WSJ: Apple launching two larger iPhones in 2H14, doing away with plastic

  • Backing up several reports in recent months, the WSJ reports Apple (AAPL -0.8%) plans to launch two larger iPhones in 2H14: One with a 4.5"+ display, and one with a 5"+ display.
  • The paper adds both devices will use metal casings and won't feature curved displays, and that Apple is "expected to scrap the plastic exterior used in the iPhone 5C."
  • The WSJ previously reported Apple is evaluating iPhones with 4.8"-6" displays, and Bloomberg has reported Apple plans to launch 4.7" and 5.5" iPhones with "glass that curves downward at the edges."
  • More recently, Cowen's Timothy Arcuri has said supply chain checks point to the launch of a 4.8" iPhone supporting the high-speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard (already supported by various Apple and Samsung devices). Like others, Arcuri also expects a ~13" iPad to launch this year.
  • Calls for Apple to offer larger iPhones have been widespread amid soaring demand for large-screen Android devices, particularly in China and other parts of Asia-Pac. The launches could allow Apple to win back some European and Asian smartphone share lost in recent quarters to Samsung (SSNLF, SSNGY) and others.

    Too bad the WSJ and NYT have lost their credibility. They should come on a roll. That way after you take them with you to the smallest room in the house you can truly put their reported features behind you, where it belongs.

    I for one bought the iPhone 5S and, as soon as available, will switch to the iPhone 6. You see, for an equipment that you use so many times in a day, every day of the week, every week of the year, the cost is well worth it, since it ends up being a tiny fraction of one cent per view. Don't know about you, but I value my time, and the pleasure and efficiency in it.

    They had better plan to produce A LOT of these phones. This will be the biggest thing since the original iphone. It will solidify Apples #1 spot in the Asian market as well as the U.S. market. This should send Apple to all time highs if Apple isn't there before the launch.

    bit late. Bought a 5" Samsung a year ago because apple was too small. Next phone will be a 6 or 7 inch and again apple will be too small. They are playing catch up instead of getting ahead of the trend.

    As usual AAPL is late to the game, and when the product finally comes out, it will be praised by iFans everywhere (just like the very late and very forgettable IPad Mini 1st gen).

    Same here. Loved my iPhone but got really tired of waiting for a screen I can actually type a text on without wishing I had a 3-year old's size fingers. The venerable Nokia 1520 with a 6" screen was my choice. Amazing phone, fits perfectly fine in my back jeans pocket (where my iPhone always went anyway), fantastic quality and camera and I can actually type on my phone and read a news article without straining for once. Many of the posters here really just will blast anything not Apple, even if it's an option that may work better for them simply because it wasn't designed in Cupertino. It's going to be funny to watch the string of glowing comments around here when Apple does finally release a large screen phone.

    I have owned 7 smart phones (none of them were Apple products) since 2002 and the 5s is by far the best phone I have ever purchased. Never thought I would say that. If the 6 is all that the 5s is coupled with a larger screen then I too will upgrade. People who know me can't believe it when they hear me say "The 5S is the best device I have ever owned."

    I have had multiple Blackberries and am now on my third Android (Nexus One, Galaxy S2 LTE, Galaxy S3) and am not an Apple user but I will be getting an iPhone when the larger screen comes out. This will be the first Apple product I have ever bought personally. I'm sick of constantly crashing apps, ads and 5 hour battery life on top of generally buggy software. I have a feeling I'm not the only one with this type of experience, and I certainly don't mind spending a little extra on something I use so frequently.

    If you inventory all the categories that compares Apple to Say Samsung, Apple wins on 8 of 10. The noticable flaw is screen size.

     

    The galaxy line mostly found success because of the larger screen. It makes obvious sense to take that advantage away. Most surveys will tell you Apple defection was due to size. The good thing is it is easily fixable.

     

    As a prosumer who used at least 20 smartphones over the course of the last 8 years, Apple is far away the best for the most. As far as size. 4.8" 380 ppi is enough spec to win the majority back as a flagship phone. The moto X is 4.7. It fits fine in the pocket and adequate for viewing most of what you need day to day including social games. I don't know my geometry but 4" diagonal and 4.8" diagonal is what 28% in screen space? 4" is really too small that's why no one outside of Apple builds it and probably these things are studied to death.

