iPhone 6 screen again rumored to be 4.7-inches, production to start as soon as next month

Rumors of a larger iPhone 6 continue to grow with a new report today claiming that displays will go into production starting in May. According to Reuters, Japan Display and LG have both been approached to make the panels with a 4.7-inch likely to be made first.

Following this, a larger, 5.5-inch display is expected to begin production, with the delay down to difficulties with mass producing it at that size. Both sizes are expected to use in-cell touch panel technology which allows for thinner construction.

It isn't the first time we've heard that larger iPhones are on the horizon, and it probably won't be the last. Supply chain rumors are rife, but the truth remains that we won't know for sure until Apple tells us. But would you buy one either at 4.7-inches or 5.5-inches?
