Renderings tease what a 4.8-inch iPhone would look like

Hint: It's bigger.

Apple Digger RU

Apple took lots of flack for the design of the iPhone 5. The company's decision to go taller instead of wider even spawned a meme or two. Would the company -- quite literally -- take that design to the next level?

The latest rumor says Apple is, in fact, eyeing an even larger screen for the iPhone, one that's close to 5-inches in size, up big from the current 4-inch model.

Despite an earlier report today saying such a device wouldn't see the light of day until 2014 , Russian Apple news site Apple Digger has lovingly put together some renderings of one.

Chief among the changes is a sixth row for apps, one more than iPhone 5 users get, and two more than those on older devices. The mockups also show a device in different colors, a rumor that picked up earlier this month from an analyst note, along with an upgraded 12 megapixel camera on the back:

Given the all around thinness of this rumor, you'd be smart to not get too excited about seeing this thing in real life anytime soon, but boy are these renderings getting good.
