The iPhone 5S display may sport two times the pixel count of the iPhone 5, come with thinner bezel

0. phoneArena 28 May 2013, 03:50 posted on

If Apple managed to score enough yield with Sharp's IGZO displays, which allow record pixel densities in a thin and light package which has a very low power consumption, there might be some merit to this rumor, and the source says it will enter production next month for a release in September, which jibes with the launch rumors we've heard so far...

Yawn, PPI war is over and already won by HTC one, Xperia Z, Samsung S4.

Apple is trying to catchup somehow by increasing resolution, not exactly pioneering anymore.

Trolling isn't going to change the bias around here.

Yes, by my definition popping by to dash off 2-3 words that add nothing to the discussion is trolling.

Double standards are the android fanboy way mxy. Not the android user, the "fanboy".

There is nothing like 'ppi wars'. iPhone 5 was introduced last year, whereas all the flagships with higher FHD resolutions were launched this year!
If apple goes with higher ppi, it's not about winning any kind of *war*, but increasing the standard of their already awesome display.

If this is true it's still ridiculous. Sounds like apple will use it as a selling point again. But it's double the pixel amount, not double the pixel density.

Don't all the major manufacturers use it as a selling point? I believe they all touted FHD screens as a selling point along with the pixel density. Apple isnt doing anything the others dont do. I know several samsung fanboys that bragged about the S4's FHD screen and higher ppi over Apple so its no different the other way around.

And Steve Jobs will get trolled from his theory "Normal human eyes cannot see detect difference with 300+ ppi"

How exactly will he be trolled? He just stated a fact, which is indeed true, but he didn't say "We'll not make products with a higher resolution than 326 ppi".

If you claim to believe something, you better live by that. Not sure if Apple is doing that. If above 326ppi is usless then Apple is a fool to make one with higher PPI
