Rumours for new iPhone with a 5.8-inch Samsung made display emerges again

We recently heard that next year Apple will launch a new size variant of the iPhone which could measure at 5-inches. Now we are hearing that a new larger variant might also be introduced.

The new variant is rumoured to feature a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display which will be made Samsung. Now this isn't new as we have heard about a similar rumour dropping in March, even before the iPhone 7 was launched. As reported by DigiTimes, Samsung Display will exclusively manufacture displays for the more premium variant. Initially it will be produced in small quantities starting March and production will be increased post May-June.

If the report is true, it would make it the fourth variant planned for 2017.  This rumours matches to a previous report that suggested 2017 will see four new iPhones coming from Apple. However, it could also be one of the many testing units planned for the iPhone 8.

It is too early to say if Apple will announce new size variants as the iPhone 7 was just launched a few months back. While we are expecting the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus next year, there is a possibility that Apple will jump to '8' or even launch both at a different timeframe in the same year.
