A rumour has appeared, stating that iPhone 6S Plus will have a Quad-HD screen, the first of its kind on any iPhone ever. If true, this should make the top-end smartphone wars far more interesting.
After years of claiming big phones weren’t something people were interested in, Apple shocked the world in 2014 by unveiling, well, a big phone, in iPhone 6 Plus. Now, rumours claim we’re due for a successor.
According to TechRadar, that successor (iPhone 6S Plus) may well have a new feature to better compete against the likes of Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
While iPhone 6S is rumoured to be equipped with the same 4.7-inch screen (which has a resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels) seen in the current iPhone 6, the iPhone 6S Plus is rumoured to be getting a 5.5-inch screen (same size as iPhone 6 Plus) with an updated resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
Yes, if the rumour is true, then iPhone 6S Plus is going to have an ultra-sharp Quad-HD screen, to allow it to compete more effectively with top-end Android phones that already flaunt that feature.
There’s no indication as to the veracity of this rumour, as yet, although some are pointing out that a screen with a resolution that high is going to put a serious toll on the battery in the next iPhone.
Whether this indicates that Apple has included an improved battery in the new phone, however, remains to be seen.
Until this is confirmed by Apple directly, we must treat this latest titbit of information as pure rumour. Nonetheless, we will be watching like hawks to see how this one develops. Stay tuned for more news!