     

    The drawback is the Iphone 6 cycle may hit margins and Apple may have to increase the price point by a notch.

    Yep, case in point: I defected due to screen size. I'm getting older and eyesight suffered as well as trying to text on that tiny keyboard was an exercise in futility. No other major reason (well iOS was getting a bit stale also but that was minor). I hated the thought of going Android. I chose the Nokia 1520 and couldn't be happier. After a day of use it's not as big as you initially think and handles fine in one hand. Quality is outstanding. Windows OS is a nice change but not even close to being as well-rounded and powerful as iOS. I'd be more than willing to look at Apple again if they went with an actually usable screen size for me but knowing Apple with Cook at the helm it'll be small size increases, not anything explosively mind-blowing like Jobs would have done.

    I think it is a lot like laptops, but the inverse. Over time, the "perfect" laptop has shrunk, and I think people are liking bigger phones, particularly as they have gotten slimmer. But, like laptops, one size doesn't fit all.

    Nobody cares what the "calls" are for what Apple has to do in order to compete. Come talk to me when competitors dominate mobile web traffic and control a majority of the smartphone profit. But thanks for that last bulletpoint anyway.

    Must admit I waited for the iPhone 5s specifically, now that I have it, I am quite happy with the form factor. Anything I want to do on a larger device, I have my iPad air for that. Now, after all that, need to see and feel the size of the iPhone 6 before a final decision.

    4.7' seems perfect to me. I understand that smartphones are used less and less as phones, but I don't want an awkwardly large phone making my pants look silly and rendering one-handed use impossible. That's from a user's standpoint. From an investor's standpoint, I think it would be smart for Apple not to overreact to this 'giant market' for phablets. The numbers for this are all very unreliable, and the idea that Apple should jump head first into a phablet because 'they're popular in Asia' seems crazy. If so, why is Samsung getting taken to the cleaners at the high end? Apple doesn't want to cannibalize iPad sales, and they don't want to spread themselves too thin on form factors. I think a combo of 4' phone and 4.7' sounds good, or maybe a 4.3' and 4.8...something along those lines.

    Samsung's tanking stock price and recent earnings miss, together with their recent acknowledgements of disappointing sales at the high end, indicate otherwise. I made no forecast about Note sales a year or two ago, but what I remember is: Samsung is 'eating Apple's lunch', 'Apple is Doomed', etc. etc. Most indications now point to the idea that Samsung is getting squeezed between Apple at the high end and Chinese producers at the low end. There has been a near complete role reversal between these two companies in the past 12 months.

    I switched from Note 3 to iPhone 5S and I must say the Note 3 is lengths better than the iPhone 5S. However, you have the itunes store for all those who want to spend money on high quality apps and then there is the "cool" factor if you work in a western country, this is definitely beneficial.

    I may be the odd man out here, but I like the Windows Phone OS. I currently own a Lumia 822. I've used Black Berry, Android, and iPhones in the past. Windows phone is by far in my opinion the easiest to use and navigate. The app store has all the apps I use except one. I planned on staying with the Lumia series phone when it comes time for my upgrade, but with the device and services division being sold off to Microsoft, who knows what will happen by the time I am ready. One thing is for sure though, my next phone will have a larger display and not be iPhone. I like the ability to customize my screen some.

I'm an Apple guy with an iPad, MacBook, iPad, and iMacs, but I wanted the larger screen and I'm okay with the Samsung. However, I do get tired of all the ad's and the occasional crash.

