There are so many rumors roaming all over the internet concerning Apple’s next-generation of iPhone. Some people say that the Fruit Company plans to add an “S” to the current iPhone 5 model while others suggest that Apple will try its luck with a low-cost device.
A new report suggests the fact that Apple is planning to increase the resolution for its future iPhone model up to 1.4 million pixels. This means almost double that the pixel count on the current iPhone 5. Now, Apple is thinking bigger for its next-gen iPhone and iPad models. Rumors suggest that that Apple’s next handset, which it is known as “iPhone 5S” or “iPhone 6”, will preserve the 4-inch display as the current iPhone 5, but the Retina resolution will be doubled and it will reach 1.4 million pixels.
A 1704 x 960 display will keep the aspect ration the same for ease the app transition. However, critics still question where Apple would source the screen since panels of that size and resolution are not pretty common.
The report also claims that the iPhone 5S will show an even thinner bezel than the current design, suggesting the fact that Apple plans to borrow some elements from its popular mini tablet, the iPad mini.
Apple introduced the “Retina display” branding for its screens along with the release of iPhone 4 in 2010. The respective device features a 3.5-inch display with a resolution of 960×640 pixels, a doubled resolution compared to its predecessor. In what concerns the current iPhone 5, the device has a pixel count of nearly 730,000 pixels per inch on a 4-inch display.
When first introduced, the Retina display became a market-leading feature for the iPhone. With time, other Smartphone manufacturers, such as HTC, tested the amazing resolution. Now, HTC One offers a 4.7-inch display with a 1080p-resolution, which is the equivalent of a full high-resolution television. This means more than 2 million pixels, more precisely, higher than Apple’s iPhone 5.
The last part of the report came to attest previous rumors. Apple will start shipping for the next device starting with September. As Apple’s CEO suggested in a press conference, the Fruit Company is planning to reveal multiple new products in coming months throughout 2014.
In the same time, Apple plans to consider a so-called “iPad maxi” with a larger screen than the 9.7-inches of the current iPad mode. The maxi version will reach around 12.9-inches. A bigger tablet can be seen as a replacement for textbooks in classrooms while competing with ultraportable notebooks for those who need a portable device.
