Display panels that are apparently bound for the upcoming iPhone 7 handsets have appeared on Chinese social media — suggesting that the larger iPhone 7 Plus will boast a 2K or Quad HD display.
Provided that’s true, this means a significant bump up from the 1080p panels currently used for the present-generation iPhone 6s. It also means that, contrary to popular opinion, iPhone users won’t be waiting until 2017 to get superior displays.
In addition to the 2K display for the iPhone 7 Plus, today’s Weibo leak also suggests that the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 7 will include at lower resolution 1080p display. It additionally signals that at least one of these display panels is being made by JDI, whose name is visible in the picture.
As always, readers should take these rumors with a pinch of salt (silicon?) until Apple announces something definite about its new iPhones. However, with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus unveiling now just one month away, we’re seeing more and more leaks emerge online.
