iPhone 5S, the next generation model of iPhone is expected to come in same physical look as that of its predecessor. However, this new report that has surfaced in China claims the next generation iPhone could come with a new display that offers twice as many pixels and a thinner bezel.
The “insiders” who have provided these details to WeiPhone.com claims the iPhone 5S will pack a staggering 1.5 million pixels display. The current iPhone 5 retina display has 730,000 pixels.
According to sources, iPhone 5S (or iPhone 6) or to have a more narrow screen frame, is now preparing, will ship in September. In addition, the product also has a screen 1.5 million pixels, compared to nearly 730,000 iPhone 5 the number of pixels, if not the screen size continues to increase, the resolution will be greatly improved.
At this point, we are a little skeptical, but if true, app developers will again have to go through the trouble of optimizing the visuals for the greater pixels display. A higher resolution display will give Apple a better chance to compete against the 1080p display making their way into the competitors’s latest flagships, however.
The report also claims that the iPhone 5S will feature thinner bezels down the side of its display. We advise you to please take this report with a grain of salt.
Doubling the pixels count means that Apple would need to add more powerful graphics and increase the memory bandwidth to handle it, which in turn would result in poorer battery life. We’re confident that an incremental upgrade such as iPhone 5S won’t be getting such drastic hardware changes. However, these all seem like the kind of changes we’d see for the iPhone 6 instead.
iPhone 5S is expected to bring better cameras, faster processor and it is also rumored to feature fingerprint sensing technology. Apple will most likely unveil the next generation iPhone this Fall. [CultofMac]
