Next iPhone to have bigger screen?
Reports suggest the tech giant is working on new iPhones that feature larger – and curved – screens.
According to Bloomberg, Apple is reportedly working on an a 4.7-inch iPhone and a larger 5.5-inch iPhone.
Currently, the screen on the iPhone 5S measures in at 4 inches diagonally.
But by comparison, Samsung’s Galaxy S4 has a 5-inch screen.
It’s logical to see why Apple would want to slap a 4.7-inch screen on the next iPhone. But why 5.5 inches?
The trend lately with phones is that bigger is better. Just look at the Mega’s 6.3-inch display, one of the latest phablets (a mix between a phone and a hybrid) to hit the market. Sure, it’s ludicrously big – a far cry from the smaller-is-better phone commercials from yesteryear.
The curved screen will likely make the iPhone much more ergonomic and comfortable to hold.
Bloomerg’s source is apparently someone familiar with Apple’s plans and says the new phones with larger screens may be launched in the third quarter of next year.
But with phones featuring larger and larger screens, how big is too big? Or what’s too small? What’s the perfect phone screen size?
