The Apple rumor mill has continuously cranked out murmurings of a larger iPhone since, well, the beginning of time. Not until the iPhone 5 last year did any of those rumors actually play out with the 4-inch display. And yet, the rumors (and demands) for an even larger phone continue.
Personally, I don’t see this happening for at least a couple more years. You can bet the iPhone 5S is already finalized and potentially going into early manufacturing already. The iPhone 6 (2014) would be the earliest we’d see something like this, and I’m not really convinced it’ll even happen then. But then again, it’s possible (although not probable) that Apple would release a phone of this or similar “phablet” size as a second model. Check out the short video below, which shows a 3D rendering of what a 5.7-inch iPhone might look like, assuming the rest of the phone’s design doesn’t change.
