This latest batch comes from China's Wei Feng social network and claims Apple is going to double the pixel count for the next iPhone and that the side bezels will be thinner,...

Why not just use a 1080p screen?

Why make things so complicated?

No matter how many pixel they add it would mean nothing if they stay with 4" screen! Samsung will continue to dominate the market!

So they refuse to make the screen bigger, the work around would be to make the icons smaller?

the current highest pixel density is 469 ppi. i doubt a higher number than that will be anything different than that, but we'll see

Who really needs more than 300ppi on a phone anyway? Unless you look at your phone by a microscope.

Probably go to 2.25x more pixels - i.e. every 2x2 turns into a 3x3 totalling 1704x960. That would be much more easily upscalable and would put them back on the cutting edge of PPI - something they need as going multicoloured pprobably isn't going to be enough

can somebody actually explain to me what the point of it is, i mean the human eye on 99% of the worlds population cannot distinguish anything above 300+ppi anyway, my galaxy s3 was very clear, and to be honest i do not notice much change on my s4, but there other factors which help make the screen appear more vivid anyway, and my s4 screen is 1 inch bigger then iPhone, so is this just not pointless overkill? OK they seem to want to compete for PPI, but quite frankly they should be focused more on actual R&D rather then this, start from the ground up in my view because everything needs a rework, from the OS to the software, to codec support to connectivity between devices, to design, the whole phone needs a nice new design and feel with support for its customers.
