iPhone 6 on Release Date Will outsell iPhone 5s

But one handset proved as the runaway winner – the iPhone 5S, which Gruman said collected some 32 million sales in Q4 2013 and the numbers could have been greater had Apple only delivered sufficient supplies during the holiday quarter last year.

Apple’s 2013 flagship completely outpaced the Galaxy S4, which in the last three months of the same year cleared 20 million units. So Gruman expects the iPhone 6 to replicate or even surpass the iPhone 5S even if the former would keep the 4-inch screen that Apple insists is the optimal standard for mobile phones.

And the same numbers, according to Power, could easily shoot up should Apple decide to stretch the iPhone 6 screen size. He added that by opting for a larger/wider display in the next iPhone, the tech giant is poised to gain traction in Asia, where the phablet form-factor is immensely popular.

However, having a screen that is bigger than its current standard remains a big question mark for the iPhone 6 as reports suggest that Apple CEO Tim Cook is still searching for the reliable display technology that will convince him to ditch the 4-inch iPhone 5S screen and go phablet for the next iteration.

In the absence of solid proof or confirmation from Apple, the iPhone 6 on release date will likely keep the 4-inch screen profile while introducing innovative features such as Liquidmetal casing, sapphire glass and coating, 64-bit A8 processing chip and iOS 8.
