After becoming comfortable with the 5.5" I wonder if Apple would trim the bezels and jump into 6" screen?

I'm hoping the OLED screen that's coming next year would be slightly larger. Upgrading from the 6 to the 7 Plus has shown me what I've been missing in screen size.

As long as they keep the same form factor...

I think we will see a reduction of the bezels at the top and bottom, maybe even to just a few mm, so the device will shorten and if they want to increase the screen size they can do that with only a minimal widening of the phone . Including the fingerprint sensor into the screen area, and having room for camera and earpiece right at the top, but incorporating other sensors along the top, or into the screen section as well.

They can very well have bigger screen size if they use the newly introduced edge to edge display by sharp, integrate the fingerprint sensor under the screen like their recent patent and we will get roughly 5" and 5.8" phones without changing the form factor..

I would think with the Note 7 disaster it would be opportunity to tap into that market.
The Plus models are already in that market.

If they do, I want to see them go to 5-5.1 inches with the regular 7.
If they can shrink the bezels so that it's the same size or only slightly larger than the current 4.7" models, this is what I want as well.
