Customers who avoid Apple's iPhone only because they consider its screen size too small for their needs may soon see their wish coming true. There is no official information about this coming from Apple or one of its hardware suppliers, but Jeffries analyst Peter Misek thinks there are a few signs showing that the upcoming iPhone 6 will have a larger screen.

Peter Misek had a meeting last week with Apple's Asian suppliers and soon issued a note to investors raising the price target and rating of the company from $450/hold to $600/buy. According to the analyst, a 20 percent increase of the screen size would generate an impressive number of upgrades.

"We think the 85M iPhones eligible for an upgrade when the iPhone 6 launches (we think Apple is targeting Sep 2014) could be boosted by another 5-10M from people who skipped the 5S/5C cycle," said Misek.

Increasing the screen size of the iPhone is a logical move for Apple who has  recently seen its market share cannibalized by large screen Android handsets. While only 20 percent of the smartphones shipped in the third quarter of 2012 had screens larger than 4 inches, their numbers rose to over 50 percent during the same period of this year.

At last, it should also be noted that multiple rumors claim that Apple's iPhone 6 will be the first smartphone from the Cupertino company to feature a flexible display. In this case, the increase in size may not be the highlight of this handset.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
