The next iPhone’s display will be twice as crisp and sharp as the current-generation handset, rumours suggest, ahead of the phone’s appearance later this year.
With weeks to go until WWDC gives us our first glimpse at the software that will power the seventh-generation iPhone, a Chinese site claims to have gleaned some gen about the phone’s display.
According to an unnamed source, who appears to be connected to the Wei Feng Network, the iPhone variously dubbed the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 will retain the four-inch screen size of the existing edition but will double the number of pixels from 730,000 to 1.5 million.
The same report also corroborates existing chatter that the phone will feature a smaller bezel and co-opt elements of its design from the iPad mini.
Fresh rumours from the iUnderground come as Apple is set to showcase a new 'flatter' version of the iOS operating system that will be front and centre of the next iPhone at its developers conference next month.
The iPhone 6 itself isn’t expected to show up until September when, depending on how you read, it may or may not be accompanied by a cheaper, plastic edition of Apple’s all-conquering kit.
