Bloomberg reports that a source inside Apple says two upcoming iPhones will have larger screens. The size changes would the iconic smartphone closer to the “phalbet” range.

According to the source, the two phones in development have screens of 4.7 and 5.5 inches. (Apple released two different iPhones at once for the first time this year.) The current iPhone screen measures four inches diagonally. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is 5.7 inches.

The Wall Street Journal reported similar claims in September that Apple is testing large iPhones.

The Bloomberg source also said the newest glass screen would curve downward at the edges.

They also claimed that testing is underway for touchscreen sensors that can detect differing levels of pressure, but that this technology won’t be ready until after the next iPhone release.

Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs once declared that “no one” would buy phones with screens four inches or larger, as “you can’t get your hand around it.” But he also famously denounced smaller tablets, several years before the iPad mini was introduced.
