Washington: As the phablet market is going red hot with launch of LG G2 Pro, now Apple is eyeing to join the market with its upcoming iPhone, report.
Apple is rumored to launch a bigger screen iPhone and now new report claims that the company is eyeing to unveil a bigger version of iPhone 6 along with standard version to challenge phablet category.
An image of what is reportedly the schematic design of the iPhone 6 have been put onto the web by Japanese publication Mac Otakara.
Rumors of two different iPhone 6 handsets being launched a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch – refuse to die, but the first of these images suggests the larger phone will actually measure5.7 inches.
The 4.7-incher will 66mm wide (the iPhone 5S is 58.6mm) and 70mm thick, while the 5.7-inch iPhone will be 77mm wide and 6.7mm thick.
However, the source claims this is the iPhone 6C, and given the single LED flash and rectangular volume buttons, we’d be surprised if this was the flagship device.
But then things get a little confusing. French site NoWhereElse has published a different image sourced from China, showing the back of an alleged iPhone which disagrees with the aforementioned dimensions.
This one lists the width at a mammoth 85mm, making it wider than the HTC One Max’s 82.5mm body. It would also give the phone a diagonal display measuring 5 inches.
This one feels a lot less likely than the first. It would be a phenomenal jump in size and make for a pretty unwieldy device.
