iphone6-bThere is little doubt that Samsung is going to rock the mobile world this year with the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 4 when it arrives, but a few months ago it was rumored that Apple might be releasing a larger iPhone to take on the stiff phablet competition.  That might have got Samsung thinking for just a minute, but a new rumor suggests that Apple is running into delays with the larger 5.5-inch display.  In the meantime, Apple is reportedly going to focus on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 that is expected to compete with the Galaxy S5 and HTC M8.

According to people from Samsung, the Galaxy Note 4 is expected to arrive in the fall this year and that was the same time that the iPhone 6 with a 5.5-inch display was also rumored to be released.  If the delays are real, consumers might not see the iPhone 6 until right before Christmas, or later.  Samsung has certainly been a leader in larger display smartphones over the years, but Apple is finally starting to change things up a little bit to help compete.  For the past few months, Apple has been rumored to be bringing the larger iPhone to the market and that would be the first time that the two companies will compete with the same size display.

Many expect that Apple may be trying to bring more Android fans to the iOS side of things with the larger display since the Galaxy Note 3 took Apple users away from the iPhone over the last few months.  Apple fans have been calling for a larger display for some time now, but for some reason Apple was just being really slow with the conversion.  The delay rumors are coming from online sources that have been talking with supply chain companies like Japan Display, Inc, Sharp and LG, which are the three companies that were tasked with making the larger display.

In other news, the production for the new iPhone 6 is expected to start next month and that will be focusing on the 4.7-inch model for the most part.  Experts say that Apple relies on cell touch panels for the iPhone 5 and 5S in order to keep the phone thin, but there is reportedly an issue with using those cell touch panels in a display that is 5.5-inches in size.
