Next iPhone coming in September, says analyst, won't bow to peer pressure for larger displays

Jefferies & Co.’s analyst Peter Misek, who has covered Apple extensively over the years and issued quite a few preemptive notes to clients regarding events going on in its supply chain, was on Bloomberg TV giving an interview recently, regurgitating his main talking points on Apple's universe.
The main take from his musings are that nothing in Apple's supply chain indicates that it is prepping to launch a phone with a large screen, or at least larger than the one found on the iPhone 5. The specifics of Apple's display tech usage apparently won't allow it to conceptualize and retool for a big-screen iPhone the way Tim Cook wants it until the 2014 edition.
Also, the analyst tracks more than 400 suppliers, and he mentioned the next iPhone is unlikely to arrive in the summer, but will keep the new September schedule of announcement that was introduced last year. It is virtually certain, Mr Misek said, that the changes won't be in design, but rather in functionality, like a new higher-res camera unit, as well as a faster processor.
As for the affordable iPhone, he confirmed the possibility, saying that it is likely to have the same 4" screen size, but use different components than Apple's flagship, and be introduced for China Mobile and other targeted carriers abroad first.

Seems like China gets all the best products first...:) Must be great too have all the big manufactures producing in/for your country.

Common guys, we should know apple's change cycle by now. > Year one introduce a New iPhone with new Display/components (iPhone 3G) > Next year introduce a slightly improved phone with bumped up specs and improved software (iPhone 3GS) > Next year introduce a new iPhone display and bumped internals (iPhone 4 and the "retina" display) > Next year add improved specs and new software features > etc,

Peer pressure? What is this high school? And oh yeah, regardless of screen size the 5S will still outsell any other phone out there.
