertising, while Sammy laughs all the way to the bank.

Apple is still filthy rich and the iPhone 5S has sold better than any Samsung smartphone! Shut your uneducated mouth. Samsung has simply brainwashed you to think that they're better than Apple somehow.

Can't wait for you to LEARN to read and be able to have an actual debate without having to resort to threats of violence and burglary. Instead of just circle jerking with your fellow apple trolls.

See, you iFans insist on using "appow has DA MONIES! They r rich!" Like it means something. You do understand that isn't an argument, right? Kim Kardashian is pig filthy rich, yet she's still a trashy, shallow, overrated, useless piece of s***. Now do you have an actual argument?

Dude, get laid man, you're too wound up. Nobody cares, we're all gonna buy what we want, and you're gonna b***h about it when we post. Your words mean zilch.

And yet when the adults show up and can back their stance with, yknow, facts, you devolve into a 12 year old and resort to petty name calling and threats. Know how you can tell you've won an argument? The other guy pulls the "duh ur a virgin lol get laid" card. Riveting. Between that and your adorable gold toy phone, I bet all the teenagers think you're just the coolest.

There's no argument to win, cuz I'm not arguing with you. No matter what you come here to say, it's pointless and futile. Haven't you figured that out yet, argue for what? I like iOS more than android, android is my #2, now let me see you put up any argument to change my stance. My "adorable gold toy phone" performs just fine. Now, once more, nothing you say can change that. What cracks me up, is that you actually log on to PA to win arguments with random people, who absolutely couldn't care less what you say. Now kindly see post 67, cuz man does it ever apply to you dude lol. Wowwwwww, you actually, really feel the need to argue someone's purchase, and have no idea who, or where they are. Lmao, and SMDH. Get yourself a woman quick.

Well I'm 12! Maybe that's why I sound like a twelve year old dumb***! By the way, you say the iPhone looks like a good toy? The Galaxy S5 looks like a band-aid. That's probably what it's made out of because Samsung can't do $&@*!

Which still has f*** all to do with quality. I'd explain it again, but you didn't comprehend the first time. Perhaps if I drew a diagram for you? In crayon, perhaps? Would you understand then? Maybe even throw in some stickers and a juice box?

I don't what you have to say. I don't even care about the iPhones. That could be made of cardboard for all I care. The point is that no matter what people will buy them, regardless of quality, then, they will shove them up your butt.
