The highly anticipated move to an iPhone with larger screens will feature an all-new design. The 4.7-inch display (resolution of 1334×750 at 326ppi) will be the smaller of the two designs and will be available in Q3. A larger 5.5-inch model (1920×1080 at 401ppi)won’t be available to later in the year. This coincides with a recent Reuters report that manufacturers will start producing the smaller screens by the end of May, with the larger 5.5-inch displays running off production lines much later. They will both feature an A8 processor, 1GB of RAM, LTPS Panels, OIS (optical image stabilization) and Touch ID. The bezel will be narrower by 10 to 20 percent. Kuo says that Apple’s new sapphire display will be available only on the 64GB 5.5-inch model. The sleep/wake button could also move to the side of the new iPhone, similar to what we’ve seen in early conceptual renders of the iPhone 6.

Kuo has had a very mixed history. His roadmap doesn't seem far-fetched. iPads get A8, Touch ID. iPhones at 4.7-inch 5.5-inches. New Macs.

Apple sticking with 1GB of RAM also seems predictable. I'll say this, Kuo is getting plenty of press.

Thanks Chris. I just noticed that today on the Yahoo. I didn't look close enough at your news section, but you reported that a day ahead of Yahoo news. :)

I thought Kuo had a good track record for making accurate predictions about Apple's new products. I hope he's right this time!

4.7" Please!

It's been mixed. He was spot on with the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, at least specs. Pricing was off, but I'd give him a pass on that, since that can change.

That would make a lot of people unhappy with the smaller iPhone getting the lower specs.

So how much bigger will the overall phone be with a 4.7" screen stretched closer to the bevel? I don't want a huge phone but looking at all the space around my 5's screen and putting a ruler diagonally it seems overall size will still be decent for us folks who like smaller devices. Correct me if I'm wrong...

I think you're right. I've used the Moto X, which might be thicker than the iPhone 6 and it's manageable. I think if Apple's iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch display and thinner than the Moto X, people won't find the size to be much of a hurdle. It's like when we went to a 4-inch display. That was different, but you adapt. Once you get past 4.7, it's game over for any true one-handed use, barring any wacky software (Samsung employs one handed use software on the GS5, which basically reduces the screen).

That looks huge compared to the 5/5s next to it. Not sure I'm going to like that size jump..

I agree that this 4.7" looks a bit huge beside the 4" 5/5s. By comparison, the larger looks to be at least 5".

GOOD. At first I thought it might be the 4s but figured "why take a pic of the 4s with the new one" so I just assumed it was a 5/5s. Guess it won't look quite as huge compared to 5.
