It is now almost a known fact that the next iPhone will come with a 4.7 inch screen but its resolution wasn't known. But 9To5Mac claims that the next iPhone might feature a display with a resolution of 1704 x 960 pixels which will result in to a screen sharpness of around 416 ppi. This will bring the iPhone to other flagship smartphones from Android and Windows Phone. Here is a table which depicts how the display of the next Apple iPhone 6 might compete with current generation of competing smartphones in terms of screen size, screen resolution and screen sharpness.

Oppo Find 72560 x 14405.5534

Samsung Galaxy S51920 x 10805.1432
Sony Xperia Z21920 x 10805.2424

Looking at the screen resolution, it appears that it will stay a 16:9 widescreen display so you won't notice any black bars which were visible when the iPhone 5 was released. But the app developers will have to update the graphics in their applications so that they don't look blurred. Do you think that increasing the screen size will help Apple in gaining more users?
