Alleged 4.9-inch Screen Update for Next-Generation iPhone 5c and iPhone 6

Just two months after the launch of the iPhone 5s and 5c, here is another whisper from CtechCN’s sources for those awaiting a bigger-screen iPhone: Apple has started testing a next-generation handset with a 4.9-inch display. The iPhone 6 (or whatever its name will be) will come alongside an updated iPhone 5c, which will also sport a bigger screen.

The news comes after sporadic whispers of a bigger-screen iPhone. The Wall Street Journal was the first American news outlet reporting that Apple had asked for prototype smartphone screens larger than 4 inches. Now, a couple of months later, a follow-up to the report specifies the screen size: according to their sources, Apple plans to offer iPhones with screens between 4.8-inches and 6 inches.

Since then, other sources have reported that the company is indeed testing bigger-screen iPhones, with the latest claiming that the iPhone 6 will sport a 5-inch screen and an insane 440 ppi display.

Analysts obviously couldn’t resist, and started speculating about the possible price of the iPhone 6. We can only hope they’re more accurate than they were with their price estimates for the “low-cost” iPhone.

    Apple often tests different sizes of their devices – just to see if there may be something there or not. They’ve openly said as much – because it’s no secret, and it’s been happening for years. This is not news. So how can the people reporting this use the word “test”, and then jump to the assumption that a larger screen is a certainty.

    Oh, please.

    Because they want to be right

    If you haven’t noticed Al, conjecture is reported often here.

    It references the Wall Street Journal. And I said “the people reporting this” in reference to that publication and other news sources doing the same.

    I now know why you chose the avatar that you did.

    Your lack of intelligent responses often astounds me.

    Hopefully, one day, your arrogance and smugness catches up with you.

  • Al

    Hopefully, one day, you become a man and admit when you are wrong, instead of resorting to belittling people with juvenile comebacks when you discover you can’t defend your remarks.

    You’re such a gracious winner aren’t you? What I wouldn’t pay to be there the day you get your comeupance

  • Al

    It’s not a contest. It’s a discussion. And I can’t say as I’ve ever pulled an “I told you so”. So your sarcasm about being a gracious winner is misplaced. You just happen to like colouring outside the lines when you get frustrated, and all sorts of nonsensical stuff starts flying off your keyboard.

    Is the irony lost on you that the things you are calling me, along with your bizarre hatred of having your perspective questioned, collectively, are the definition of your own screen name?

    Again your arguments against me are indicative of your very nature but I digress. I love the fact you absolutely need to have the final say and feel compelled to reply to me every single time!
