Apple iPhones have always been the king when it comes to making great displays. iPhones are always heavily praised for their extremely rich and vibrant displays. However, Apple has always refrained from higher resolutions. While its competitors like Samsung are providing QHD display for their flagships and Sony has even come up with a 4K display, Apple iPhone 7 is still stuck at a miserly low resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels with a picture density of 320 ppi. The iPhone 7 Plus, on the other hand, sports an FHD 5.5-inch display with a picture density of 401 ppi. All of this is going to change with the iPhone 8.
The much renowned KGI Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said that the Cupertino giant is for the first time in the last few years has been actually thinking of increasing the resolution of the iPhone.
According to Mr Ming, the upcoming iPhone 8 will sport a 5.8-inch OLED screen with a much higher resolution of 2800 x 1242 pixels and a picture density of 521 ppi which is almost double of that of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. However, only 5.15-inch will be usable screen and the remaining will be used for virtual buttons.
Despite the larger display, the iPhone 8 will have almost the same dimensions as that of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7. Few reports also suggest that the iPhone 8 will feature a Touch Bar like the MaBook Pro. Both Touch ID and the physical Home button will be eliminated and some “other biometric technology” might be adopted to replace it.
It remains to be seen whether the increase in resolution will bring a substantial improvement in the iPhone 8 display or not, but it can be said beyond doubt that the coming months are surely going to be extremely interesting as the veil over the iPhone 8 will slowly be uncovered.
