Over the past few weeks we have been hearing rumors that the next generation iPhone, commonly referred to as the iPhone 6, is going to have a larger display. Most of these rumors have come from supply chain sources or otherwise questionable sources, but now the prestigious Wall Street Journal has ran a story claiming to have heard that the iPhone 6 is indeed going to have a larger display. According to the Journal, two iPhones will be launched this year, one with a 4.5 inch display and the other with a display greater than 5 inches.
Both iPhones are said to have design similar to the iPhone 5s and even use the same build materials. The report claims that plastic body introduced with iPhone 5c will be discontinued. There have already been numerous reports about the poor performance of iPhone 5c, perhaps that’s why Apple isn’t planning on extending the life of its “unapologetically plastic” iPhone. 4.5 inch iPhone has reportedly been prepared for mass production whereas the larger model is currently believed to be in “preliminary development.” The new iPhones are expected to be unveiled in the second quarter of 2014, presumably at the same time, like the company unveiled iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c back in September 2013. No word as yet on internal specifications, though the A8 SoC is expected to power Apple’s 2014 crop of mobile devices.
