Mockup of 5.5 inch Apple iPhone compares behemoth to the Apple iPhone 5s

Mockup of 5.5 inch Apple iPhone compares behemoth to the Apple iPhone 5s
On Tuesday, we showed you a case allegedly made to protect the 5.5 inch Apple iPhone that is rumored to be coming this September. The photo of the leaked case, revealed the name of the device to be the Apple iPhone 6s, and also gave us dimensions for the phablet. Today, we have images of a 3D mockup made of the 5.5 inch iPhone, using the dimensions of the leaked case. Those figures came in at 157mm x 81mm x 7mm and makes the Apple iPhone 5s look like a "mini" version of the iPhone.

Considering that last year, Apple released two different models of the iPhone at the same time with the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c, there is no reason to think that it won't do it again this year. But instead of focusing on two models differentiated by price, this year the difference between the two models should be in the size of the screen. The Apple iPhone 6 screen is expected to be 4.7 inches, .8 inches smaller than the phablet version. Its dimensions are believed to be 162.8mm x 85.4mm x 7mm.

You can check out a series of photos below, showing how the mockup of the 5.5 inch iPhone phablet was created using a 3D printer. You can also see more comparisons between the mockup and the Apple iPhone 5s, all by clicking on the slidescreen below.

I'm still skeptical about this 5.5 in iPhone coming out.

Me too. It's more plausible that the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 comes out, but a 5.5 inch... not to sure about that. I need to see it to believe it. +1

I am 6'5" and the tiny iPhone always felt too dainty and girly for me. A real man has a hard time with a girly phone.

That's why I switched to the LG G2. But as for this "5.5 iPhone case", we all need to keep in mind what happened when the iPhone 5 rumors were going around, how it was supposed to be a Teardrop design much like the MacBook Air. In fact, cases were made based solely on a rumor, and that helped solidify the rumor. Oh how those case manufacturers must have felt stupid when the iPhone 5 was announced. Ignore the rumors of a huge iPhone, because Apple themselves have said many times in various press releases that a very large iPhone would go against their idea that a smartphone should be wielded single-handedly and be comfortably used in such a fashion. A 5.5" iPhone would destroy this notion of one-handed use, and a 4.7" model is pushing that limit already.

5½ inch iPhone??? No freakin way; unless you glue two iPhone 4S's's's together. iPhone 6 will be exactly 4.2.0195 inches and it will NOT be revolutionary; it will just be another disappointment in a long line of disappointments.

There's a lot of people making mock ups with 3D printers. This isn't a leak

Right you are. This is a lot of iPeople with nothing else to do with their 3D printers.

Let's see, next iPhone to be 4.7 and 5.5, with maybe split-screen multitasking, and perhaps NFC? Sounds familiar...

7. Sauce unregistered

Airdrop seems very familar. More familar than NFC on my Note 2, because 95% of my friends/family have iPhones. Split Screen Multitasking? Been familar with that since iPhone 3gs. Yawn.

Since when did an iPhone have split screen multitasking? You really like to make up crap.

Wasn't AirDrop released with iOS 7 less than a year ago? Also who wants propitiatory BS that works with one OS? NFC starting hitting phones in what? 2010 or 2011? I'm assuming your 3GS was jailbroken? How else would Apple be rumored to bring "split-screen" multitasking to iOS 8 if it's been there since the 3GS? Wasn't that before iPhone OS 4, which brought the initial multitasking function to Apple devices? Other than a few apps with built in split-screen capabilities for that app only, like the two or three web browsers that will split, there has been no native way of split-screen multitasking on any Apple devices.

