I first read about the 5″ iPhone and I thought to myself it was another silly rumour.
Then I started doing the math. How are the measures of my 5S: 4.87 inches (123.8 mm); the width is 2.31 inches (58.6 mm); the depth is 0.30 inches (7.6 mm); and the weight is 3.95 ounces (112 grams).
How much of that is wasted space? If the screen used 90% of that real-estate how bigger would it get? I am sure Jonyy Ive’s team has a way to make work. In reality we need the speaker, home button and the front camera. All the rest could be screen.
If someone can take a couple of centimeters from a phone, for sure is Apple.
When the iPhone went from 3,5″ to 4″ how much did the phone actually grew? Just in height, the width, depth and wright are pretty much the same. So, if they can remove a centimeter from the front real estate (and they can), they have a lot of room to show more display.
You can bet. If Samsung can do a 5″ SmartPhone with 126mm X 69mm X 7mmm with 130 Grams. Any Phone will be smaller, thinner, lighter and way,way better than any other on the actual market.
