The iPhone 6s could arrive with a display comparable to an Android flagship from early 2013, according to a recent rumor. The new Apple flagship is expected to be unveiled tomorrow and if this information is accurate, the 4.7-inch display will arrive with a 1125 x 2000 resolution and 488 pixels-per-inch.
The rumor was brought to our attention by Phone Arena and also speculates that the iPhone 6s will have an A9 SoC with the CPU running at 1.8 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. The iPhone 6s Plus may have a 1242 x 2208 resolution.
These display specs would be a significant improvement on last year's iPhone 6, which housed a 750 x 1334 resolution display comparable to the LG Nexus 4 from 2012. The HTC One M7, HTC's flagship released in 2013, also has a 4.7-inch display, but with a 1080 x 1920 resolution and 468 ppi.
Apple's iPhone series tends to offer display definition below that of the top-end of current Android flagships. There are many questions concerning the benefit of high resolutions on such small displays as used in smartphones, as well as whether the toll they take on battery life is worth it. Perhaps this is why the new iPhone 6s may not house a display at the very forefront of smartphone technology.
