High price could limit bigger-screen iPhone sales

Tech Yeah! Apple's bigger iPhones

Apple is expected to roll out iPhones with larger screens this year, and although demand for these larger phones is mounting, how well they sell could depend on how the tech giant decides to price the devices.

The iPhones are expected to come in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch versions, according to leaked design mock-ups from multiple sources, noted CNET Senior Editor Brian Tong.

But their larger, sapphire glass screens could be significantly more expensive to manufacture, and Apple could pass on about $100 of that additional cost onto consumers, Tong said.
