Earlier this morning, we brought you word about how an analyst predicted that the next generation iPhone (let’s just call it the iPhone 5 for now) will sport a HD front-facing camera alongside a wider-aperture camera, and roughly a couple of hours later, Mingchi Kuo, who is an analyst with KGI, talks about the iPhone 5 featuring a 4.08″ display. He says that this change from the previous 3.5″ display to a “4.08-inch in-cell IPS panel screen with a display resolution of 1,136 x 640 and 500-nit brightness” will also carry with it an aspect ratio of 16:9. Sounds impressive? Just to put things into perspective, it is still a far cry from LG’s 5″ Full HD mobile device display, albeit the effort from the South Korean company remains a prototype at time of publishing.
Should Kuo’s prediction come true, then it would mean the Retina Display’s pixel density will drop to 320ppi compared to the 326ppi that the iPhone 4S currently enjoys. This is not that much a degradation in quality, but it might be interesting to note that Apple is focusing on other aspects of the handset relatively speaking to the rest of its competition. Another thing about the iPhone 5 would be a predicted 1400mAh battery thereabouts, which is not much of a change from its predecessor, too.RELATED
