iPhone 6 likely to have bigger screen: Analyst

Washington: Weeks after Apple's latest iPhone5S and 5C starting selling like hot cakes, analysts have predicted that the tech giant's yet-to-be-unveiled iPhone 6 will have a bigger screen and better design.

As Apple is speculated to be testing large-screened iPhones, analyst at Jefferies LLC, Peter Misek said that the next iPhone, iPhone 6, will most likely have a new design and a 4.8" display.

According to the Huffington Post, the recently released iPhone 5S and low-cost counterpart 5C, both have 4-inch displays, while their predecessors have 3.5-inch screens.

If Apple launches a larger screened phone, it will be at par with Moto X and HTC One, but it would still fall short than the Samsung Galaxy S4's 5-inch display.

Market research firm IDC states that nearly 40 percent of smartphones shipped worldwide in the first half of this year had screens larger than 4 inches.

IDC's research manager Ramon Llamas said that there is certainly demand for larger screened phones and Apple just leaves that market to its competition.

Jefferies estimates the iPhone 6 won't come out until September 2014, the report added.
