iPhone 6 Retina Rumors

As we already know, the iPhone 6 will be coming in two larger versions than any of its predecessors, with the smaller 4.7 inch display version likely arriving first during the September 9 announcement.  With this larger display, many this week are speculating that this could mean the first two retina display iPhones.   Initial reports pegged the resolutions for both screens will be 1704 x 960 and 1472 x 828   So while there’s a good chance the next iPhones will come standard with retina display,  BGR also reported on info provided by Apple blogger John Gruber about what may actually be the case:

“According to Gruber, who claims that he doesn’t have any inside information on the resolution he proposes, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 should have a 1334 x 750-pixel resolution (326 PPI), while the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 should have a 2208 x 1242-pixel (461 PPI) display… The 1472 x 828 resolution is “too small for 4.7, too crude for 5.5,” Gruber says. At that resolution, the 4.7-inch display would render objects smaller than on the iPhone 5 family. The resolution “works” on a 5.5-inch display, but the pixel-per-inch (PPI) ratio would drop to “only” 307, which is awfully close to the 300 PPI that Apple deems Retina worthy.”
