Take these pics with a grain of salt...

We’re still months away from the launch of the next generation iPhone, but a series of new pictures have leaked on the internet that claim to show Apple’s next smartphone flagship.
 
There are obviously no “official” specs to go on at this time, so you’ll just have to settle for the following images:
 

 
The next generation iPhone is expected to retain its Touch ID fingerprint authentication system while adding a larger, higher resolution screen (possibly 5+ inches). Although no one knows what the exact resolution of the display would be, don’t be surprised to see Apple settle on something around 1280x2272 (exactly twice that of the iPhone 5/5S/5C).
 
We’re also assuming that Apple will throw in a custom A8 processor as a follow-up to the current A7, and let’s hope that Apple has decided to include at least 2GB of system RAM (Apple current flagship iPhone 5S only includes 1GB of RAM while flagship machines from competitors offers at least 2GB).

Dear Apple,

I see your new phone has leaked to the web... and it appears that you're growing the size of the screen.

As much as I like a large screen, please don't make the phone any larger in physical size... please, please, please! Unless you're going to release an iPhone nano -- that might be ok.

I may have large hands, but I don't my phone any larger... You don't need to catch up to the galaxy phones. You don't need to catch up to the Note. Be yourself, and have confidence in yourself -- work on perfection, not comformity.

And if anyone says that they need you to be bigger like everyone else, please ask them to get their eyes checked... it can be cheaper in the long run over buying bigger and bigger phones.

Besides, your screen still scratches too easily, the battery doesn't last a whole day of usage, and your iOS crashes more than Windows ME -- seems to me like you have enough to worry about, never mind a bigger screen!

thanks and yours truly

Eyes aren't the problem, the extra real estate allows for easier and more reliable two-thumb portrait mode typing.

FWIW, I, too feared the size jump when I switched from iPhone 4S to the S3. It proved to be a non-issue. And I place my phone in my front pocket.

Larger screen/phone will also help with the battery issue. It is a lot easier to fit a large battery in a large phone than it is in a small phone. That is, if they choose to. Apple likes light things too though.
