Now that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) launched the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, it’s time to start making educated guesses as to what we can expect from the upcoming iPhone 6.
Rumors that Apple will expand the screen size
Some were disappointed with the iPhone 5S, as it features a four-inch screen, the same size of screen found on the iPhone 5. There were numerous rumors that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would expand the screen size of their perennially popular phone, but the recent debut of the iPhone 5S shows that rumor was just that—a rumor.
In the meantime, designers are taking the initiative to dream up clever designs for the iPhone 6. GottaBeMobile explained, “Not content with waiting, designers have taken it upon themselves to dream up iPhone 6 concepts that sport large displays. We’ve seen a number of interesting ones emerge and the latest, from DeviantArt, shows an iPhone 6 with a beautiful edge-to-edge display combined with a slim metal frame. With companies releasing “edge-to-edge” displays and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) working to eliminate as much bezel as possible, it could be that we see an iPhone 6 that features a ton of screen real estate. And, it’s also possible that that increase in screen real estate will come along with an increase in screen size.”
iPhone 6 with a larger screen may be just a concept
For now, an iPhone with a larger screen may be just a concept in the labs and in the hearts of designers, though it’s still something that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s chief executive officer Tim Cook should really consider. The tech giant’s top competitors including Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) and HTC Corp (TPE:2498) have created phablet-style phones, which offer the best of both worlds. The bigger screen allows for more enjoyment in viewing movies and playing games. It also makes viewing and editing documents on the go easier. If Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) was to take the next step and launch a phablet, they might just be able to take back the mobile market.
