In the past couple of years, a lot of talk has been centered around the possibility of Apple expanding the size of the iPhone to keep up with the kinds of phones that other companies have been producing. According to a recent Taiwanese report, that could finally be happening in the near future. According to the report, there will be a 5.6 inch as well as a 4.7 inch phone coming out in the next year.
The rumor is also that the phones will continue to use the Gorilla Glass that current phones are using, rather than the new screens that are being produced in their US based factories. The Arizona factory that will be producing a lot of Apple products in the near future, but they will be using sapphire screens that are supposedly going to be used in the iWatch if it ever sees the light of day. With the limited supply of them, though, it seems possible that the new iPhones might not use them.
Even more interesting, however, is the rumor that they will not be using the traditional iPhone name on the new phones. Considering them an experimental product would be confusing, though, and might not fit in with the universal feel that Apple has traditionally employed.
How much of this will be true can’t be known right now. We’ll have to wait for more official announcements, although they shouldn't be far off if any of the rumors can be believed.
