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...

Samsung wouldn't STOOP that low like Apple. Apple is only afraid when they are loosing their own consumers or new ones. They hate to LOOSE MONEY. And won't admit they are loosing or don't want to compete.

Actually the s3 and note 2 have a 1280x720 while the iphone has 1136x640 do some research, also look at the difference in lcd ips vs amoled

I meant the rumored iPhone 6, also 1280x720 MEANS 720p.

Samsung is way better and if you wanna go on rumored specs go for the note 4 int version octa core cpu (64 bit exynos 5433) with 16 core gpu, 3 gb of ram 2k resolution which is 4x720p can get up to 160 gb of storage and over a 10,000 mah battery plus its water proof dust proof and can survive a 4000 lbs car driving over it come on you really think apple can do anything against that

I meant 2x720p not 4 but you still get my point every spec is 2 or 3 times better then what the iphone has

Apple can release good products. No matter what you Samsuckers think, people still buy Apple's products, and Apple still has the best selling smartphone in the world, ever. Go suck it.

Except they still don't have the best selling smartphone, nor the top market share in the world. How do you not get this? .... Wait, you DO understand that the bigger number is the winner, right?

So you are seriously going to compare existing specs on an actual, real device to rumors of hypothetical specs? And apple fans wonder why we point and laugh. GTFO until you have an actual argument or something of substance to say. "Apple rich!" still isn't an argument, either, so save it for the circle jerk.

Apple rich! Is an arguement. It doesn't matter what what you Samsuckers think, people still buy Apple products, and Apple still has the most successful smartphone ever released.

Apple may be rich but history will repeat itself, apple without jobs was damn near bankrupt till they bought him back this time they cant bring him back so im just gonna sit back and watch apple die for good

When that happens, you'll get laid. Therefore, that'll never happen.

If they could bring him back, I bet he'd be 1/2" taller but otherwise identical to the previous version.

Apple paid 3 Billion Dollars to buy "Beats" Headphone... That's just plain crazy... Poor Steve Jobs must be spinning in his grave, cause I don't think he would have approved of that... Yep, Apple is lost without him. O.o

Seriously, how can anything measure 5.5.1 inches? What kind of number is that? Double decimal? I think you meant 5.51 inches.

Simple: apple patented the 5.5.1 inch measurement. It doesn't have to make sense, it's apple.

Sorry to disappoint my friends here, but I don't think the alleged iphablet exists. It took apple years to go from 3.5 to 4 inches. I don't think that we are going to see a jump from 4 to 5.5 inches. Granted that Steve Jobs is not around. Hence the freedom & common sense to go from 4 to 4.7 or 5. But expecting a direct jump of 1.5 inches is not realistic. IMHO & it's just my opinion, a vast majority of people who buy iphones do so because of its small form factor & because they have invested too much in the whole apple ecosystem shebang. It would be too much work for them to switch over to another platform. Finally, a 4.7 to 5 inch screen helps apple to balance consumer preference for a decent sized screen while still allowing the "can be used with one hand" marketing line. And if Apple is going to stick with the huge forehead & chin design, a 5.5 incher thought goes out the window. The 5.5 inch LG g3 with it's spectacular screen to size ratio is still almost as big as the note 3. Imagine a 5.5 inch iPhone with bezels as in the 5s.. Will be almost as big as the z ultra.. Lol..

A 4.7-5.0 inch screen would only be one hand usable for someone who can palm palm a basketball while running. I can't even use my S3 one handed all the time. I can't drop the notification shade or tap icons on the opposite top corner. Unless the copy Samsung's clever trick for one handed use on the Note 3, they're going to have to drop the one handed argument.

Heck, I love the feel of my 5s, but still feel it needs a larger screen ted. That one handed usage thing, is so overrated.
