Alleged iPhone 7 screen panels leak out: 4.7" 1080p and 5.5" 2K resolutions claimed
Uh oh, what do we have here - the alleged screen packages of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus splashed for the world to see. That's not the first time eventual parts of the iPhone 7 are making the rumor rounds, but an intriguing comment towards the panels pictured here says that the 4.7" one is with 1080p resolution, while the 5.5" LCD display is said to be a 2K screen, likely meaning a 1440p screen. The source also goes on to add that one of the packages is made by JDI, while the other's maker is not clearly visible.
This one is not hard to believe, as JDI has been an Apple screen supplier for a while, but the alleged bump in resolution ticks us off the wrong way, as there may be havoc rained on developers to adjust to new, higher resolutions, and an eventual heavier toll on battery life. Take this with a grain of salt, despite that the Chinese tech blog source that posted these has scored numerous credible Apple tips in the past.