    I love reading the comments on articles like this, sometimes more than the actual article. People who argue back and forth over which phone is better like if SA was tech blog. The truth is buying A PHONE depends on what you want from it. Most people forget that these are supposed to be phones first. Yes, it is nice to do everything on one device but the more you put in one device, the less of something else it has. The more crap A PHONE does the less battery time you have. The thinner it gets the less things go in it. The bigger screens are nice but 6" is exaggerated for A PHONE. That's what a small tablet is for. As for the comment about the 1st gen ipad being a waste, I disagree. I still have my 1ipad mini and it works just fine for what I use it for. The point is, this will always be a battle, apple is not going to disappear, neither is samsung. iOS is going to be here and so is android. Each phone is different, as is each person. Ex. Is I like using my phone with one hand, some don't care. I don't need a phone to scroll down a page for me, I'm not lazy. I don't need a phone to pause because I looked away. I like battery life. I personally don't like samsung phones because they try and do to much without perfecting anything. A modern day, jack of all trades master of none. Apple has mastered most of what it puts in its products. Apple is not the only one. Motorola did an amazing job with the moto x. A prime example of specs mean nothing, experience is everything. My opinions are mine, and many may disagree but other companies know what has made apple successful, that's why they are following. Motorola is one example. Google is another by trying to minimize fragmentation withs OS, just like apple does. For the record, I am pro apple and pro android. I own an iPhone 5, a moto x, two iPad minis (one first gen) a chromebook, MacBook Pro, an Apple TV and a chromecast. My wife has an 5 and a lg g2 with an iPad air and a MacBook Air. I have enough experience with both to know what makes them successful. Jmo

    It would be a nice side feature for any iPad to have a built in phone, but I don't think that would even scratch the smart phone market. I love my note II, but I can still carry in a pocket whether it be back pocket, coat pocket or carpenter jeans side pocket. A tablet would not fit any pocket, so for me that would not be an attractive feature. I don't think it would be a big deal.

    I like what I read:
    I want a larger iphone and will buy it as soon as it comes out.
    Go Apple !

     

    As a New Yorker for almost 50 years I deplore, however, the source of the info.
    The WSJ has morphed - since Murdoch - into an unreliable and biased rag;
    deplorable and sad.
    I loved my previous 4 decades+ of comprehensive News presentation via NYT AND WSJ. Nothing better around globally!
    Sic transit gloria mundi.

    Releasing bigger iphone in H2 is another big mistake by apple. They are simply letting competitors eat their market share. How long customers will wait. There won't be any new thing from jan27th to October 14. 10 months is quite a long time. Customers and investors both will loose the interest. I would sell after earnings pop.

     

    I am a loyal apple customer but recently switched to s4 just because of big screen and resolution. Still I have ipad.
    I can undoubtedly say s4 is awesome phone with crap android os. I have 100 reasons to demonstrate android is 3rd class os.

    Looking forward to a much larger iPhone, because my calls are very important to my big business deals.

    This may be the last qtr of Growth for APPL that is due to discounting during the holiday season. Get out before this goes down. It is clear that rev and profit growth is done with this QTR. Do not short the stock until after the trend is established. This evident from the daily Main stream media that they are pumping AAPL and GOOD because these make a big chunk of many index's SnP and Nasdaq 100. If these 2 stocks cater along few oters like XOM, MSFT and few of the bio techs then the market is done. Anyone who are not greedy should bail from this mkt and move to cash or money mkt funds in the 401K. The mkt is rigged game if u sit and watch the tape hardly any real buyers other then the algos buy/selling to each other. Fed has caused another bubble and not sure what to do now.

     

    Keep your family and self safe and move to cash after faster runup in stocks forced by the feds the majority of people who benefited with are the 1% and they want small investor to put hard earned money into stocks now so they can bail. I think that its time to bail and let the 1% folks keep the paper. The revs and profits do not support valuations and corp debt levels have exploded in the past few years. The Main Stream Media like Bloomberg, CNBC and WSJ are not to be trusted even a little bit. They never saw previous crashes and in fact were in hype mode when things were about to fall off.
    Stay safe, APPL is good company with god products but not a good investment at these levels.

    And what will Samsung do when their phones get so large that they can no longer differentiate by being larger that iPhone? They are a copycat in every other meaningful way. Pathetic.

    Good thinking Apple, bout time. Bigger screen is the no 1 reason lot of people went with other brands I think. Doesn't seem like much difference but if you're gong to carry one around and use it all the time why not have the extra real estate when you do , to a point.For many once you cross into the Note II sizes you're no longer using something that either fits in your pocket or you can make a call with without someone else holding the phone up for you while you do
