The report goes onto say that it is unclear whether Apple will choose to follow a multi-size, multi-device strategy beyond the iPhone 5C it’s expected to launch this month. But it appears to be fairly open to the idea, and is particularly interested in 4.8-inch displays.“As Apple Inc. AAPL -0.69% prepares to unveil both a new high-end iPhone and a cheaper version for the first time next week, it is already working on something bigger.The electronics giant has begun evaluating a plan to offer iPhones with screens ranging from 4.8 inches to as high as six inches, people familiar with the matter say. That would be a sizable leap from the 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5 released last year, and, at the upper end, would be one of the largest on the market.”
According to a new report from Wall Street Journal, Apple is currently testing iPhone screens as large as six inches. The news comes as many of the company’s competitors are releasing handsets with 5 and 6 inch displays—the new Note 3 measures in at 5.7.
All of this suggests that Apple is looking to expand its smartphone and tablet lines. And while we won’t likely see the new options at next week’s event, or at the proposed event in October, the consistent chatter makes you think that they may not be very far off.
In the past few months, we heard that Apple has the intentions to test a larger iPhone displays and this would be a nice idea as the apps display will look more beautiful and powerful..
