What Is Unique About Apple’s Rumored Phablet?
Rumors about a planned phablet device from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) seem to be piling up in the wake of the company’s earnings report released on Monday.
According to a report from Apple Insider, Japanese magazine Mac Fan reported that Apple is planning to make an iPhone with a larger, 5-inch screen. The magazine referred to the device as the iPhone 6 and said that Apple would make the phablet thin enough that it could still be operated using just one hand.
Apple’s commitment to the operation had made some skeptical about the possibility of the company making a large iPhone, and such an ability would set Apple’s device apart from the phablet pack. The iPhone 5 models have a 4-inch screen, which was an increase from the 3.5-inches of the iPhone 4 models.
Apple Insider did point out that Mac Fan isn’t known for publishing Apple rumors, so it doesn’t have a prediction track record to judge its speculation on.
