Make Your Own 5-Inch iPhone Right Now with This Printable Model


Far-stretching rumours have claimed Apple is set to launch a larger iPhone this year and we’ve seen mockups of what a larger device could look like too. But now you can print your own papercraft model to experience what a potential larger iPhone design would feel like in your hands.

MacRumors hired CiccareseDesign to make a 3D model of a larger iPhone with 5-inch screen and has released PDF drawings so you can print and construct it yourself at home.

Iphone 5 inch

We haven’t tried this out yet but it would be a great gift for your children.

Apple CEO Tim Cook recently stressed the current 4-inch display on the iPhone 5 is the “right one” for the company as they have “put a lot of thinking into screen size.” A 5-inch iPhone could take away from one-handed operation, a feature Apple has stressed as a major advantage the iPhone 5 has over some of its larger Android competitors.

    this is heart breaking, perfect size but will probably never happen.

    a 5 inch screen is way to big for one handed operation. I understand a larger screen is beneficial under certain situations but not at the expense of its portability.
    just my 2 cents

    A 5″ 16:9 iPhone (competing with the Nexus Note 2) would probably cause me to not only upgrade my iPhone 4, but dump my iPad 2, too – based on the stuff I find I routinely use them for.

    To take two gadgets to one pocketable one would be just fine with me, though I doubt Apple would be thrilled with such a view.
