This year’s top-of-the-line iPhone —typically nicknamed the “iPhone 8” —will sport a 5.8-inch OLED screen, Japan’s Nikkei said on Sunday as it switched course and backed up similar rumors.

We’ve heard rumors dating back to 2016 about a possible 5.8-inch iPhone, a rumor that has persisted into 2017. Now according to a report from GizOK, they too have “confirmed” that 2017 will bring us a 5.8-inch iPhone. This is particularly interesting as previously the publication had refuted those rumors, but now this report brings it in line with claims by notable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who also indicated that a 5.8-inch is in the works.

The bigger display is intended to further hike the average sales price of the iPhone, which is already sitting at about $700, Nikkei said. Though various versions of the iPhone SE 2, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 7 are available below the $700 mark, many people opt for more expensive configurations.
