The iPhone 5S and 5C have only been out for a few weeks, but people are, of course, already talking about the next iPhone, which we’re just going to call the iPhone 6. Peter Misek, an analyst at Jefferies LLC, piqued interest this week when he said in a research note that “[t]he iPhone 6 will likely have a new design and a 4.8″ display.”
That would make it quite a bit bigger than the iPhone 5, which has a 4-inch display,although would put it in line with smartphones like the Nexus 4, Moto X and HTC One.
An Apple “Phablet”?
Say it ain’t so! David Hsieh, an analyst at DisplaySearch, thinks that Apple will take a page from Samsung’s book and release a 5.7-inch phone. Such a device would certainly qualify as a phone-tablet hybrid, which some insist on calling a “phablet.” These large-screened phones have become very popular in the Asia-Pacific region,outselling tablets and laptops, according to IDC, the technology market research firm.
