Rumor Claims That iPhone 5S Will Get A Thinner Bezel And Next-Gen Retina Display


A new report by Chinese-language Weiphone claims that Apple is planning to increase the resolution of a future iPhone to 1.5 million pixels – doubling the pixel count of the current iPhone – and that the next iPhone will have even a thinner bezel than its current design, suggesting that Apple will borrow design elements from the iPad Mini.


The report claims that Apple’s next-gen handset, weather it be known as the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 will feature the next-gen Retina Display, will have the same 4-inch display as the iPhone 5 and will begin shipping in September. The current iPhone 5 has a pixel count of nearly 730,000 thanks to its screen resolution of 1,136 by 640 pixels. That works out to 326 pixels per inch on the 4-inch display.

In addition, the report claimed that the iPhone 5 will have an even thinner bezel than its current design, suggesting Apple will borrow design elements from its popular iPad mini.
