New rumors are popping up to confirm that Apple might be planning to release a bigger version of the iPhone in June. The codename for this phone is the “iPhone math”. Although this does not seem to be a name that Apple traditionally would use for a new phone, it might function as a codename for the project. The bigger phone is rumored to be released in June, along with the release of the iPhone 5S. This rumor has been confirmed by multiple sources, like the China times and MacRumors.
The iPhone math would have a 4.8-inch screen, with a 8 Megapixel Camera. It would feature a Retina display, iOS 7, up to 64 GB of memory and a A5 processor. The lightning connector would also be used to save some space for more memory. The iPhone 5S would also feature a 8 megapixel camera. The iPhone 6 will we released in the holiday season of 2013, and it is rumored to have a 12 megapixel camera. If the bigger “math” version does include the NFC (Near Field Communication) technique is still unknown.
It is however still unclear if these rumors are completely true, as it seems very unrealistic that Apple would release a bigger iPhone, and then to update it with the iPhone 6 in a 6 month timeframe. Earlier this month there were some rumors about a new smaller and cheaper iPhone, but these were confirmed false. Apple does not intend to release a smaller phone because it will lose the high quality that the company is known for. But as said before, these rumors were about a smaller iPhone, not a bigger one.
It would be strange if Apple did decide to create a bigger phone, as they already made the iPhone 5 bigger, to create the perfect resolution and screen size as they said. And since they also released the iPad mini (a smaller version of the iPad), there is no need to create a phone that is between 4-inch and the 7.9-inch of the iPad mini.
The iPhone 5S will be produced in March, and then released in June, most likely at the yearly WWDC keynote which is held at that time. We will keep you up to date with the latest rumors and changes about this event in the mean time.
