Apple 6.5-inch iPhone X could be the same size as iPhone 8 Plus



Apple could try to press a much larger screen into one of its most popular phones.

The tech giant is working on a new "iPhone X Plus" that would be equipped with a 6.5-inch screen, Apple's Japanese tracking. The Macotakara website reports citing persons claiming to be over the Apple's plans to know. The ad would be an inch larger than the 5.5-inch screen inside the iPhone 8 Plus, but by taking over the design of the iPhone X, should be able to take the same footprint as the earlier model, according to the report ,

When Apple released the iPhone X next to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus last year, the company quickly discovered that the iPhone X had a 5.8-inch screen, but the phone itself was almost the same size like the iPhone 8 with its 4.7-inch display. Looking to the future, Apple is planned this year, three new iPhones, including a successor to the iPhone X with a 5.8-inch display. Another iPhone with a 6.1

-inch screen could sit next to the 6.5-inch iPhone Macotakara and others have tipped.

The 6.1-inch iPhone was reportedly the runaway in the group. Apple obviously plans to use the OLED screen technology in the iPhone X series and the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus. The 6.1-inch iPhone, which could be known as the iPhone 9, could be delivered with an LCD screen similar to the previous year's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. It would be the cheapest of the three.

Apple is able to press a larger screen in a device the same size as The iPhone 8 Plus was due to Design changes brought to the iPhone X. Instead of chunky panels at the top and bottom of the screen, the iPhone X has all-around slim bezels and nixt the forward-facing home button. This allows Apple to bundle a larger screen in the same area without sacrificing too much size.

Still, a 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus would not be tiny. The iPhone 8 Plus is 6.3 inches tall and 3.1 inches wide. The iPhone X is 5.5 inches tall and 2.7 inches wide by comparison.

But before we go too far, it's important to note that while Macotakara's sources were reasonably reliable in the past, every new iPhone launch takes months to complete. And in that time, Apple may decide to make changes or discard plans before continuing. So while a larger iPhone X might indeed be in work, there's also a chance it's going to hit the rocks before it's released.
