The iPhone 6′s killer feature: Quantum Dots with an Apple twist

“The iPhone 6’s display may be one of the most important features of the device, Forbes reports, especially for a handset that’s supposedly going to sport a bigger screen than the 4-inch screen found on Apple’s last iPhone generations,” Chris Smith reports for BGR. “According to the publication, Apple is putting extra effort in developing a screen that’s not only bigger in size, but also able to offer an improved visual experience, revealing that the iPhone 6 will make use of the same Quantum Dot (QD) technology found in the Kindle Fire HDX ‘but with an Apple twist.'”

“Apparently the iPhone 6 will ‘deliver a much wider color gamut’ than the Fire HDX, as Apple will not compromise on color gamut in favor of color reproduction accuracy like Amazon did,” Smith reports. “In addition to better colors, QD displays also require less power, can offer better brightness and improved lifetime. Furthermore, such displays could be used in flexible devices as well.”

Smith reports, “In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Tim Cook [said]… ‘What we’ve said is that until the technology is ready, we don’t want to cross that line… That doesn’t say we’ll never do it. We want to give our customers what’s right in all respects – not just the size but in the resolution, in the clarity, in the contrast, in the reliability. There are many different parameters to measure a display and we care about all those, because we know that’s the window to the software.'”

  1. The media continues with this ignorant nonsense about iPhone 6 having big screen. As it was said countless times before, iPhone will not really change screen site; bigger screen device will be separate model.
