Given that the screen is taller, will it lose the retina display?
Not a chance.
It definitely won't lose any resolution.
It might lose a hair of pixel density, but without doing any math, it should still be over 300ppi. Like maybe 325 vs. 326.
edit: actually running the math, rumors say 1136x640 on a 3.54" screen, exactly the same 326ppi.
The pixel density won't change. It will be the exact same.
This. They're not spreading a given amount of pixels over a taller screen, they're adding additional rows of pixels and the density will remain the same, keeping retina...
No. They're adding pixels to the top/bottom as well as increasing the screen size. The screen ratio will change from 3:2 to 16:9, though.
Same PPI, with 4".
The resolution will be changing to keep the pixel density the same.
It'll still be 320-330 ppi "retina"
But it'll be changed to 1136x640 to do that, that on the current iphone would be like 400-500 ppi.
Yes, and it will be black and white, too.
I am confused. How can constant density equal a change in ppi? Ppi is density. What am I missing?
He was just saying that if the same 3.5" screen got the extra pixels the new iPhone will have, it's ppi/density would increase. But since the new screen will be 4" it'll remain the same.
Ok goi it. Thanks
A screens resolution and screen size makes its pixel density.
So a 1280x720 32" tv has a higher ppi than a 1280x720 50" because the same amount of pixels would have to be spread out more.
If apple wants to keep the same 326 ppi in the next iphone ( which they probably will) with the increased screen size they will need to increase the amount of pixels from 960 x 640 to 1136 x 640 ( or around that ), more pixels but because of the increase screen size the pixels will still be 326 ppi
