When it comes to the display of Apple’s smartphones, Apple has never really been one to play the numbers game. They have never bothered to market their iPhones or iPads using display resolution figures, instead choosing to use their own terms like “Retina” to denote that a display is sharp.
However at the end of the day, we guess those numbers do matter to consumers who are making comparisons, and according to the latest rumor, the iPhone 6 is said to pack a QHD display. For those unfamiliar, a QHD resolution would effectively mean 2560×1440. Assuming this is true, it would put the iPhone 6’s display in contention with the likes of the recently announced LG G3.
These rumors are apparently sourced for “Apple employees” from Hong Kong, which in itself sounds pretty dubious so perhaps approaching this with some skepticism might be the way to go. So far what we do know about the iPhone 6 is that it will apparently come in two different sizes: 4.7-inches and 5.5-inches.
It is unclear if the same resolution would be applied to both models, but if it were, the 4.7-inch model would yield sharper results which could make it a better buy than the 5.5-inch model, which is rumored to cost $100 more. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think? Could Apple make the jump to QHD with the iPhone 6, or is that simply wishful thinking?
