Leak Suggests iPhone 15 Display Could Be Larger Than iPhone 14

Up until now, Apple was expected to release four models in its upcoming iPhone 15 series that replicate the 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screen sizes of its iPhone 14 series, but a new leak suggests the base iPhone 15 model will have a slightly larger display.

According to 3D CAD files obtained by 9to5Mac that designer Ian Zelbo turned into renders, the iPhone 15 will have a display size of 6.2 inches. Whether this size will be common to the smaller of the two "Pro" models is uncertain, although previous CAD leaks suggest the body of the latter device is a few millimeters smaller than the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, with a thinner bezel and a deeper curve around the edges.

Unlike the iPhone 15 Pro CAD leak, the base iPhone 15 CAD does not suggest this model will have capacitive buttons. Otherwise, the iPhone 15 CAD renders corroborate previously established rumors, including a dual camera setup, the pill-shaped Dynamic Island being adopted on all four iPhone 15 models, and USB-C adoption in lieu of a Lightning port.

I know I am in the minority, or else there wouldn't be this trend towards bigger and bigger phones, but I really love my 13 mini for that and news like this really make me a bit sad. Though Kudos for everyone being happy about it being larger by default.

Thinner bezels are nice, but could we please have another basic sub-6.1” screen-sized iPhone? Anything between 5.4” (like mini) and 5.8” (like X, XS, 11 Pro) would be great!

All the more reason to bring back a Mini size. Give people the option. It’s not like the Plus size is selling any better.

Why would you want a crappy camera?
Because I have a real camera, and I don’t want or need my smartphone to be a lumpy brick. Users like myself shouldn’t be limited to the iPhone SE.
