Apple (AAPL) is set to release its next flagship phone, widely expected to be called the iPhone 6, in two larger screen sizes as early as September, according to a Nikkei report.
The next generation iPhone will likely feature 4.7- and 5.5-inch displays, both of which are larger than the current generation’s 4-inch screen. These screen sizes are in line with earlier reports.
Citing sources close to the situation, the publication also said that mass production of LCD panels will start as early as the April-June quarter at Sharp’s Kameyama factory, Japan Display’s Mobara plant, and at other facilities.
Furthermore, the Tokyo-based newspaper adds that the new handset’s display resolution is expected to be significantly higher than that of current models.
Apple has been experimenting with a range of screen sizes for the next-gen iPhone since early 2013.
