Apple iPhone 6 with 5" 1080p display and ultra narrow bezel could arrive next September

There have been a bunch of top-shelf analysts this month claiming that Apple iPhone 6 will sport a larger display, nearing the 5" mark, basing their predictions on supply chain channel checks. First it was the WSJ, then Peter Misek, then Brian White, then the venerable Gene Munster, and now we have a report from Japan reiterating again that next year's iPhone will flaunt a 5" 1080x1920 pixels display with 440ppi pixel density, made by LG.
The iPhone 5, claim the sources, will arrive in September, and Apple is putting a lot of thought and effort to make the bezel as negligible as possible, so as to ensure fairly comfortable one-handed operation. Of course, Tim Cook already warned that reading too much into channel checks is not advisable, as there are a lot of tests and prototype batches there. Next year is the big bi-annual redesign of the iPhone, however, if history is any indication, so where there's smoke there might be a 5" fire indeed.
Such a large iPhone would be a radical departure from everything Apple has tried with its handset so far, and the ergonomics issue will definitely be front and center on Jony Ive's desk until the design is polished. Since the chassis will have to include the Touch ID fingerprint sensor now, too, there aren't many other options to ease one-handed operation but to make the iPhone 6 as narrow and elongated as possible. What do you think?

These are the same people who said there would be multiple screen sizes in the iPhone line up. From 4Inchs to 4.3, 4.5. The same who said the iPhone would have a 13mp camera. The same who said lots of bulls*** So forgive me if I have a hard time believing ANYTHING they say. Here I'll do what they do... The iPhone 6 will have 12 gb of ram Boom. I'm an analyst

There are a lot of people who like 4 inch screens very much, especially in Europe. Nothing will be wrong if Apple will give us 2 screen sizes, one 4 and the other one 5 inch. The point is Android has different themes, widgets and so on but iOS 7 no, so a 5 inch iPhone 5S was't the thing. Maybe iOS 8 will have these functions letting us enjoy bouth them and a bigger screen.

But will apple go with the resolution "1080x1920". They usually go with some ridiculous resolutions like the current iPhone 5,5s its hard to believe apple going to make a phablet or whatever they call it . it will be so cool if this happens. my suggestion is they should go with at least a 5.5" inch screen with a nice stylus or pen functionality.

If so, what will Apple call it as? Retina 2 display with incredible pixel density?
