The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 may arrive as early as June, followed by a 5.7-inch model that should reach stores just in time for the holiday season.

Apple's iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are both really popular handsets and have been on the market for only a few months, but it seems the next generation will arrive pretty soon if the latest rumors prove to be true. According to these predictions, a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 version will be released in June, while the large 5.7-inch handset that will compete with Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 will arrive later, right before the start of this year's holiday season.

Chinese analyst Sun Chyang Xu expects trial production of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 to start in May. The first batch will consist of 2 million to 3 million units and the handset's display will have the same resolution as the 4-inch models currently on the market - 640X1,136 pixels. This contradicts a recent report that mentioned a resolution of 720X1,280 pixels for the upcoming 4.7-inch iPhone.

The larger iPhone 6 will be unveiled together with the 4.7-inch model at WWDC in June, but will be available for purchase much later, most likely at the end of the year. While this handset will offer a resolution of 1,080X1,920 pixels, both models are expected to feature a back camera with 8 MP, OIS and f/1.8 aperture for improved performance in low-light conditions.

Unfortunately, the analyst did not confirm rumors regarding a curved display iPhone 6, so it is possible to see Apple using such a technology starting with iPhone 7.
