After Meeting With Apple Suppliers, New Analyst Predicts 4.8-Inch iPhone 6

Well both iPhone 5s and 5c are here and everything is going great.. It is a normal thing to see new rumors hitting web and concepts claiming that Apple is working on its next generation iPhone which said to be called "iPhone 6". At least thus far they’ve been fairly consistent: the display is going to get a size bump.
According to a new analyst made by Peter Misek is predicting too, after returning from a meeting last week with Apple’s Asian suppliers. Misek issued a note to investors this afternoon calling for an ‘iPhone 6′ with a 4.8-inch display…

CNET reports:
“After meeting last week with Apple suppliers in Asia, Misek issued a note to investors on Monday in which he said that the iPhone 6 would offer a 4.8-inch screen. If true, that would be a hefty increase over the 4-inch screen found in the current iPhone lineup.
Misek didn’t reveal exactly what triggered his prediction, but he did note that the new screen size would drive a huge number of upgrades. Around 50 percent of smartphones shipped last quarter had screens larger than 4 inches, compared with just 20 percent a year prior.
“We think the 85M iPhones eligible for an upgrade when the iPhone 6 launches (we think Apple is targeting Sep 2014) could be boosted by another 5-10M from people who skipped the 5S/5C cycle,” Misek wrote.”
Misek joins a long line of pundits and analysts, including the highly accurate Ming-Chi Kuo, in forecasting that Apple will go bigger with the next iPhone. The size predictions seem to fluctuate though, between 4.5 and 6-inches.

Keep in mind that from a few months ago Wall Street Journal reported that Apple is testing iPhones with screen size ranging from 4.8 to 6-inches. So just what size the handset’s display will be is still a mystery, but bigger seems to be a definite.
