Rumor: the screen of next iPhone will have twice as many pixels

28 May, 2013
That would mean a resolution of about 905 x 1606, which would result in a total of 1.5M surface pixels.

but why???? The threshold for human eye is 300-325 ppi. More- is just a PR bullcrap.

Apple should reduce the screen size to 3.5" or even 3" in iPhone 6. The smaller the screen, the more Apple Fans love it.

This is a very bad news to all iphone users because they defended that the right size would be 3.5" and 4" and now trying to change the standard size? Where is apple fanboy here to hear your comment.

Apple phones are still the best phone around, unlike the slappy adroid that the only advantage over apple is that adroid can use torrent. Nothing more :)

wasnt Apple the same one that said anything higher than what the retina display has is unnecessary? smh now all of a sudden they need to double it smh hahahaha

Professor Frink, 28 May 2013All Apple has to do for the 5s is simple really, Expand memory, ... moreWell then why doesn't Tim Cook step down and make you the CEO? You're obviously much better at this than the hundreds of highly-paid designers at Apple.

cdnj, 28 May 2013Hahahaha! That's exactly right! They lost in a smartphone race ... moreReally? If you mean by "lost" making about twice the money of any other company then they have indeed lost a long time ago. Remember in the end, it's who is making money, not who has the best technology. I learned that the hard way about 20-some years ago when the technically inferior Mac beat out the Amiga line of computers in the marketplace. Where is the Amiga today? In the sands of time.

How about this one..

pintoz, 28 May 2013Because they CAN NOT its a technical difficulty for Apple to ove... moreIt might have twice as many pixels but most likely it will still get stuck in their outdated UI and the just add one more row of icons.

pintoz, 28 May 2013Because they CAN NOT its a technical difficulty for Apple to ove... moreHahahaha! That's exactly right! They lost in a smartphone race three years ago. Now they are just like Nokia catching up the game.

Prashant, 28 May 2013Anything above 440ppi will look the same.I said the same with the Retina 326ppi resolution when iPhone 4 came to life... but something happened to the people... they want more.. they want 5000 x 5000 dpi on a 5 inch screen. Freud said that man make things the extension of his dick. Thats why bigger cars, bigger phones, bigger TVs... Thats the answer... men feel smaller than others... they want bigger things to show.

I stopped reading at 4.2". I might consider if it is 4.5".

useless information... nobody wants U

Why can't they just make a display with "normal resolution" and make the job of devs less annoying?

  • Rajitha

Now tell me, Who is gonna look into a phone display with a Microscope? and Who can count these pixels when keeps it at 10 inches away from the eye???

What for?
useless..

Just as long as they were his open standards and he could make money out of them was the bit he neglected to mention.

Sheilamj Buckley, 28 May 2013That was funny lolPerhaps they will sell you an iMagnfier (about 200 patents pending no doubt!) magnifying glass for £49.99 and claim they invented it and try and sue everyone else who has ever made a magnifying glass.

Tom-Helge, 28 May 2013Why not just use a 1080p screen? Why make things so complicated?For you, what is complicated?

Tom-Helge, 28 May 2013Why not just use a 1080p screen? Why make things so complicated?Because they CAN NOT its a technical difficulty for Apple to overcome. Now ppl can see how iOS is so limited and closed. Apple started the PPI game and now they lost the game.
