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...

what's the sense having that high pixel density on a slender 4 inch screen, make a new design and new software maybe then you can enjoy it then instead of looking at a lame grid on a 4 inch screen.

love apple but they need to change their damn design now

I'm just speaking to the state of the art. The tightest LCD display on the market right now is the 4.7" 469 PPI on the HTC One. Why does anyone think that in the next few months, Apple will suddenly achieve 600+ PPI? And why would they bother when there's little to gain in terms of clarity? Apple doesn't compete in the same spec war as Android manufacturers.

That's why I'm more willing to bet this is a mixed rumor regarding the iPhone 6, not the 5S. Just like they were getting our hopes up about a bigger screen when the 4S arrived.

I think as the rest of the industry including minor players like WP and BB have moved up in screen size, Apple will need to increase to ~4.3" for the iPhone 6, and maybe that's when we'll see a higher PPI screen.

Dude I saw the general zod preview at the hangover 3 and was simply amazed. I will be first in line for that and world war z. If you haven't seen the hangover, do yourself a favor and go. Allen and chow are simply hilarious.

I do think the iPhone is a better package for them little lady hands. I wouldn't buy one myself, but I had no problem convincing my wife to upgrade from an iPhone 4 to a 5. At least it's an improvement!

Bite your tongue, that's blaspheme!!!

Apple needs to never 'change their design', it will always be the teeny-tiny, overpriced, delicately glued together, fragile but sleek, under-performing and overly-hyped (God, where are my binoculars to view the screen), usable only on wi-fi, little gadget that will ever exist.

Yup. M a big fan of hangover can't wait for the finale. Simply love Zach Galifianakis but I enjoy super hero movies tiny bit more.

BTW, I was referring to Christopher Nolan's Superman aka Man of Steel. The trailer is awesome check it out:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6DJcgm3wNY

And nobody's offering a ~4" mid-high-end Android to compare. The Moto Razr M is the closest I could come up with size-wise, but the qHD PenTile screen can't compete. And at least I know the iPhone 5 will continue to get software updates for the next 3-4 years.

I get a lot of flak here for saying it, but for some customers, the iPhone IS the best choice.

I hate to break the party... But remember guys there's nothing new that Apple can bring to the table, which Android hasn't done already... instead it will play catch up to Android but with new terms to the Features... Just my two cents opionion...

Learn how to do math, man. Two times the total pixel count won't double the ppi. You'd have to quadruple the pixel count to double the ppi. In other words, you'd have to double the number of pixels for both the length & the width. No way Apple finds a 4" panel that is 2272x1280. By double, they're saying it will be 1704x960.

I agree roldefol

I despise Apple. I want absolutely nothing to do with the company or it's products. BUT.. I can be objective and recognize that they do put out good products.

The fact is that the iPhone appeals to a whole lot of consumers and is the best choice for many... hence the word CHOICE!

I think the upcoming S4 Mini should fill the gap - smaller phone with all the great S4 features.
