    That will be way too many SKUs for Apple. Unlike them me thinks.

    I don't think it'll happen, but I'd probably get it if they did release a 5" phone. Not read to jump from 4.7" to 5.5" quite yet.

    Typically every design leak since the iPhone 4 has been true, I will believe this. I do believe that the iPhone will eventually upgrade to 5" from 4.7. it is possible for this year, just not as probable. Having three screen size options defiantly gives the consumer choices of which model fits them.

    All I see is a drawing of an iPhone 5s with "iPhone 6s" on the back. This rumor definitely seems sketchy :)

    Totally agreed. But of course  is trying to replace iPods with iPhones. So though it may not make sense now, it might in a couple of years.  does have a tendency to do things that may seem odd but justified later on.

    Wait what D:

    The 4.7" will be the 6c and the 5" and 5.5" the 6s and 6s Plus o_O
    And ONLY the 6s Plus is getting the 12 MP camera while the 5" 6s retains the 8 MP one :mad:

    No way Apple ... i mean it was ok to give the 6 Plus OIS but not the 6 ...but this is ridiculous ...

    .3 inches is not nearly enough of a difference for this to make any sense at all.

    Haha, I just noticed that. What's funnier is that I did not even add that picture to my post. I think one of the mods added it for me.

    I highly doubt it. I doubt they'd change screen sizes, especially on a "S model" year. I think we'll see 4.7 and 5.5 inch screens for awhile.

    As much as I'd love this to be true I really don't think it will be :(

    I don't see Apple making a phone that is different design-wise from its 2 existing phones, especially if it is to sit between them in terms of size.

    I'd buy it as long as it comes with the 2 wasps in the picture. :)

    Why??? 0.3 really. In fact 4 ,4.7 , 5.5 make more sense.
