Apple Rumors: Larger 4.7-inch iPhone 6 to Launch in June?

Chinese 'International Electronic Business Analyst Sun Chyang Xu is adding fuel to the fire that there will be not one, but two, iPhone 6 models released this year. Not only does the analyst tell Tencent Digital News that Apple is eyeing to announce a 4.7-inch screen with the standard 1280x720 resolution at WWDC this year (not unlike Apple, remember the first four generations of iPhones were announced at Apple's annual Developers Conference), but he goes on to say that they may release another, even larger, phone later in the year.

Chinese analyst claims 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will be revealed at WWDC, launch June 2014. 5.7-inch 'Phablet' to follow in fall.

'Phablet' for Apple?
The report goes on to state that also in development is a much larger 5.7-inch screen version of the iPhone 6, which would put the device directly into competition with other large-sized phones, commonly referred to as 'Phablets', like the Samsung Galaxy Note.

The device would be approximately 2 inches smaller than the iPad Mini, and offer 1920x1080 resolution (higher, even, than the iPad Mini's 1st Gen display!). They say this would likely be release later in the year, one assumes September or October, as was iPhones 4S through 5S).

While many are speculating that WWDC this year will simply announce the much-rumored iWatch. Which would you prefer to see Apple Launch this spring?
