Earlier this month, Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst for KGI Securities, predicts that Apple will release two larger iPhones later this year: one measuring 4.7-inch and the other with a 5.5-inch display.
Today, The New York Times is reporting Paul Semenza, an analyst for the research firm NPD DisplaySearch, supports Ming-Chi Kuo theory that Apple will ship two bigger iPhones, according to information from several sources in the supply chain..
“Our understanding is that Apple is working on both of the screen sizes for the new iPhone, with shipments likely in the second half of this year,” Mr. Semenza told the NYT. His predictions, he said, were based largely on information from several sources in the supply chain.
Other reports predicting two larger iPhones include one from Reuters and this one from Bloomberg News back in November 2013.
Paul Semenza pointed out that there is a possibility that Apple may release only one of the iPhone in 2014.
“Apple typically has multiple projects ongoing, to test out different concepts, technologies, suppliers and costs,” Mr. Semenza said. “So it is certainly possible that they would not release both of these designs in 2014.”
“However, we are hearing about a lot of activity around both of these, so for now we are expecting both,” Semenza add.
