Apple’s next-generation iPhones may receive quite the resolution boost — with a new report coming out of China claiming that the forthcoming iPhone 6s handset will boast a Full HD display, while its larger sibling the iPhone 6s Plus will feature a dazzling 2K display.
If true, this would allow the iPhone to better compete against some of the high-end flagship Android handsets, which routinely offer 2K or “Quad HD” displays.
Currently the iPhone 6 has a resolution of 1334×750, and the iPhone 6 Plus boasts a Full HD resolution.
Although the difference between a Full HD and 2K display isn’t massive on a day-to-day basis, since the human eye can’t see the individual pixels, it is very noticeable when playing high-resolution video and other content — with a noticeably sharper image.
This rumor should be taken with a pinch of salt for now, but if true a 2K display makes a lot more sense as an exclusive for the larger iPhone 6s Plus than the previously-rumored Force Touch.
Other reports about the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus claim it will include Force Touch (for both devices), twice the RAM of its predecessors, a significant processor upgrade, 12MP camera, new rose-gold color option, sapphire display for the 6s Plus, strengthened shell, and improved Touch ID.
It is also likely that Apple will finally ditch the 16GB entry level models which have been grossly inadequate for some time now.
If all of this (or even most of it) comes to pass, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus really may turn out to be the biggest incremental iPhone “s” upgrade we’ve ever seen.
