This September, Apple is expected to lift the lid on two new iPhones – the 4.7-inch iPhone 6S and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6S Plus. However, if a source within Foxconn is to be believed, there will be a third iPhone to make its debut, and this new device is rumoured to sport a 5-inch screen.
iPhone with a 5-inch screen?
The photo seen above comes to us courtesy of Chinese-speaking Feng. It shows what is claimed to be a drawing made by a Foxconn employee, showing an iPhone with a 5-inch screen. So why a drawing and not a diagram? According to the report, Foxconn employees are prohibited from carrying phones or cameras inside the factory, which is why the source had to make his (or her) own diagram of the rumoured device. The source claims that the this 5-inch iPhone will be joining the the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus in September.
The source claims that the new 5-inch iPhone will sport a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (FDH). This works out to a pixel density of 441 ppi. Additionally, the source claims that the device will sport an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with dual LED flash.
Previous reports claimed that Apple will lift the lid on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6S and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6S Plus alongside the iPhone 6C next month. However, these reports said that the iPhone 6C would come with a 4-inch screen and not a 5-inch screen. So now the question is, will the rumoured third iPhone sport a 4-inch screen or 5-inch screen? Unfortunately, we can’t confirm the screen size of the iPhone 6C. We’re can’t confirm if the device exists either.
Currently, this is all we have to share about the third mystery iPhone. What we have learned from previous reports is that the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus will sport 12-megapixel rear-facing cameras, Force Touch (debuted in the Apple Watch), the triple-core A9 chip, and 2 GB of RAM.
Of course, since none of this is official, take this with a pinch of salt.
So when do we get to know if the rumours are true or not? Apple is expected to lift the lid on its new iPhones on the 9th of September, put the up for pre-order on the 11th of September, and launch them on the 18th of September.
