(Newser) – The iPhone 6 is coming in September, and it'll be available in two screen sizes—both bigger than the current four inches. At least, that's what a report from Nikkei Asian Review is suggesting, via Business Insider. The story is based on insider accounts regarding the production of LCD panels, which could reportedly begin as soon as April at a number of factories.

Current iPhones have 4-inch screens; the iPhone 6 appears poised to come in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch varieties. That seems to align with earlier word that Apple was considering a larger screen amid a growing market for "phablets," or phone-tablet hybrids. For comparison, flagship phones from Samsung and HTC have five-inch screens, Business Insider notes. The new iPhones' displays will also likely have a much higher resolution, Nikkei reports.
