Apple could start production of the iPhone 6 in May for a possible June launch according to Chinese industry analyst Sun Chyang Xu. As GSM Arena reports (Jan 20), Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2014 takes place in June, hinting towards the expected release date.

Apple is expected to enter the iPhone 6 into the company of larger display size handsets by offering the phone in both 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch models. A bigger screen size will likely mean a higher resolution, bumping it up from the 1136 x 640 pixel density found on the 4-inch iPhone 5S.

Earlier reports suggested that Apple was considering adopting bigger screen size models for its iPhone 6 flagship phone to compete with some of the current Android and Windows smartphones and phablets, which sport between 5 to 6-inch displays.

“Screen size is one of the things where Apple has to catch up to the Android camp. Innovation in components has been a key for Apple since the first iPhone came out,” analyst at Yuanta Financial Holding Co., Dennis Chan told Bloomberg.

As Macrumors points out, consumer demand for larger phones has likely convinced Apple to finally cave in. A June iPhone 6 release date could rival the Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G Pro 2, which are also expected to be released this year.