I love getting big responses from people. Lets me know I've done my job. If I heard a song yesterday a few times on the radio, can I not call it familiar today? Proprietary BS? Lol. Never ever have I needed / wanted to use NFC on my Note 2 (like I said, no one around here owns Android devices except less than a hand full). Airdrop is easy, clean, fast, and powerful. Also never was able to use Beam. Besides, it's silly anyway. Not to mention, I picked a girl up from the bar a few months ago Airdropping her a cheesy pick up line. Who knew getting laid came with the Airdrop feature? (Anyone who has an iPhone around you shows up in Airdrop if "everyone" is enabled in setting). Of course it was jailbroken. Most of these features on phones like notification center, control center, multi tasking, etc have been around way before (granted hardware allowed it) theyve been released as key features to Android and or a feature phone. It's a shame so many people lack this knowledge. Thanks for taking your time to reply to such a mediocre and simple comment of mine. Look forward to answering more silly arguments in the future :) :)

So just hearsay that it could be done? No proof, we just love reading stretches of the imagination gone wild with out merit. I loathe iPhone, but its the first I've hear of split screen multi tasking on the first iteration never mind later releases. Without showing it happen, your post is worthless to many, not just us asking you to put up. Rubbish.

Of course it was jailbroken, that's the only way they're worth a damn and the only way you can get useful features instead of waiting years for Apple to release them on their own. At least you know that much. I'm always amazed that the jailbreak community is able to do thing Apple says isn't possible! Like the whole Siri thing when it first launched. You seemed to have left that little nugget of info out of your original post, so just wanted to point it out to those that might not be paying attention. You know NFC isn't only on Android, right? Here's a list of all the NFC enabled devices and please note that they are not all Android...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NFC​-enabled_mobile_devices Your comments continue to insinuate that NFC is Android only or something. Please do not get it confused with the propitiatory AirDrop. You see, NFC is a set of standards, along the same lines as bluetooth, so it will work on any device and/or OS so long as the hardware it there. Also, you can be familiar with something you just learned or heard about today, but then wouldn't/shouldn't one be even more familiar with something that has been around for years? I know, my head just think in a much too logical way. If you really do have a Note 2 I'm surprised you wouldn't find any use in the NFC tags, they're really the most practical use of NFC anyways. Put on in your car and just tap it when you sit down to have Bluetooth turn on and connect to your car, and then launch your fav music app, all without touching your phone. Sharing files has been easy to do for years with things like Dropbox, email, text messaging, social networking. NFC bring much more to the table than just sharing files, a-al-AirDrop. The "everyone" feature is nice, but scary at the same time that you could so easliy send data to people and not even know you're doing it....must be why NFC requires the devices to touch, you know people and their privacy! Oh and this is a long post, that first one was nothing but a few sentences. Hope this one isn't too mediocre for you. Look forward to your answers! :)

TLDR. On the s**tter right getting ready to leave work. Skimmed through. Here is my reply. 1) I know NFC is not Android only. Most people in the US either have an iPhone or an Android device. Use your brain before insinuating what I think. 2) You can't just send files to someone without them knowing. A confirmation box pops up and asks if you want to accept. 3) Also, I don't use my Note in the car. My iPhone has all my music on it. Don't use Spotify, and if I did, I'd use it on my iPhone. ALSO: Read this. http://techcrunch.com/2013/06/12/nfc/

Keyword: MOST - Windows phones and tabs have NFC too. How many people do you think have an Android phone and a Windows tab of some sort? I know I do so there has to be a few others. There are also NFC accessories like keyboards. Please use your brain and think outside the iOS and Android box before you attempt to insult me! Do I need to post another list of NFC laptops and tabs for you now too? Come on! I'm using my brain, the same can't be said for you unless you really are this narrow minded. So basically you're telling me no matter what, you're using your iPhone even if your Note is more capable? LOL So your just too stubborn to try something that might be better and just stick to your old ways? Have fun with that!

Most people with iPhones think NFC isn't very useful, but is that because Apple said it? They can only ignore other ideas and technologies for so long. Why not give NFC to the iPhone users who actually want it?

I can't really agree with that. Apple doesn't"Get it"... Apple dictated it, and the mass followed just like they did with flash support. Everyone I exchange files with is blown away by the fact that their phone can do that. But they never get a chance to because most people they know have an iphone. Just think about it... they thought 3.5 inches was the perfect size but even Apple had to face facts.
