Goodbye iPad mini, iPhone maxi arrives

The new iPhone has not yet been released, in fact, there are 12 days left until its launch and there is a rumor that Apple is planning an even larger OLED-screen iPhone next year. The report suggests that next year’s iPhone will be offered in two sizes: a 5.85-inch iPhone with the same screen size as the iPhone 8, and a larger 6.46-inch model .

The source appears to be the same as for the previous report, which suggested at the time that Apple was working on a slightly smaller 5.28 inch model along with the 6.46 inch model. The latter report notes that the decision to go with the larger screens was driven by both consumer demand and technological developments.

Sources said Apple until recently considered launching two 5.28-inch and 6.46-inch iPhones next year, but the plan for the 5.28-inch model was abandoned due to growing consumer demand for larger screen phones and related technical progress.

In June it was reported that Samsung was building the world’s largest OLED display production plant as it seeks to meet future demand for screens for the iPhone 8 and beyond. As the only source of OLED displays for the iPhone 8, Samsung is believed to have seven separate production lines dedicated to the next phone.

While the report seems to be based on a single source, the idea is at least plausible , suggesting a return to the company’s recent tactic of offering a standard and Plus model each year. While a 6.5-inch screen has previously translated into a tablet-sized device, the bevelless design of iPhone 8 would produce something not much different in the dimensions of iPhone 7 Plus.

There’s also the fact that Apple seems in no hurry to produce a new iPad Mini. The last update to the iPad Mini 4 was two years ago. It seems possible, maybe even probable, that Apple plans to discontinue the iPad Mini completely . If so, it would offer a bigger iPhone to those who like such devices and measures.

What do you think of this rumor? Do you see any logic in it? Will we see it next year? Tell us in comments, we are waiting for you.
