"It appears Apple's next iPhone will feature a 4.7 inch screen," reports DigitalJournal.com.

Meanwhile, over at Apple Insider, that site is reporting: "According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is planning to debut two new iPhone models with two distinct screen sizes in 2014, an unprecedented move for the company that traditionally shies away from screen size wars.

"Aside from obvious size differences, the top-of-the-line 5.5-inch model will sport a higher-resolution screen at 1,920-by-1,080 pixels, which translates to 401 pixels per inch. The 4.7-inch iteration will use an oddly-spec'd 1,334-by-750 pixel display to maintain scalability with existing apps. That screen is good for a pixel density of 326 ppi."

DigitalJournal says the new iPhone 6 will be thinner and adds: "It appears Apple has already started negotiations with carriers to hike the price by $100. iPhone plans will start with a $199 base fee in the U.S. and expected to be consistent with other countries."

Here's a mock-up of what might be an iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch screen that was published on the Chinese website Weibo:
