Apple may unveil two iPhones at its event next week, but don’t expect anything radical at this point in time. Rumors suggests these phones will likely resemble the current iPhone 5 with some upgraded internal hardware. The radical jump may come next year with a phone with a larger form factor.
This prediction is based on a report from the Wall Street Journal that suggests the Cupertino company is testing handsets as large as 6-inches. People familiar with the matter told the WSJ that Apple is toying with idea of phones that range in size from 4.5 to as large as 6-inches. This reportedly is the first time Apple has been open to a larger phone and represents a major jump up from the current iPhone 5, which clocks in at a mere 4-inches.
Don’t get too excited for a phablet-sized iPhone just yet as companies regularly test a variety of hardware sizes and form factors before settling on one. Which size will get the big thumbs up from Apple? Your guess is as good as mine, any predictions?
