The iPhone 6 may arrive much sooner than expected, according to Mizuho Securities analyst Abhey Lamba.

The analyst says checks in Asia and Japan indicate that a July launch is possible but it's still a bit early to be certain. However, supply chain vendors are getting ready for an earlier production ramp up than prior years.

"Recently, the company has been introducing new lineup in September time frame whereas the next generation phones could come out in July this year," he said. "The earlier launch will be helpful for Apple as it will ensure significant availability and distribution of the new device during the holiday season."

As previously predicted, Lamba says Apple could introduce multiple models of the next generation iPhone with varying screen sizes from 4.7-inches to 5.5-inches. Also the functionality of the fingerprint sensor may expanded to support more applications.

In regards to a smartwatch, Lamba says the timing is uncertain but he expects an introduction sometime in 2H14.

Finally, the analyst gives AAPL an outperform rating with a price target of $575.

Apple is rumored to be equipping the new iPhone with a sapphire display; however, despite putting a rush on their new sapphire plant, it's unlikely that it would be able to produce enough sapphire glass by July. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for more updates.

Apple is a big lie, I had it with apple. no more apple for me. You have to be honest in life. And stop making things up to impress your mama.

Your comment is a lie and you are a lie up your ass. Samscum, spamazon, and microsuck always flatters how better they are over nothing just because of having thinner shit or accessories apple already have or features that don't matter.

To those whining apple hasn't done anything good, wake those careless souls up and shut the Fck up and Fck off. What have others done apple didn't? How is apple not this amazing after all these years, what other company doesn't mock like their jealous other than apple, how is it that you guys find the fingerprint scanner and 64 bit architecting a gimmick, every time a new iPhone comes out, it always gets 2x faster and a bit efficient at battery than the last. FYI the jailbreak community, what does that shit have to do with apple sitting back, this is something added to the os many ideas or not, who else has made better ideas when apple is taking credit, has any of you read the reviews right off the apple.com site because if you gimmick more, it proves you moronic ignorant selves you are still going to act. Think samscum is taking the lead, maybe you all want to give others a chance for a living. If you look at microsucks idea of PC becoming tablets, think again. Computers are still built with plug-ins right on the sides of the keyboard but microsock thinks they have the power to do that, all that surfish shit is just a tablet with a keyboard with a tablet, but compared to macs, they are the thinnest and creative computers and tbh I own a mb pro 15" and I am never going back to PC ever again. What other company has made a computer with light up keyboard and apple logo, no pixelation from a working distance is perfect, and most of all, battery. Just look at the 9 hours compared to 5.5 hours PC tried to promise, that was a lie. It was 2 hours. With all this said, jobs or not apple is apple. If you all look back at these charts posts, the graphs from the keynote, and any info graphics, you can understand apple again. Those who aren't amazed is like saying you don't want change and just call the old school better.
