According to the leaks in 2020 there will be no more 5.8 iPhone
how do you explain this?

i think the sweet spot is the 6.1 inch

but i think that this year apple will sell more 5.8 phones than predicted...

i think it will be a problem for many people because next year flagships 5.4 will be to small and 6.7 will be too big.... and 6.1 will not be the flagship..

so a x/xs/11 pro user which model will be upgrading to?

It's possible I missed the 2020 rumors. Can you share source(s)?

Personally, I like the bigger phones but at 6'4" and 220 lbs, I have no problem holding onto or putting the Max phone in my front pants pocket. My wife, at 5'4" and 120 can barely fit the 5.8" phone into hers (she rarely carries a purse). I know many other people, mostly women, that think the 5.8" phones are too big. They may be happy with a 5.4" one.

I elaborate on my theory in my thread above, but basically I am thinking that the 5.8" and 6.5" Pro models are being replaced by 6.1" and 6.7", and 5.4" will be the new base model in the line. This is backed up by a recent rumour that Apple was prioritising cost-saving production methods for the 5.4" OLED panel.

Can the 2019 phones be released before speculations of models that probably wont come out for another 13 months.
