Two models planned for release in the second half of next year would feature larger displays with glass that curves downward at the edges, said the person, declining to be identified because the details aren’t public. Sensors that can distinguish heavy or light touches on the screen may be incorporated into subsequent models, the person said. With screens of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, the two new models would be Apple’s largest iPhones, the person said, and would approach in size the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3 that Samsung Electronics Co. debuted in September.
The new phones are still in development and plans have yet to be finalized; however, it's said they will likely be released in the third quarter of next year.
This isn't the first prediction of a larger display iPhone next year. A report from the Japanese computer magazine, "Mac Fan 2013 December," predicts that Apple's next iPhone will feature a 5-inch 1080p 440 PPI display. Piper Jaffary analyst Gene Munster predicts the company with launch a 'blockbuster' iPhone 6 with a larger display next summer.
As usual, Apple declined to comment on the report.
