Rumors about the alleged iPhone 6 have been circulating all over the internet from the past few weeks. We’ve seen a handful of leaked images of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 dummy, which were created based on the leaked schematics and other information available on the internet. There are still a few months left before we could see the real thing, but there’s no stopping the rumor mill from revealing information about the purported handset, no matter if it’s correct or not.
We’ve heard rumors already that Apple is working on a larger iPhone, but the resolution it will bring with it is still a mystery. According to a new report from 9to5Mac, the purported iPhone 6 will come with a considerably larger display resolution of 1704 x 960 pixels. The report suggests the 4.7-inch iPhone with the above mentioned resolution will come with a pixel density of 416 ppi while the 5.5-inch model will come with a lower 356 ppi with the same resolution.
The resolution has been in discussion from some time as it would also effect developers as well. If Apple uses the same resolution as the iPhone 5/5S/5C, it would make the transition for developers easy. However, if its bumped a little higher, it would require some work from the developers to make their apps compatible with the large resolution display. From a developer’s perspective, the display resolution of the iPhone 5/5s/5c is 568 x 320, but 9to5Mac reports Apple will tripe the base resolution in the larger iPhone in both width and height, and describes it as 3X mode.
There’s a lot of speculation going around about the launch of the purported iPhone 6, with rumors hinting at the possible launch of the 4.7-inch version in August, followed by 5.5-inch iPhone 6 in September. The report also suggest that Apple may drop some information about their next-generation mobile operating system iOS 8 at WWDC 2014 next month.
