Rumor: New iPhone Will Have Less Than A 4-Inch Display

Posted May 23, 2012

There are rumors that the Apple iPhone 5 will have a screen that is larger than 4 inches, but a source with 9to5Mac has heard that the iPhone 5 will have a display that is 3.999 inches diagonally. The iPhone 5 prototypes are floating around Apple’s headquarters in thick, locked shells to disguise the exterior design to “undisclosed” employees. Apple will increase the size of the display and leave the current resolution, but pixels will be added to the display. The new iPhone display resolution will be 640 x 1136 according to 9to5Mac’s sources. This makes the iPhone 5 176 pixels longer. The screen will be the same at 1.9632 inches wide, but it will be made 3.484 inches tall. The new resolution is close to a 16:9 screen ratio.
