Alleged 6.5" iPhone Xs Plus displays leak straight out of an LG OLED factory

Alleged 6.5
Today, we have a leak out of a Chinese Mac forum (subsequently deleted) that claims to show us the screens for the eventual iPhone Xs Plus. They do look rather largish indeed, compared to the current 5.8" iPhone X edition, and are tipped to be from a trial run by LG's OLED factory in Vietnam, just as rumored. Not much else can be seen here, but the panels do hint that the notch will be here to stay with the fall iPhone crop, as per all the speculation so far.

Apple is said to issue three notch-y phones in 2018, all with a TrueDepth camera set at the front, even the eventual more affordable model with LCD screen panel. JDI's Full Active screens are the prime candidate to land in the first iPhone with Face ID and LCD display, and we have a detailed breakdown of what it would mean for the iPhone 9.

Surprisingly, it's not the iPhone Xs or the eventual Xs Plus (or whatever Apple names the X successors) that are the most heavily rumored, but rather a lowly iPhone 9 that will apparently be responsible for 50% of Apple's 2018 crop shipments. Still, the bigger batteries, memory and dual camera sets will go to the Xs and Xs Plus, so these will be Apple's top-notch entrants this year.

They way stuff leaks nowadays, I wouldn't doubt for a sec, that those are the real deal. I just hope Apple makes proper use of such a large canvas, by giving it true split screen multitasking, and a slew of other useful features. It's also time to group iOS notifications Apple. On my 12.9 Pro dealing with them is a cluttered nightmare, if I let them build up, which I tend to do. Group them, and make them collapsible... It's time Apple.

That size alone makes me want to switch back. However the iOS notification system is still a mess and they are loving it.

Too small as the tall and slim form factor means that actual screen real estate will be equal to a 16:9 ratio 6 inch screen phone. I am personally waiting for the rumored 7 inch Mi Max 3 with Snapdragon 660.

From "no one needs more than 3.5" display" to 6.5"

That's cause Steve Jobs passed... Imagine Apple if Steve Jobs stayed alive.. They would probably bump up to 4 inch only.

Steve Jobs is dead dude. Times and trends do, and have changed. Give that one a rest, it's not funny anymore.
