According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s 2014 iPhone model will include a larger display. Kuo points to a screen size between 4.5 and 5 inches. He says that the larger display will be based on in-cell screen technology, which first debuted in the iPhone 5.
The in-cell screen technology Apple is currently using allows them to make thinner displays, resulting in an overall thinner phone.
Apple probably has been and will continue testing displays of all sizes for the iPhone. This include past reports of 4.7 to 5.7 inch displays, all the way up to 6 inch displays reported by the Wall Street Journal.
Throughout the past year Apple has shown a willingness to increase its product range. Last October they did just that with the iPad mini, a product that some say, under the oversight of Steve Jobs, would never have happened. On September 10, Apple is set to introduce an ‘iPhone 5C’ which is rumoured to be made of plastic and start at a lower cost. This would allow Apple to touch a new market, which is something they have never done before.
In addition to the 2014 iPhone, Kuo has also given his final prediction of what to expect on September 10. As we have been reporting, here is a summary of what to expect for the ‘iPhone 5S’:
Kuo also expects that the new iPhone 2013 models will be available in China one to two months following the announcement on September 10.
