Developers and analysts tell us that a bigger iPhone screen size is sensible, and may arrive in Apple’s next refresh. But simply how massive can subsequent iPhone screen size be?
On Thursday morning, Reuters reported that Apple’s next iPhone would escort a 4.6-inch show, considerably larger than the 3.5-inch show the phone currently sports. If true, a show that size would place the iPhone on par with big-screen stunners just like the HTC Titan 2, that encompasses a 4.7-inch show, and therefore the common four.5-inch SamsungGalaxy S II.
“I would be shocked if Apple didn’t launch an iPhone with a bigger show,” Canalys principal analyst Pete Cunningham told Wired. it'd be convenient if a bigger iPhone maintained this Retina show resolution of 960 x 640, Tsepko said, and if Apple kept pixel density at 300-plus (the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S have 326 ppi displays) visually it'd be “magic.” Telfer thinks the screen resolution would scale proportionally to the iPhone’s current specs.
While a 4-inch or larger iPhone will surely edges users, it'd additionally create an additional burden for iOS developers.
