What if the iPhone, but huuuuuge? That's the thinking behind Apple's rumored extra large iPhone X, which will reportedly be an unnecessarily vast 6.5 inches long, Bloomberg Technology reports. To give you an idea, that's longer than a U.S. dollar bill.

While the gigantic iPhones are not yet confirmed by the company, their rollout would represent Apple's push into the "phablet" territory now dominated by Samsung, and appeal to people who can't make up their minds between getting an iPhone and an iPad. The phone would still retain its smaller cousin's features, like Face ID scan, and possibly come in a new array of colors.
