Apple testing 3.95-inch 16:9 display in iPhone 5

0

As  always the case when discussing future Apple
hardware releases, there’s a lot of speculation as to what the company will
change in terms of the underlying components inside the case, as well as the
look of the device.

The
problem that Apple faces is that, it has some very recognizable and popular
devices in the form of the 
iPhone and iPad. The latest rumors surrounding what display the iPhone
5
 will use, suggest that Apple fully intends to stick with
the overall look of the current iPhone case. The big change comes in how big of
a display it can fit inside the existing case dimensions.

9To5Mac believes that Apple is intending to
replace the existing 3.5-inch display with a 3.95-inch model. Doing so would
surely require a wider case, but apparently that’s not what is going to happen.
Apple has instead decided to make the screen longer, 176 pixels longer in

fact.
The resolution of the display will also increase to 640 x 1136, whereas
currently the 
iPhone
4S
 uses a 640 x 960 resolution.

The
result of doing this is Apple can ship the iPhone 5 with a display that has an
aspect ratio very close to 16:9. That means full-screen video at native aspect
ratios is possible, giving users a much better viewing experience. A wider
display also means Apple can fit more on the screen, and is thought to be
planning a fifth row of home screen icons and the ability to view more content
at once in iOS 6.

Two
prototype iPhone 5 units carrying the larger 3.95-inch display are thought to
be undergoing testing at Apple right now. It’s unclear what the differences
between the two models are, but it is likely going to be slightly different
case designs, materials, or component layouts.

If a
larger 16:9 display is planned, and combined with the expected 
reduction in phone thickness to just 7.9mm, we could end up with an iPhone 5 that looks different
enough to the iPhone 4S to be classed as new. At the same time that display
will be the major selling point due to its higher resolution and media playback
improvements. But ultimately the “look” of the iPhone will be retained.

So I
wish you all will buy it. Thus we can expect more from apple.
