There is no 5.5" iPhone. This could be an iPad Mini part. Could be a redesigned Apple TV part. Apple hasn't updated Apple TV in a while and could want to catch up to Amazon Fire TV in features.

Odd that you would mention an iPad Mini as there were people just as sure that the iPad Mini didn't exist either.

It is actually bad. Most of my friends are using androids with the latest samsung note & s5, LG, nexus, etc. They hate using it and can't wait to get back to iOS once Apple came out with a bigger screen. An example is that people here complain about unable to delete about 10 stock apps. Samsun forced 200 apps on to their Note and you can't delete it at all, except restoring/rooting it. That is the skill for tech incline people, not normal users.

Long story short, Apple should make what they think is the best products, but just catering blindly to a market want.

I really have a hard time understanding all the hate towards a bigger device. I can understand if you don't prefer it and leave it at that, but it's like some people are losing their minds about it.
Makes no sense.
No. I am saying Apple making a 5.5 inch phone is wrong. But I agree with you it's a polarising issue. Some love their oversized phones and others think they are toxic cancer. One side or the other is how most people sit on this issue.

Yeah, it's not like we can discern any meaningful information out of those images, like amount of ram, possible new features (they still can't confirm or deny the inclusion of NFC), processor specs etc. so why bother?

Even with the current model lots of people where making the switch to the iPhone. If anything the larger models will just increase the rate of people moving to the iPhone.

I am mainly refering to the first time users of the iPhone since a relatively small amount of iPhone user actually switched for the android OS. Most moved for the larger screen, and I am sure they will come back regardless of when the 5.5 model is released.

Bring on the 5.5"!!!!! And I predict a 5.5" release along side the 4.7", just in smaller quantities of the two.

I'm sure those comments will keep coming until the announcement of the 5.5" iPhone (if that happens). People are already saying that the 5.5" device is anything but an iPhone.

This is how I think Apple will take their iDevices in the future.

Old:
iPhone: One-handed use, pocketable.

New:
iWatch: Quick notifications/input, one-handed use.
iPhone: Pocketable.

An 5.5" iPhone would give more display space while still being able to fit in a pocket.

I wasn't one of those Mini doubters. The mini had TONS of leaked parts. We haven't had TONS of leaked parts for a 5.5" phone. As a matter of fact... we have had none except for this logic board... and this part could be for anything... like I said... an iPad Mini or a redesigned Apple TV.

These has been a leaked back screen for it, as well as leaked schematics, and a leaked front panel.

Can I ask a potentially silly question? Why the two different sized logic boards? Why not make them all the same size (reduce cost) so that there is slightly more room in the alleged 5.5" for a bigger battery to support the larger screen? doesn't make sense for two different sizes if the devices are going to be the same internal spec like the ipad Air and mini retina. Only difference is the screen size. Just my thoughts on the matter.

Well IF (big if) there is a 5.5" version, the rumors have suggested that it may have some features over the 4.7" version. Apple probably doesn't want people making Frankenstein iPhones with parts mixed and matched from both.

I hope Apple makes 4.7 inch phones forever. I don't want my phone to be bigger than my hand.
