Apple to launch 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones in 2014

Ever since Android smartphones broke the 4-inch and 5-inch screen size barriers, people are asking when Apple will do the same with their iPhone. Seems like it’s finally going to happen as reports say that a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone are slated to launch next year.

Bloomberg reports that Apple will continue the trend of launching two iPhones and will introduce two models next year – one with a 4.7-inch screen and another with a 5.5-inch screen.



Although Apple may look like it’s “catching up” in terms of display sizes, the company will introduce more innovative components in its upcoming iPhones like displays with “glass that curves at the edges” which is expected to be featured in the iPhone 6, and “enhanced sensors that can detect different levels of pressure” for the iPhone 7.

Bloomberg’s source say that upcoming iPhones are still in development but are expected to launch in the 3rd-quarter of 2014.

      agLawls. Sa dami ng apple products sa pilipinas, malamang nakagamitn yan. Baka nga kapamilya nuyan may iphone eh. At kahit ba sabihin nating troll siya, di naten maitatanggi na tama ang sinasabi niya.

      Ano kaya ang sasabihin ni jony ive? Unapologetically Bigger. Apple feeling the pressure? Pathetic.

      anonboom, the question is not about whether he is bitter or not. The question is whether he is right or not. So let us ask you this, is he right? Do not evade the question with him being bitter or being jealous or Apple will do it better even with a bigger screen or with a curved screen (and how it will become revolutionary when Apple does it) and pressure sensitive screen (what an innovative idea – except when the concept already exists). Confront it while thinking of the fact that Steve Jobs, the Jesus Christ of computing, said that the iPhone screen size is the sweet spot. Anything bigger looks ridiculous as evidenced by how iPhone owners mocks phones with larger screen sizes. Think about the cognitive dissonance it will generate.

      Every artist copies.

      I’ll wait for the iPhone’s to get larger screens, its a good time for them to catch up. Not to mention that Android is taking the lead right now.

      Peace y’all.. Wala paring tatalu sa Nokia 3310. hehehe

    Rumors and concepts lang. Unless meron siyang concept na better than S pen for 5.5 inch phone, wala siyang say kay samsung pagdating sa phablets.

    Winner iphone pag kaya pa niya palakihin screen without sacrificing compact form niya. Walang android na compact na may magandang specs except kay Motorola.

    Sabi ng nasirang Steve Jobs :

    ”3.5 inches is just about the right size”

    Pinagpipilitan pa kasi ng Apple yung kanilang ”One-handed Operation” ek ek argument pag nag pinch to zoom ka talagang dalawang kamay naman ang gagamitin mo.

    One-handed operation are best suited for keyboard-type 2 inch dumb phones, like the Nokias and Blackberries.

    Now Finally …Apple just came down to planet earth realizing that 4 inches don’t cut it anymore.

    • abdulJakulSalsalani says:

      dumale ka na namang bobo ka, we can zoom on our iphones by double tapping the screen. BOBO!

  7. Yuya says:

    Hopeful for a long lasting battery. That is the biggest concern for iphones aside from their miniscule display size.

  8. wew says:

    good news to…marami rin kasi ang gusto talaga ng iOS pero napipilitan magandroid dahil nga sa maliit lng ung screen…sana isabay na rin nila ung ibang hardware at software features na meron na sa ibang manufacturers

  9. abuzalzal says:

    ahahaha, yari tong Apple kay Steve “Blow” Jobs!

  10. Kami says:

    well if this is true, the competition get’s tougher and tougher.

    Everyone naman is playing some sort of catch-up game, hindi na lang sa design or screen size, kahit sa materials, OS, basically features.

    i still find my iphone 5 size right for basic one hand use such as text, browsing (without too much zooming, although i already discovered a way on how to do so with one hand) and such.

    but of course, as an applefantard, ishit, or whatever you call those apple fanatics, this will be AWESOME!

    hahaha. all the more reason not the diss our beloved APPLE. :D

    • appleseed says:

      and im sure apple will execute the design with class. unlike other android phones, mapa samsung, cherry mobile etc. all of them parepareho itsura.

    Just bought the new iphone and what I could say it’s really superb, smooth, pleasing to the eyes. Satisfaction guarantee, no software hang-ups. I used to be an android user for 3 years and counting now, though I still have android devices on my desk; however,I prefer to play with the iphone and surf through it since it’s much smoother and convenient particularly streaming tv series. Kudos to Steve Jobs and his visions for a superb phone. No wonder why the iphone has a higher resale value than my android devices.
