Sources get specific with possible iPhone 6 screen sizes

Just how large does Apple’s next iPhone (or iPhones, as it may well turn out) threaten to be? Over the past few months, we’ve heard a number of figures rumored – so many, in fact, that we ended up getting curious about just what sizes you were interested in, and ran a little poll to that effect (more than half of you indicated a preference for an iPhone in the 4.7-to-5.0-inch range). Today we’re getting specific with rumors naming a couple possible measurements for this hardware.

Supposedly, sources at Foxconn have indicated that they’re working on two sizes for upcoming iPhone models, one with a 4.7-inch display, and one more like 5.7 inches (though that figure may be a little loose).

That’s interesting, especially if Apple doesn’t keep a four-inch option around; surely, there must be a sizable chunk of iPhone users who are very much enamored with their smaller handsets. The 4.7-incher makes enough sense on its own, but once again the idea of an iOS phablet gives us pause; perhaps after the iPad mini all bets are off, but it still feels like a size that Apple just might not be that comfortable with – a convincing leak could quickly change our tune, but so far we haven’t seen any surface
