“Apple is testing multiple next-generation iPhones, and we have independently heard that at least one of these devices sports a brand new display,” Chuck Remington reports for 9to5Mac. “For the iPhone 4, Apple took the iPhone display to new heights with the incredible 640 x 960 Retina Display. The display has always been 3.5 inches measured diagonally and a 3:2 aspect ratio. All of that is about to change.”
“We know of two next-generation iPhones in testing with a larger display: the iPhone 5,1 and iPhone 5,2,” Remington reports. “Both of these phones sport a new, larger display that is 3.95 inches diagonally. Apple will not just increase the size of the display and leave the current resolution, but will actually be adding pixels to the display. The new iPhone display resolution will be 640 x 1136. That’s an extra 176 pixels longer of a display. The screen will be the same 1.94 inches wide, but will grow to 3.45 inches tall.”
Remington reports, “In terms of hardware other than the new display, we’ve heard that both of these prototypes definitely include a home button and the previously-rumored smaller dock connector.”
