Larger iPhone to Take Design Cues From iPhone 5c, iPod Nano?

Larger iPhone to Take Design Cues From iPhone 5c, iPod Nano?

Posted March 11, 2014 at 6:20pm by iClarified · 14659 views
A new report from Mac Otakara says that the larger iPhone may be a variation of the iPhone 5c; rather than the iPhone 5s. It may also be an expansion to the currently lineup rather than replacing the iPhone 5c or iPhone 5s.

According to the report, Apple is looking at 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch displays as candidates for new iPhone models. The larger device would keep the rounded back, button design, and speaker/microphone hole designs while taking some design cues from the iPod nano.

The 4.7-inch model is purportedly 14cm long by 7cm wide. The 5.7-inch model is 16cm long and 8cm wide. Thickness is said to be 7mm. The rear camera reportedly protrudes slightly from the device like the iPod touch; however, Mac Otakara suggests that perhaps the final version of the device would be made thicker to change that.

While Mac Otakara believes the new phone will expand the iPhone 5c lineup, a recent report from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News claims that Apple will release a 4.7-inch and 5.6-inch smartphone; however, the 5.6-inch phone will not be branded as an 'iPhone'.

This is dumb. Where else do they get there designs? From the previous model. The iPhones look exactly the same design wise. You sheeple keep buying the same damn phone. Retards.

You on the other just buy what other want to gimmick, but how the hell is iPhone the same,does the 1st generation work or even look like the 5s, you call that the same? Who believes that shit? It's like trying to compare how close bathtubs are like outdoor pools or water parks for example, and you would say "you're just wasting time going to another place to get wet" for example. Stop acting like a smart ass.

Your comments suggest that you haven't seen samsung models yet. Just go and have a look at samsung phones from mid-level to S5, all look same. They are carrying same design from last two years and in almost every model whether it is worth 100 or 400.

Reports show that iphone 5c wasn't a huge success as compared to other iphones. Why would they adopt that design again?

Since many still ask for larger phone, why not also pay for it with a way to go cheap, this is why.

The size of the phone shouldn't have anything to do with quality. This is apple and I doubt they couldn't handle a great phone like 5s in a larger size. However, according to this there will be size options so go fur the one you can afford. It's apple for God's sake. Nothing cheap about it. Yes, I'm a fanboy so what???

Exactly doesn't make sense to follow something that bottomed out. Why not make it with quality which brings me to apple !

I doubt you can prove that after they made a success of the taller iPhone, what makes you think they can fail this time, they were able to make the new phone and make it thinner, plus new things for it to without jobs. Also about the quality thing you pointed out, I was talking about what users wanted for a phone and plastic they still use is what may satisfy some users with a cheaper price, the bigger the iPhone with whatever material used, the bigger cost is.

Unless you mean iPhone will be circle shaped, why the hell would they do that? Or unless you mean you want a sharp edged phone, who wanted pointed corners for a phone?

So if 5c 4" is 12.5 cm tall by 6 cm wide, compared to the bigger ones by cm, if apple made a 5" it would be 15 cm tall by 7.5 cm wide. Just an analysis.

If it's a way to go cheaper for people want to pay less for a new phone, go ahead apple.
