iPhone 6 Expected in Two Sizes This September

Are you ready for a larger iPhone 6? Then you're in luck. Apple is reportedly working on two new, bigger versions of its popular smartphone. What's more, the handsets could hit store shelves this September. The latest reports, which come via the Japanese publication Nikkei, suggest that the iPhone 6 will come in two flavors, a 4.7-inch version and a 5.5-inch version.

This isn't the first time we've heard rumors of larger iPhones coming down the pike. Similar reports have paired a new 4.7-inch iPhone with a mammoth 5.7-inch handset. Other rumors have pointed to a possible 4.8-inch iPhone. We've also seen reports indicating that the smaller of the two iPhones will measure 4.5 inches, while the larger one will be inches.

Potential screen sizes aren't the only rumors we've heard about the iPhone 6. According to various reports, the handset could sport a dual sensor camera array that captures luma (brightness) data and chroma (color) data, and combines them into one image. We've also heard that the next iPhone 6 could use the same 8-megapixel camera found in the iPhone 5s, though with more impressive features, or a 10-megapixel shooter.

Further rumors suggest the iPhone 6 will come with a wicked fast quad-core, 64-bit A8 processor and sport a Liquidmetal chassis. Of course, all of this is still just conjecture, and should be treated as such. We'll have to wait until Apple unveils the iPhone 6 later this year.
