iPhone 5 To Feature 4-inch Display At 1,136 x 640 Resolution And 326 Pixel Density
Sources have confirmed that the new iPhone is going to feature a 4-inch touchscreen at a resolution of 1136 x 640 that will eventually lead to a pixel density of 326ppi. This means that the iPhone will have the biggest pixel density in the 4-inch category, though analysts say that this fact is irrelevant because there aren’t too many smartphones with a 4-inch display.
Industry sources claim that the new iPhone will have a half-an-inch bigger display than the iPhone 4S, and that the touchscreen will be based on the so-called in-cell display technology. The suppliers for the screen panels will be LG Display, Sharp, and Japan Display Inc.
It is said that this time Apple wants to make sure that there won’t be any shipment delays due to high demand therefore the suppliers have already increased the display production in order to comply with the company’s demands.
It was already rumored that the iPhone 5 will have a 4-inch display, but it was believed that the smartphone will have the same resolution as the iPhone 4S. Still, there are many analysts who believe that Apple will opt for a HD touchscreen and that the resolution will be bigger than 1136 x 640 in order to compete against the likes of HTC, Samsung and others in terms of resolution.
Analysts are also expecting Apple’s competitors to release new 4-inch smartphones by the end of the year in order to provide valid alternatives to the iPhone during this year’s holidays season. The new iPhone will most likely be announced during a special event on September 12th, and will become available as of September 21st.
