The iPhone 4 had 3.5-inch screen. The iPhone 5 got 4 inches of real estate. Now is Apple aiming even bigger?
If you pay even passing attention to the tech world, you undoubtedly know that later this month, Apple will almost certainly release a new flagship smart phone, most likely called the iPhone 5S. (The debut of a budget handset, identified in the press as the iPhone 5C, is also considered likely.)
But according to the Wall Street Journal, in the meantime, Apple is working on prototypes for a few larger devices – including smart phones with displays between 4 and 6 inches. Apple, of course, has already upped the size of its smart phone, from the 3.5-inch display on the iPhone 4 to the 4-inch display on the iPhone 5. But a 6-inch screen would be another beast altogether. In fact, it would bring the iPhone squarely into phablet territory.
