4.7-inch iPhone 6 to be Launched with a 1704 x 960 Resolution – New Schematics
The very latest iPhone 6 display reports indicate that Apple may be planning to launch the next-gen iPhone with significant changes in the display. Apple's current iPhone 5s comes with a 1136 x 640 resolution display; while the recent report claims that the upcoming 4.7-inch iPhone 6 display would feature a significantly higher 1704 x 960 resolution, retaining the same 16:9 aspect ratio as the earlier iPhone models.
iPhone 6 display resolution:
These revelations come from a report from 9to5mac which claims that Apple would introduce major changes in the upcoming, rumored 4.7 inch iPhone 6. The said 1704 x 960 4.7 inch iPhone 6 will have a 416 ppi pixel density; 5.5" iPhone 6 variant will sport a 356 ppi.
Considering anything over 300ppi is taken as a Retina display, the upcoming two variants, the 4.7inch iPhone 6, and a 5.5-inch phablet iPhone, will both have pixel density more than enough to be called a sharp Retina carrying significant density boost than any other previous iPhone. This increase in display density will result in crisper text, images, and video for users of the next-generation Apple smartphones.
Here's an excerpt from the aforementioned report:
Apple is preparing to make another significant screen adjustment to the iPhone. Instead of retaining the current resolution, sources familiar with the testing of at least one next-generation iPhone model say that Apple plans to scale the next iPhone display with a pixel-tripling (3X) mode.
This means that Apple will likely be tripling the aforementioned “base resolution” (568 x 320) of the iPhone screen in both directions, and that the iPhone screen resolution will be scaled with an increase of 150% from the current 2X resolution of 1136 x 640. Of course, Apple tests several different iPhones and display technologies, so it is possible that Apple chooses to take another route for display specifications for the 2014 iPhone upgrade.
... So, regardless of whether Apple goes with a 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch panel—or both—the new iPhone(s) will have significantly more dense screens in comparison to current and past iPhones, which will result in crisper text, images, and video for users of the next-generation Apple smartphones. Also, by definition, both screens will have pixel densities that fit comfortably within Apple’s threshold for a “Retina” display.
Next gen iPhone is expected to sport an ultra-thin, almost bezel-less design form with rounded edges. iPhone 6 leaked images and news suggest that the device will sport an A8 processor, 1 GB RAM, Touch ID sensor, and an improved 8 megapixel camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). iPhone 6 is also expected to sport a durable sapphire display panel. Software wise, iPhone 6 will be powered by iOS 8 featuring new fitness apps with a focus on Healthbook app, an improved Maps and Siri experience, inter-app communication capabilities and more such refinements.
