Although many rumours suggest that Apple will not demonstrate its sixth-generation iPhone at worldwide developers conference this June, new details about the highly-anticipated handset just keep to emerge. Interesting, but the analysts from Jefferies believe that it absolutely does not matter when exactly Apple launches its next phone as it will be inevitably successful. Most likely it will be revealed this fall.

 

"Based on assumed retained sockets and guidance from supply chain companies (many of which report monthly), we see enormous September quarter builds. Our guess is 50 to 60 million units. We believe that the iPhone 5 is shaping up to be the biggest launch in handset history," wrote Peter Misek, an analyst from Jefferies securities wrote in a report, according to Tech Trader Daily.

Among other things, it is reported that Apple's sixth-generation iPhone will be made of liquid metal materials, will be 20% thinner than the models 4 and 4S and will have 4" screen with even higher pixel density than the currently available devices. This is not the first time when reports talk about thinner form-factor and larger screen.

Apple did not comment on the news-story.
