Apple’s 5.5-inch iPhone will reportedly be called the “iPhone 6L”

1 min read

We have something fresh off the rumor mill for all Apple fans out there waiting for the company’s new smartphones. Chatter coming in from China suggests that the company’s 5.5-inch iPhone model is going to be called iPhone 6L when it is formally launched next month. Apparently the iPhone 6 moniker will be retained for Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone. Both models are expected to be unveiled side by side at an event next month. The rumor also claims that iPhone 6L is going to have a significantly larger battery, boasting a capacity of 2,915mAh. A previous rumor that claims the A8 processor in this variant will run at a slightly higher clock speed has also been reiterated.

Apple is expected to break from tradition and release two new phones with two different screen sizes this year. Multiple reports say Apple will release a 4.7-inch model as well as a 5.5-inch model. The current iPhone is 4-inches, which is relatively small compared to Android phones. When this happens, Apple will face a naming dilemma. Since the first iPhone rolled out, it’s been pretty simple to name the iPhone. Here’s how it’s gone: iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, and the iPhone 5C. But, with the iPhone 6 coming in two sizes, but supposedly otherwise similar specs, Apple has to come up with a way to differentiate. With the iPad, Apple has the iPad Air for the 9.7-inch model, and the iPad Mini for the 7.9-inch model. But the iPad Air name doesn’t really sound right. And the iPhone Air sounds kind of goofy for a 5.5-inch iPhone. So, what could Apple do? Well, there’s a rumor from a Chinese site that Apple might call the 5.5-inch iPhone the iPhone 6L, with the L presumably standing for “Large”. The 4.7-inch iPhone would just be the iPhone 6 in this scenario.
