It is widely speculated that Apple will launch a phablet-sized iPhone this year. But all the rumors termed the two upcoming iPhone 6 versions as the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 and a smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 6.No rumored names of the two versions have yet been revealed. But now a new report from 9to5Mac reveals the name of the larger iPhone 6 version via a Chinese website. Apple Daily is a Hong Kong-based rumor blog that has posted some new photos of both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models with a claim that the larger version will be named the iPhone 6L.However, the website has not revealed the name of the smaller iPhone 6 model.

But the recent news says that Apple is also going to release the 16 GB version of the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 on the same date when it will announce the 4.7 inch version.This information has come from a couple of Chinese publications which also suggest that the new iPhone 6 is going to be known widely as the “iPhone Air”.
