    I don't understand how it's going to be a late 2016 smartphone with that screen?
    It's not fair and bad as having 16GB as base model in a flagship phone.
    1080p would be amazing for the 4.7
    Even tho it isn't 2K or 4K it's at least fair enough for 2 more years.
    720 is a joke.....

    The iPhone 7 will have a 1080p display. My prediction is this.

    1. Same size screens 4.7 and 5.5 inch. Will be latest gorilla glass 5 with 1080p screen.

    2. Slight overall improved design change, cooler looking and even more thought out.

    3. Will rock 3GB of ram


    4. Water resistant


    5. Light shock resistance


    6. Added speaker for richer more stereo sound withbass boosted some

    7. New improved keyboard (something special up Apples sleeve)

    8. Siri pro ( with more access to more areas of the iPhone we aren't currently seeing)

    9... And more....

    I cant see it being an issue for them to make it 1080p but the real question is would you notice a difference on a screen that size of 4.7? I don't know.

    Hoping for that as well. It's inconceivable that Apple would still be making 750p iPhones and charging $700 for them when you can get 2K android phones these days for less than $500... but then again, its Apple

    No why would they update it. Screen res for both will remain until 2017.

    It sucks that Apple still hasn't provided a way for apps to adjust to any screen size and resolution yet. Or, if they have, developers aren't using it. It's annoying how every time Apple releases a new phone with a different resolution, apps look blurry until each developer updates their apps. You don't have this issue on Android, or even macOS or Windows.

    What is the chances?
    I think quite unlikely.

    There is more to screen quality than pixels, just as it is with camera and cpu cores/ghzs. There is more to it.

    Iphones have great screens

    I notice that the screen looks grainy when displaying lots of text, so yes, I probably would notice an improvement. I have an SE and on that screen the resolution is well matched to the screen size but on the iPhone 6 and 6s I think they could do better. But the battery would take a significant hit, which is likely why they never did bump up the resolution.

    There is a strongly confirmed rumor that the upcoming Note 7 will feature a battery saving option of running a 720p display resolution. So I think for the 6/6S it's been all about the battery. That device was just at an awkward size for them to optimize the battery and screen display in relation to the chassis size. The SE and the Plus had advantages there.

    If they could make the 6/6S/7 thicker, they would open up their options but then Jony and some other thin phone fanatics would have a fit.

    Samsung over saturates the colors so it looks real colorful but in real life things aren't like that. They do make nice screens though.

    They don't over saturates the colors, they are just using OLED display. Every OLED display is like that, bright and sharp.

    less battery life if they go for 1080p and their batteries are already pretty tiny.

    Not night and day, but I can tell the difference in screen quality between a 6 and 6 Plus. It's a qualitative difference. So I'd say yeah.

    Also bumping up the resolution would help with VR, up that close to the screen you really notice small differences in resolution.

    What do you mean tiny?

    Samsungs is 3000 mAh

    iPhone 6s is 1750 mAh

    We probably won't get a screen quality bump until 2017.

    Still over saturated because of that's not how they appear off screen.

    What I would like to see is 1080p on iPhone and QHD on iPhone Plus models. Given the size to resolution ratio, I think that would be perfect. I would say we could be more likely to see this for the 2017 redesign but we could see it this year because they are in need of a reason for people to upgrade.

    Samsungs screens are oversaturated for whatever reason. I took landscaping pictures with a couple Samsungs and the photos colors are un-naturally bright. My iPhone is more true to what I see. I wouldn't mind 1080p though.

    Owner of a 6+ and S7 edge... I swap sims between the 2... fan of both. I have to say in the indoors, the the iPhone colors looks better... and see the same comparing with the 6s+. However, big difference when viewing outdoors under the bright sun. I have to find shade to view or read anything on my 6+. I'm more than happy with my s7 edge screen... only notice differences when I do side by side comparison. I wouldn't mind if Apple uses OLED screens... and wouldn't complain about the color differences.

    I think new color gamut d3, like ipad pro 9.7 and 5k iMac, is a given
