Apple has finally set its latest iPhone 6 flagship phone against wide public exposure, and this time, the successor to one of the most cherished mobile phones worldwide comes in two variants; the simple iPhone 6, and the iPhone 6 Plus, which packs a beautiful 1080p Retina HD LCD display, and with all those pixels, it is said that the brand new iPhablet (Of course, it's not officially called that) “will play games in higher resolution than next generation consoles.” The truth is not at odds, the iPhone 6 Plus really will, and theoretically, it will as well be able to deliver the processing firepower needed to run triple A mobile video games.

Apple's iPhone 6 Plus Can Play Games in Higher Resolution Than the Next-Gen Consoles, Thanks to 1080p Retina HD Display and A8 SoC

Apple's latest flagship phone is now official and you will soon be seeing the two different variants of it in a lot of hands. Packing several impressive features, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both run on Apple's latest A8 SoC that delivers overall better CPU and GPU performance compared to the A7 dual-core processor from iPhone 5s. One of the effective iPhone 6 Plus' features is its beautiful 1080p Retina HD 5.5" LCD display, which places it under the phablet category, and also empowers it to run games at full HD resolution.

The Latest PlayStation 4 and Xbox One video game consoles have attained such level of prominence that they are taken as comparison standard for anything gaming-related that comes out with latest technology. Eli Hodapp, TouchArcade's Editor in Chief also went ahead and compared the iPhone 6 Plus with the latest consoles, and came to a conclusion that Apple's latest phone “will play games in higher resolution than next generation consoles.”
