iPhones, iPhones everywhere: Apple prepping 4.7in and 5.7in iPhone 6 for June launch

Apple to follow in Android's footsteps with plus-size screens, says analyst

Apple's next iPhone could launch in June, a mere nine months after the iPhone 5s.

That's according to analyst Sun Changxu, who tells Chinese-language site QQ Tech that Apple's gearing up to launch the iPhone 6 at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Blogger Eldar Murtazin also claims that the next-gen iPhone will "possibly" arrive in June, citing "shorter cycles for the whole industry."

Sun Changxu also reckons that the next-gen iPhone will feature a 4.7in, 1136x640 pixel display, and – in a first for Apple – will be followed by a larger 5.7in iPhone phablet.

That matches previous reports from Bloomberg that Apple is working on smaller and larger variants of the iPhone 6, though its sources claimed that the phablet would sport a 5.5in screen.
