A research firm has weighed in with screen-size predictions for the much-trumpeted iPhone phablet and iWatch, as the public gears up for hugely anticipated, wholly new product lines from the House of Cupertino later this year.
DisplaySearch, which specialises in number-crunching and analysis of the screen market for gadgets, predicts that Apple is likely to opt for a mega 5.5-inch display with 1,920-by-1,080 pixel resolution.
That would blur the lines between the iPhone and iPad and would mark Apple’s debut into the market for larger smartphones that's currently dominated by Android.
By way of comparison, the current-gen iPhone’s screen comes in at a comparatively compact four inches.
DisplaySearch, whose record with Apple-related forecasts is pretty impressive, has also weighed in with its two-penneth on the iWatch.
If you set any store by their crystal-ball gazing, the tech giant’s first-ever smartwatch will feature a flexible AMOLED screen with dimensions of between 1.3-inches or 1.6-inches.
Apple has never before used AMOLED screens. In what would be something of a twist, the technology is closely associated with Samsung, which has favoured AMOLED displays for its Galaxy S range of smartphones since time immemorial.
