The rumoured large screen phone by Apple seems to be a variation and an updated version of the Apple 5c rather than the 5s like we had expected and this surely turns out to be a big disappointment considering how well the 5c did. But on the plus side, this larger iPhone will only come as an extension to the existing line of 5s and the 5c and it will not come as a replacement to either of these.
All this news has flown in from a report by Mac Otakara and the sources have also claimed that Apple is planning on having 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch displays on the new phones which are most probably launching this year. Like we mentioned earlier, this new model will be more of a 5c variation and here we are listening to rumors about the phone being designed with the same rounded back edges, button designs, and speaker/microphone hole designs like the 5c. Along with 5c, a touch of the seventh-generation iPod nano will also be given to the new models.
It is truly surprising how we managed to get our hands on such details way before the phone has made it even closer to release. According to some sources, the 4.7-inch iPhone will measure at 14x7 cm, while the 5.7-inch model will be larger with dimensions of 16x8 cm but both the models will be 7 mm thick. Some rumors have also indicated towards the new iPhone featuring a "bezel-free" display and a 10-megapixel or higher camera module with an improved filter.
