iPhone 6 could be one-handed 5-inch device

Apple iPhone 5sApple may give the iPhone 6 a 5-inch, 1080p display, but design it such that people can still use it one-handed, claims Japanese magazine Mac Fan. A number of smartphones -- like the Galaxy S4 -- are already at or over the 5-inch mark, but are so wide that one or both hands have to be dedicated to holding them. The iPhone 6 may get around this by making its side bezels as "thin as possible," presumably taking design cues from the iPad mini and iPad Air. On the Mini, at least, Apple uses palm detection technology to allow people to rest part of their hands on-screen without making accidental taps or gestures.

The iPhone 5s and 5c still feature 4-inch displays in an era when most competing phones are at least 4.5 inches. Apple has tried to spin this to its advantage by pointing out that an iPhone can still be used single-handed. A one-handed 5-inch display would allow Apple to both compete with rivals and retain a distinct feature.
