Dutch 3D artist Martin Hajek has become something of a household name in the Apple community with his painstakingly designed mockups imagining unreleased Apple products.

Today, Hajek published his latest renderings depicting what a massive 6.7-inch iPhone X Plus model would look like next to today’s iPhone X. The best bit: Apple could easily fit a 6.7-inch OLED panel inside a Plus-sized chassis by taking advantage of a near fullscreen design.

To create renderings of an imaginary Galaxy Note-sized Apple smartphone, Hajek used his own 3D files for the 5.8-inch iPhone X model as a starting point to see “what would happen if the screen size would be increased by the same factor as the iPhone 8 to iPhone 8 Plus ratio.”

The results are pretty convincing, as you can see for yourself.

I’d actually say it’s inevitable.

Mind you, his renderings aren’t just wishful thinking.

As a quick refresher, several supply chain sources have said that Apple would most likely expand the iPhone lineup as soon as next year by adding at least one new X-style device to the mix, outfitted with a massive 6.46-inch edge-to-edge display.

Some sources, like The Korean Herald, even predicted that there would be two new OLED iPhone sizes next year, 5.85 and 6.46 inches, basically putting the flagship 2018 iPhone X model on par with Samsung’s Note series in terms of screen size.

I think there’s nothing wrong with that because people love options.

How about you?

Should Apple offer us even more choices beyond the regular and Plus-sized iPhone models, do you think? Do we really need a larger iPhone X or does the one-size-fits-all approach work when it comes to iPhone X design?

    May Hajek replace Ive asap.
    The only way to get rid of spurious glass and that lunatic notch

    • iBanks

      But yet these renderings are exactly what the spurious glass and lunatic notch of the iPhone X currently is. Lol. So replace Ive to do the same thing?

      • Bacillus

        You guys didn’t follow Martin apparently. He had far better and less compromised designs before the X appeared. Now he adapted to the actual X design “language”

    • Lord Ravenor

      Thank god you’re not making decisios at Apple.

      Hayek is terrible. His renders and concepts have been among the most imbalanced and impractical ones around. It’s like he doesn’t understand symmetry or good taste. There have been many more competent and skilled artists who’ve been featured on this and other sites. He’s basically like a render farm, which is why he gets featured by these people. I would never hire him for my design firm.

      As for this, all he did here was stretch out the X. Any competent human being could do that with a photo of the X and some basic photoshop skills.

        I am indeed not running a design shop, but I can’t imagine how the multitude of design talent presently at Apple can be happy working under Ive. The marginal number of accomplishments over the last few years imply that so many of their idea’s being cancelled or denied (or either I do not understand what they’re doing there the year around). Any sensible render farm of the Hasek kind (indeed there are a few others that you may prefer) do improve on the X.
        There are far better solutions than a notch or a glass backside
        So apart from Hasek, there is lots of things I’d prefer over a Notchy world…

    I’m so amused by the haters out there. The notch is no big deal. There is so much talk about how bad it is, but it’s almost never from anyone who has actually used the phone. The people who have find that it doesn’t bother them once they get used to the new phone. lunatic notch? Whatever!

    • AMB_07

      Different people, different taste.

    • Jay

      I have the phone and dislike the notch. I appreciate the better looking screen and the fact is taller than my 7. No need to miss out on it just because I don’t like the notch..

    • Blacklight: Retribution

      I actually like the notch.

  • techfreak23

    Seriously? Almost worthless to have a phone with a screen that big, unless Apple adds support for a smaller second generation Apple Pencil…

    • mickey

      I’m perfectly fine with the Plus size so more screen and less bezels is great to me. The X albeit very nice feels more like an elongated non-plus screen to me coming from a Plus.

  • Jerry

    They won’t make the plus until the price goes down on the cost of the inside. Look how much were paying for this phone imagine a Plus version. It’ll be unreal at this point

    • Mark S

      Don’t places limits on size just because YOU can’t afford it.

  • Benedict

    2000$ ???

    • Mike M. Powell

      Sounds about right

  • Mike M. Powell

    I’ll just take the Regular size, I thinks it’s a perfect balance after using my friends X for a bit

  • nonchalont

    Bigger is always better …..for media.
