Apple’s next-gen 4.7- and 5.7-inch iPhones’ design will be cross between iPhone 5c and iPod nano, sources say

“With Apple widely expected to launch a new, larger iPhone model this year, a new report claims the external design will take numerous cues from the company’s mid-range iPhone 5c, as well as its seventh-generation iPod nano,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.

“Alleged details on Apple’s plans for this year’s iPhone lineup were published on Tuesday by Japanese blog Macotakara,” Hughes reports. “Citing a trusted source, author Danbo said that Apple has designed two larger iPhone models, sporting 4.7- and 5.7-inch displays, which are final candidates for launch later this year.”

“The new models are apparently a cross between the design of the iPhone 5c and the seventh-generation iPod nano. According to the source, the new, larger iPhone won’t be a replacement for the existing iPhone 5c, but will be akin to a higher-end model,” Hughes reports. “Like the iPhone 5c, the seventh-generation iPod nano comes in a range of colors, but does so with an anodized aluminum body rather than plastic.”

    1. So taking cues from probably at least visually the company’s least impressive products. The nano looks liked coloured plastic while the 5c is coloured plastic. Unless Steve Balmer has taken control I somehow doubt the veracity of this report or maybe imagination has become 1 dimensional at Apple Insider

  1. 4.7″/5.7″ is ridiculous nonsense sizes, because Apple will not change side/width/perimeter of the most popular form-factor in the world — current iPhone. It only allows 4.3″ as theoretical maximum, considering far-fetched, low probable case of Apple curving edges of display so it would appear as if phone will have no borders around the screen.

    Bigger size iPhone is going to be separate model.

  2. I don’t care what they do with bigger iPhones as long as they leave a premium iPhone the same size as the 5S or the 4s. I don’t need a jam box iPhone, I need the iPhone 5s that I have now. Small and powerful is much sexier than big and garish.
