Now that the curtains have been lifted from the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, industry watchers are now looking to heat up things for next year's iPhone 6. Fans have been clamoring for an iPhone with a larger display and with next year's next-gen iPhone, it seems they will finally get their wish.
Jefferies & Co. analyst Peter Misek has submitted a new research note saying Apple is finally going to cave and release the iPhone 6 with a larger display, a 4.8 inch screen to be exact.
Despite still seeing risk to CQ4 and FY13 revs, we now believe better [gross margins] will allow Apple to skate by until iPhone 6 launches with its 4.8 inch screen,” Misek wrote in the note. ”We est ~50% of smartphone shipments have >4? screens and that iPhone 6 will catalyze a large upgrade cycle. The stock is attractive based on the attitude change, FY15 revs >+15%, and valuation.
While it's easy to take these kinds of predictions with a grain of salt, Misek actually has fairly good track record with regards to unreleased Apple products in previous occasions. He is also considered to be one of the top Apple analysts. But of course, this in no way to prove Apple will indeed release a 4.8-inch display iPhone. However, you can expect more rumors and predictions about the iPhone 6 will come rushing in as we go along.
