I like smartphones with big displays, which is why I’m a fan of the Samsung Galaxy Note, so I’d certainly be in line for an iPhone “phablet” if Apple ever decided to release one. With rival smartphones getting bigger by the day, that seems like only a matter of time.
But how big could the iPhone go? A recent report claimed Apple has been considering iPhones with 4.7- and 5.7-inch displays, and the concept video below shows what the latter might look like.
The concept was created by gadget magazine T3, and essentially, its an iPhone 5 that’s been blown up to look like it has a 5.7-inch display. There are some slight differences — such as thinner bezels all the way around the display — but aside from that it’s almost identical.
T3 envisions the “iPhone 5.7” will offer a 1920×1080 Retina display with 386 pixels-per-inch, and a quad-core A7 processor. Here’s the video:
Isn’t it beautiful? Admittedly, a 5.7-inch display is a little too big — I think the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II is as big as smartphones should be. But it certainly looks good — particularly for gaming, watching movies, and browsing the web. Shame it’s just a concept.
