iPhone 5S to have double the Retina display resolution ?
Apple's impending next-gen iPhone's resolution will make its predecessor pale in comparison, per a new report. Apparently, the iPhone 5S/iPhone 6 will have double the resolution of the iPhone 5's Retina display.
The iPhone 5 currently has a pixel count of 730,000 with a display resolution of 1136 x 640 i.e. 326 ppi, but the next-gen iPhone will tout 1.5 million pixels.
The latest report is courtesy of Chinese site Weiphone which cites reliable insiders as its source.
"We have just got insiders broke the news revealed about the long-awaited Apple's new products - the next generation of iPhone news. According to sources, iPhone 5S (or iPhone 6) or to have a more narrow screen frame, is now preparing, will ship in September. In addition, the product also has a screen 1.5 million pixels, compared to nearly 730,000 iPhone 5 the number of pixels, if not the screen size continues to increase, the resolution will be greatly improved (translated)," notes Weiphone.
MacRumors' notes that the iPhone 5s or iPhone 6 is "to have a more narrow screen frame" which is in the works and "will ship in September." Moreover, the next-gen Apple smartphone "also has a screen 1.5 million pixels, compared to nearly 730,000 iPhone 5 the number of pixels, if not the screen size continues to increase, the resolution will be greatly."
The Weiphone report does not disclose how Apple will manage to double the pixels on the next-gen iPhone, given that it will retain the same 4-inch screen size as the iPhone 5. One method as MacRumors suggests could be to increase the iPhone 5's pixel density by a factor of 1.5 in each dimension, yielding a 1704 x 960 display which would include 1.6 million pixels at a density of approximately 489 pixels per inch."
However, if an increase in pixel density were to happen, a major drawback would be that developers would have to tweak apps to fit the change in pixel count.
