Apple may launch 6.1 and 6.5-inch iPhones this year


There have been several reports about Apple’s 2019 iPhone lineup. Some had previously rumoured that the new iPhones would be direct successors to the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max from last year. However, a new report claims that in addition to spec improvements for the XR and XS, Apple will also be launching two new models with 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch OLED displays.

According to the report, these two new iPhone models will be designed with the rumoured triple camera system thus, it seems that the expansion of the iPhone lineup has been linked with the introduction of the triple camera system. The report adds that the lenses on the camera system will be the largest ever for an iPhone with an even bigger sensor size. This should bring about an improvement in the imaging department, at least from a purely hardware perspective. This would obviously mean that the camera module will be a bigger component itself compared to the ones before it.

Apple is rumoured to be making the chassis thinner on these models in order to offset the increase in the camera bump. So the 6.1-inch model should sit between the 5.8-inch iPhone XS and 6.1-inch iPhone XR while the 6.5-inch OLED model could be just a hair thicker than the iPhone XS Max.

None of this has been officially confirmed by Apple so take it with a pinch of salt. Apple isn’t due to unveil its new iPhones until later this year.
