Many months have passed and many rumours have been thrown around, but with Apples next phone still not out in the wild, speculation is still in overdrive. The latest rumour comes from 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, a well known industry source for Apple product leaks and information, often cited for reporting features before the official announcement, so we couldn’t help but take note of his latest bit of information.
He says that the so-called iPhone 6 will features an impressive screen resolution of 1704 x 960, that’s a 50% increase over the iPhone 5s’ screen resolution. this increase in resolution fits in very well with other rumours, which say that Apples new handset will come with larger screen sizes, more screen real estate will need more pixels to maintain the sharp resolution the iPhone is renowned for.
The pixel count will be increased, but so too will the pixel density. The iPhone 5s currently packs 326ppi, but the rumoured 4.7inch and 5.5inch editions of the iPhone 6 would bring 416ppi and 356ppi pixel densities, respectively.
As always Apple have declined to comment on the report.
