Apple’s upcoming 5.5-inch iPhone said to feature 128GB model and OIS camera; 4.7-inch iPhone to max out at 64GB

“We might see the next iPhone models – Apple has for a while been rumoured to be making 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variants of the iPhone – being offered in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage variants, hinting a new report from China,” Ketan Pratap reports for NDTV Gadgets.

“Feng, a Chinese blog, cites sources familiar with Apple’s supply chain and claims that the company’s alleged 5.5-inch iPhone 6 variant will feature a 128GB storage variant,” Pratap reports. “The report further claims that the 128GB storage variant will be limited to the bigger variant of the rumoured iPhone 6, and the alleged 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will offer the conventional 64GB as its maximum storage variant. The move is said to be an attempt of Apple to differentiate the anticipated 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model (phablet) from other phones in the company’s line-up. However, there is still no word on whether the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone will offer the minimum 16GB storage. If the 16GB variant is dumped by Apple, then the unannounced 4.7-inch iPhone 6 might be unveiled with just two storage variants – 32GB and 64GB.”

“In earlier report citing a research note from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also suggested that the alleged 5.5-inch iPhone 6 would sport OIS (optical image stabilisation) for the rear camera,” Pratap reports. “The report further claimed that the alleged 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will not come with OIS.”

MacDailyNews Take: Bigger is better.

  1. I like the 5S size right now. I still think anything bigger is just too cumbersome to lug around everyday. With iTunes Match/iCloud all my music, pictures and playlist freed up GBs of space for me. I don’t need 64-128 GBs of space anymore. 😊

    As long as the 5S size will continue another option is good to have for those craving to compete with Samsung Next Big Thing innovation BS.😏

    1. So why did you go to the 5S? It is bigger than the iPhone 4/4S. Why didn’t you just stick with the smaller phone? Isn’t it more convenient? Isn’t it more comfortable? Wouldn’t it fit in your tiny little pockets easier?

  2. I have a 64GB 4S and love everything about it except…..
    I also have an LG G2 (company phone) which is becoming more and more a POS every minute. The other day it decided to change the ringtone. When it gets warm it starts surfing and composing and goes bats shit crazy, but still…….

    ….once you get used to that screen size, it really is useful (for an old man) and I sure could get excited about having a phone that actually f*cking works that size.
    (OK, that just sounds weird…..)

    I think I could be happy with my 4S as a dedicated music player locked away in the truck console while a larger screened iPhone 6x 16GB or whatever handles the other chores. I look forward to these new models as much as a new Emily Ratajkowski photo shoot.

  3. Well fuck Apple and who cares about their phones. What they have done with Aperture is the final straw for me and I’m moving on. The teenagers who seem to make all the decisions at Apple these days just make changes for changes sake, hoping some of the new “innovations” will stick. A loyal customer for 16 years, who has argued Apple’s corner more times than I can count, has bought his last iPhone and last Mac. If you want loyalty upwards Apple, there needs to be some loyalty back down to your customers who supported you through the dark years. I know the competition out there is largely shit, but at least it’s cheaper shit with a greater range of apps. So long and thanks for all the fish.

    1. Enjoy your new Dell and Windows 8 crybaby, and don’t let the door hit ya’ in the ass on the way out, because it apparently hit you in the head on the way in.

      1. Crybaby? Who uses that kind of word except a child? Face it, Apple is just a phone company now and increasingly clueless everywhere else. What other company would produce a Mac Pro, then a few months later blow-off many of the customers (photographers), most likely to buy such a machine? Just as most people on this site ignored Apple for years while Apple produced brilliance and thus came late to the party, you’ll now stick with Apple gear for years more while they produces mediocrity. Talk about slow on the up-take!

        1. People who buy a Mac Pro would be using Lightroom, in fact the sort of people who use Aperture are highly unlikely to spend the money on a Mac Pro.
          Anyway, as was pointed out, Aperture hasn’t been heavily supported for ages, and nothing whatsoever is stopping you using it for the foreseeable future, while you wait to see what Apple replaces it with.
          Stop being a whiney little brat, and grow up and act your age.

    2. Seriously? You would buy a Windows 8 crapbox just to show Apple who is the boss.

      Aperture’s abilities have been folded into iPhoto and other Apps.

      Come on, admit it, Microsoft pays you to make any step Apple makes look like a bad step.

  4. I know this may come as news to all of you complaining about Apple’s upcoming products, but guess what? You don’t have to buy them! You can keep your current phone. Apple won’t send a goon to your door to drag you to your nearest Apple Store.

    Think Different!

  5. It will be the 4.7 inch screen for me. 5.5 is just too darn big. If it doesn’t fit comfortably in my pocket, it’s useless to me. I don’t want a miniature iPad mini. I understand why some people like larger screens, but I have an iPad and an awesome MacBook Pro for when I want to use a larger screen.
