Could This Apple Inc. iPhone 6 Rumor Actually Be True?

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) stock got a much-needed lift in the wake of the company's monster earnings blowout last week.

As Apple's most dominant performance in recent memory, the report certainly gave investors a lot to love. And from the looks of it, Apple could just be getting started.

In the months to come, Apple's product launch cycle is expected to begin, even possibly as early as Apple World Wide Developers Conference in June. Among its upcoming products should be a new iPad, an updated Apple TV, possibly an iWatch, and the highly anticipated iPhone 6. And in looking at the iPhone 6, a key recent rumor just became a whole lot more plausible this week.

Apple's screen size scramble
Some weeks ago, a rumor surfaced that Apple intends to produce both 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes for the iPhone 6, which I promptly called into question

Fast-forward to today, a recent research post has suggested that a two-screen strategy for the iPhone 6 could make a lot of sense for Apple in key emerging markets like China. According to Kantar WorldPanel, some 40% of smartphones in China sold in March we're larger than 5-inch, suggesting a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 could help drive even more sales growth for Apple's key financial driver.

In the video below, tech and telecom specialist Andrew Tonner analyzes this interesting news in greater detail.

A better bet for wearables success than even Apple
If you thought the iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad were amazing, just wait until you see this. One hundred of Apple's top engineers are busy building one in a secret lab. And an ABI Research report predicts 485 million of them could be sold over the next decade. But you can invest in it right now... for just a fraction of the price of AAPL stock.
