Apple has been rumoured to be working on larger iPhone displays, with sizes of up to 6 inches speculated — but according to a report from two analysts the iPhone 6 could be set to feature a 5-inch diagonal screen. Cantor Fitzgerald’s Brian White also seems confident that this will be the case, citing a meeting with an unnamed Apple component supplier.

“Nearly a year ago, our research in Asia uncovered early  stage work on a larger iPhone, and we indicated in our Apple initiation report dated 9/4/13 that ‘a  larger screen size on the iPhone is possible in 2014 that could approach 5 inches,’ White said in a research note.

There have been many rumours about the iPhone 6’s screen, with other analysts such as Jefferies & Co.’s Peter Misek claiming a 4.8-inch screen, whereas DisplaySearch believes that it’ll be a 4.7-inch screen.

It’s a while until we’ll get our hands on the iPhone 6, what with the 5s and 5c already selling in the millions after only being announced last month — but it’s always nice to speculate. Unfortunately with such a long time to go until the event, we wouldn’t take this with more than a dash of salt.
