Apple could reveal iPhone unit sales as high as 57.5 million later today. At least, that’s the forecast from Sanford Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi, Jr.

In an investor’s note out Monday, Sacconaghi noted that Wall Street expects Apple to report around 55 million iPhone handsets sold last quarter. But he said he believes the Street is underestimating the benefit to Apple from “carrier additions and an earlier China launch relative to the iPhone 5 cycle.” During the quarter, Apple added Japan’s NTT DoCoMo to its carrier lineup and was covered in China by China Telecom and China Unicom.

If Sacconaghi is on the money, iPhone sales would jump by 70 percent from the 33.8 million units reported in the September quarter and by 20 percent from the 47.8 million seen in the final quarter of 2012. Moving ahead, China Mobile is expected to boost iPhone sales by adding 11.6 million units sold for fiscal 2014 and 15 million for fiscal 2015.

The projection isn’t as promising for the iPad. The analyst expects iPad unit sales of only 23.5 million, lower than the Wall Street consensus of 26 million.
