Rumors about the Apple iPhone 6 continue to emerge and it has been frequently suggested that the handset will include a much larger display. The iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C with their Retina 4-inch display don’t seem to be relevant with latest trends in the market. Multiple Android and Windows Phone 8 devices are boasting better display than Apple’s latest models.
It is believed that Apple will opt for the 5-inch full HD display for the iPhone 6, which is commonly used by high-end devices in 2013. The amount of pixel density and display size could give rivals like Samsung, Nokia, HTC and Sony a tough competition. However, there’s an expectation that high-end smartphones in 2014 will be equipped with 2k screen resolution, which again puts Apple one step behind the competition.
Competitors have been coming up with better and larger displays – Nokia Lumia 1520, Sony Xperia Z Ultra and Samsung Mega 6.3 already use display larger than 6-inch. There’s a possibility that upper mid-tier Android devices will begin start to use 5-inch 1080p display, when 2k panels are available commercially.
