Rumored 6.7-Inch iPhone Said to Be Thinner, Have Larger Rear Camera Sensors, and More

Apple is widely rumored to release four new iPhones in the fall, including one 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch models, and one 6.7-inch model, and Japanese blog Mac Otakara has offered a few details surrounding these devices. The information is said to come from sources within Apple's supply chain in China.


The translated report is quite difficult to decipher, but here are some details that are being suggested:
  • 6.7-inch model will have a thickness around 7.4mm, which would be nearly 10% thinner than the iPhone 11 Pro Max at 8.1mm
  • All four new iPhone models will have OLED displays and Face ID
  • 5.4-inch model's height would be between the iPhone SE and iPhone 8, while at least one of the 6.1-inch iPhone models would have a height that falls between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro
  • 6.7-inch model will be slightly taller than the iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • 5.4-inch and lower-end 6.1-inch models will have dual-lens rear camera arrays identical to the iPhone 11
  • 6.7-inch model will have a triple-lens rear camera with larger sensors than the iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • 5.4 inch, 6.7-inch, and at least one 6.1-inch model will have different numbers of microphone holes along the bottom
In line with analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the report suggests that the new iPhone lineup will be introduced in September as usual.

WTH is asking for thinner phone? It's already awkward to hold without a case. Make it more durable, not thinner.

Remember when we just had one phone to choose from? Good times.

The iPhone 6 at the time hit 6.9mm thinness, and they’ve mostly gotten thicker since then. Given that the 2018 iPad Pro dropped somewhat drastically to 5.9mm, I’m sure they’re doing something similar to that with the new iPhone Pro given the rumours of a similar chassis design to the iPad Pro.

I’m so excited to hear the news that the 5.4” iPhone height will be between that of the iPhone SE and iPhone 8. This confirms that the 5.4” model is Apple’s return to a one-handed use device. Praise all that’s holy.

The 5.4“ is looking more and more like a winner for me.

If there is no high-end phone smaller than the current 11, I'll be holding on to my 11 Pro for another year. The 5.8 size is perfect and anything larger is a deal breaker. In fact, I'd actually prefer smaller, but will always opt for the Pro camera. The X/Xs/11 Pro struck this balance perfectly of matching the best camera with a reasonably sized phone.

I fear that Apple is discontinuing the 5.8" size because it sells the least. What they fail to recognize is that it sells the least because of price, not because of size. The masses don't really care, so they buy the 11. The next largest audience just want the largest screen possible and buy the Max. Probably the smallest audience wants the Pro bells and whistles but doesn't want a big phone. I get it, but sadly I fall in that group.

Presumably(hopefully) the thinner profile comes from the recent advances in OLED panel technology and not at the expense of battery life...

I'm always hoping they go to iPhone (5.4/6.1) and iPhone Pro (6.1/6.7), ditch the numbers and weird car manufacturer add-on letters (S/X/Max/etc.). No one buys a new phone every year, this isn't 2015 anymore.
