Since both versions of the iPhone 6 are rumored to have a larger screen than its predecessor, Cupertino has to work on the screen resolution.
Apple journalist John Gruber has conducted a detailed analysis on the possible resolutions that the new smartphones could have.
Gruber said he has worked intensively in recent weeks on the possible display resolution of the iPhone 6 and reached the conclusion that the 4.7-inch device will feature a 1334 x 750 resolution with 326 pixels per inch, while the 5.5-inch phablet version could have a resolution of 2208 x 1242 with 461 pixels per inch.
This way, he argues, Apple may have to double or triple the pixels per inch of the existing applications so that developers don’t need to modify existing applications.
The analyst also commented on the rumors about a presumed resolution of 1472 × 828 for both models of the iPhone 6.
He believes that such a resolution on the 4.7 inches iPhone 6 would make every element smaller than 10%, while on the 5.5-inch device it would reduce the density of pixels per inch to only 307, slightly higher than the first-generation Retina Display.
Gruber stressed that he didn’t support his statements on insider information, but only on personal calculations.
The final confirmation may come on September 9th.
