Another Report Claims Apple's 'iPhone 6' Will Be A Phablet
A new report claims that Apple’s next-generation iPhone will include an improved screen with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 and a pixel density of 440 ppi. The so-called “iPhone 6” will also be as “thin as possible,” and could be marketed as the first “phablet” able to be operated with one hand. This news comes from the Japanese magazine Mac Fan, and was first published online by Macotakara. Rumors of a “phablet” iPhone have been circulating online for some time. Earlier this year, for example, Jefferies & Co.’s Peter Misek claimed that such a handset – be it the iPhone 6, or the “iPhone maxi” – could launch as early as mid-2014. Other reports, too, have indicated that the market demands a phablet-style iPhone. Apple would be wise to release a larger iPhone. At the same time, I hope they would continue to produce new 4-inch handsets, such as the iPhone 5s. Not everyone, in my humble opinion, would want to buy a phablet-style phone. Would you?
