Another day, another rumor that Apple plans on launching two iPhones this summer featuring bigger screens.

This time around, The Wall Street Journal is reporting, citing people who claim to have knowledge of the company's plans, that Apple will launch one iPhone with a screen size bigger than 4.5 inches and another boasting a display in excess of 5 inches.

That report follows another from Wednesday by QQ Tech, claiming the iPhone 6 will feature a 4.7-inch screen. Another iPhone Apple plans to launch this June will come with a 5.7-inch display, according to QQ Tech.

In addition to a larger screen, Apple plans to ditch the plastic casing in the iPhone 5C and go with metal in both versions of the device.

For its part, Apple hasn't confirmed that it's even working on a new iPhone, let alone two devices featuring larger displays. Apple is, however, behind on the screen-size front. The company's handset currently boats a 4-inch screen, making it one of the smaller devices on the market. Many Android handsets come with 5-inch-or-larger displays.
