More analysts expect to see the iPhone 6 display "approach 5-inches"

This time around it is Cantor Fitzgerald’s Brian White who is now convinced that Apple will be boosting the size of the iPhone 6 display. White became convinced after meeting with an unnamed Asian component supplier. White isn't going with the crowd to predict a 4.8-inch display exactly, but does say that it will "approach 5-inches", saying:
Of course, analysts last year were predicting a low-cost iPhone, which never came to be, so we might want to wait until next year before putting too much faith in iPhone 6 rumors.

20 November Analysts think the iPhone 6 could be priced higher The rumor mill has been buzzing about the potential of a new larger iPhone on the way next year. The reports have varied, but it seems clear that Apple is at least testing various device sizes ranging from about 4.5-inches up to around 6-inches.

30 October 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 Brian White, then 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...
Now reading11 October More analysts expect to see the iPhone 6 display "approach 5-inches" The rumors about a larger iPhone just keep on coming. Last month, we heard that Apple was testing devices at various screen sizes from the smartphone range of 4.8-inches all the way to the phablet size of 6-inches. We have also heard two different analysts saying that the displays for next year's iPhone are set to change, and once again that 4.8-inch size was mentioned.

A bigger Iphone would make sense considering the smaller Android smart phones (4.3 being the mini versions) like the iphones 4 inch screen so if Apple went with a larger screen they could get that resolution everyone wants with more pixels, Should be exciting to see larger I phones

Screen size has nothing to do with resolution you could have a 4" 1080p display or a 50" 1080p display they said have the same amount of pixels in the display. If apple was to make the iPhone around 440ppi to compete with android it would be somewhere around 900p.

Apple has shown the mini versions (of the 5" android flag ships) just don't sell well, and thus it makes sense just to sell one version. I am with the camp that Apple goes with a 4.3" device (as opposed to a larger screen) since battery life is so damn important to the Apple experience. People have gotten used to 10 hours of run time as the standard.

Wow, these "analysts" are really taking a huge leap guessing there will be a larger screen on the iPhone 6. Anyone who is even remotely familiar with smartphones know that Apple will increase the screen size. It doesn't take a genious or so called expert to see this was coming.

Lol, more dumb, far-fetched "analyst" rumors. Although, entertaining the notion for one moment... if Apple actually did commercialize a product that was "taller" than 4.5 inch, I wonder what their marketing excu... I mean reasoning would be for why they had to opt for it over their finding of a "perfect" size of 4 inches lol.

4.5" for 2014, 2015 and 2016. 5.0" for 2017 and beyond. Our hands aren't getting bigger. Why should Apple rush in the screen size race? Eventually screen size will not matter in the coming years. Flexible displays and new screen tech will be the next story. Look at the S4 and G2; anything over 5.2" will be a phablet.

I'm much more inclined to say they'll go with a 4.5 inch 720p display, it's pixel density would be 326, unless they went "Super Chromatic iRetina" or some ridiculous iSight-esque name when they go above 326
