Still not full HD

iPhone 6 to feature a 1704×960 display?




iphone6-dummy2You probably saw this one coming, but alongside the new size options in the iPhone 6, Apple is also bumping up the Retina display from 1136×640 in the iPhone 5/5C and 5S to a 1704×960 display.

The new display resolution is likely because of the new size options the iPhone 6 is rumoured to have. It’s also likely a response to all the Android phones out there with “full HD” 1080p displays, though the new rumored resolution still isn’t 1080p. Of course, as with all the new screen resolutions that have been introduced over the years, this will require developers to rewrite their apps to support it.

Going further into rumour territory, iOS 8 supposedly will feature up to five horizontal icons with this new resolution but the only source we have on that one right now is China’s slightly dubious Weibo.
