Re/code reports that Apple will be hosting a big media event on the 9th of September, where the company is widely expected to launch the next-generation iPhone with a larger screen, a better processor and more.

From the report:

A few weeks from now we’ll get our first look at what he was talking about. Apple has scheduled a big media event for Tuesday, Sept. 9 — a date to which Apple numerologists will strain to attribute significance. As with September events past, the focal point of this one is to be Apple’s next-generation iPhones, which are expected to feature larger displays of 4.7 and 5.5 inches and run speedy new A8 processors. Apple declined comment.

Re/code, formerly AllThingsD, has a great track record at getting inside information about Apple’s media events before the invites go out, so we don’t have reasons to doubt the report.

Apple is widely expected to release two variants of the iPhone 6 this year, one with a 4.7-inch display and the second one with a 5.5-inch display. The new iPhones are also expected to include Apple’s new A8 processor with 2GB RAM, Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and an improved 8-megapixel camera.
