A Chinese online publication Huanqiu intensified rumors of a new bigger iPhone model(s) from Apple to be unveiled sooner than anticipated.

On the other hand, these new rumored devices will not be in terms with the iPhone 6 smartphones, which will be released later this year as predicted, as enthusiasts hear September.

A report from ET news, a South Korean publication, mentioned that the release of iPhone 6 will be on September and it will be slimmer than ever. Same story also stated that prices of iPhone 5’s will drop down to $100 in May for reasons unstated, perhaps the reason of a phablet product line launch will indeed clarify the price drop.
