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...

Yes and improve your customer service while you are at it....oh, and please don't launch a phone with known faults, just to hit a launch deadline.

Is there going to be any difference taking the ppi beyond 326? I recall that anything beyond 320 ppi is not decernable by the human eye.

Yeah iPhone 5 already sport a nice display
but they should make it 4"3 in my opinion
hope they're new ui be modern and innovative also expecting changes in external design bcuz i personally like 4s design over 5

anyway best of luck apple you are a little behind of competition
bring something new real innovation to table...

Why would you want that? If apple closed its doors do you realize the negative impact the would have on the mobile industry?

1.Size - 4 inch, in 2013, with weird shape/aspect ratio? Very bad
2. Resolution- not even 720p, when 1080ps are being the minimum for flagship category phones.
3.Viewing Angles - are still not the best

1) weird aspect ratio? LOL it's the industry standard 16:9.
2) 326 ppi IS SHARP ENOUGH.
3) viewing angles ARE THE BEST.
Don't believe me? Head over to displaymate's extensive review of iPhone 5's display.
So now, there can be 3 reasons for your totally stupid comment
1) You are from Antarctica.
2) You're a butthurt fanboy.
3) You're a butthurt fanboy from Antarctica.

I assume he means a weird phone shape, ie everyone else was able to fit a 4+" 16:9 screen without making their phones taller. It's all in how Apple packages their earpiece, mic, speaker, etc.

I cracked up at your 3) btw.

The aspect ratio is retarded. 16:9 at 640 horizontal is absolutely ridiculous. 640 is about right for a 3:2 aspect ratio at 640.

So either the 16:9 aspect ratio makes the iphone 5 screen look like you are looking through two metal bars in a jail cell or mimics what it is like looking at a screen shaped as a ruler...

or the iphone 4s 3:2 aspect ration at 640 horizontal makes the 4s screen look like a squat midget or a tree stump.

You can only have it one way or the other, they both can't be ideal.

I would say it is the former and the iphone 5 screen is so tall and skinny at 16:9 that it is like squinting so that you can see a picture printed on a toothpick.

3:2 aspect ration is right for 640. 16:9 at 640 is retarded.

The iPhone 5 does have a excellent screen, so what if it isnt 5 inches...not everyone wants a screen that large. Its still very crisp and sharp, and brightness is very good as well. Color reproduction is very good as well, being quite close to true to life colors. Im sorry, but if a persons only argument is its small or has a low ppi, then you have a crappy argument.

It's not a crappy argument. People fail to realize that watching Lord of the Rings on a gameboy is just plain horrible, no matter how sharp and how many ppi that gameboy is. Of course size makes a difference.

The iphone 5 screen is pathetic. Don't believe me? Take panorama or stitch together some photos on a high megapixel camera. View it on the iphone 5 in landscape.

The picture will look like this

Literally. In fact, the iphone 5 screen is almost that bad.

vs.

|------------------|

|------------------|

The latter would win every single time for viewing experience and it doesn't matter how sharp or nice the colors are on the straight line, it is too tall and skinny to show off anything. So of course size and shape matters. Size is probably the most important factor actually.

Yep, 652 ppi Retina+ Display, a fingerprint sensor integrated into the capacitive home button coated with sapphire, thinner bezel, 13 MP camera, and iOS 7. Sounds more like an iPhone 6.

The amount of pixels double, not the ppi. Twice the ppi equals four times the amount of pixels.
