Contrary to a previous report, KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo now believes Apple’s next-generation 5.5-inch iPhone, likely to be called the iPhone 7 Plus, will have a dual back camera across the whole line. Previously, KGI is quoted as saying only the high end configurations of the iPhone would adopt the new camera technology:

5.5 inch Stories August 22, 2014

French site iGen has posted what it claims are screenshots from Foxconn, which – if genuine – confirm a number of details from earlier reports, and to reveal the dimensions of prototypes of both iPhone 6 models. The screenshots appear to be fuller versions of the raised camera schematic posted by Apple Club Taiwan a couple of days ago.

It should be noted that there is no way to know when these prototypes were created (though some photos appear to date back to February), and that dimensions of the production model could change. The 4.7-inch model (code-named N61) is shown as measuring 138.14x97x6.9mm, while two different 5.5-inch prototypes (code-named N56) are shown, the larger of them measuring 158.07×77.79×7.1mm. The codenames are consistent with ones we’ve seen before, but are well-known so this is not evidence that the screenshots are genuine …  expand full story

Crude 3D-printed mockup compares size of monster 5.5-inch iPhone 6 to iPhone 5S

We’ve seen a lot of images, renders, schematics, and videos of the expected 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6, but relatively little on its rumored larger brother, a 5.5-inch model.

This crude 3D-printed mockup posted to RocketNews24 makes no claims to be anything more than an illustration of what a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 would look like in terms of size, both in the hand and compared to an iPhone 5S, but does do a good job of turning the abstract dimension into something concrete.

Based on claimed design drawings, the mockup measures 157mm long, 77mm wide and 6.7mm thick.

Check out the full gallery below.

In a previous poll, 30 percent of you planned to buy the larger model, while 60 percent were more interested in the 4.7-inch version. Now you have a sense of what the size could translate to in the hand, do your plans remain the same? Let us know in the comments.

5.5 inch Stories April 24, 2014

With it seeming increasingly likely that Apple plans to launch two versions of the iPhone 6, one with a 4.7-inch screen, the other with a larger 5.5-inch display, which one will you buy?

Last time we ran a poll, we didn’t know what sizes were on the cards, so simply asked you to choose from a range of sizes. At that point, most of you opted for something in the 4.6-5 inch range, with only 7 percent wanting something larger than five inches.

Now that the likely sizes seem more certain, and you’ve had a chance to look at a whole bunch of concept images, we thought it would be interesting to see whether you’re still of the same view, or whether or are now tempted by the idea of a 5.5-inch screen …  expand full story
