iPhone 6 to come with a boosted 1,704×960 pixels Retina Display

It is not before September that we are likely to see the all new iPhone, most likely to be called the iPhone 6. The device has not even gone into production yet but a quick look over the internet and you will see plenty of mockups of the device that are floating around. In fact, I was shocked to see some of the videos on Youtube which did an in depth analysis and comparison of a mock up or a prototype of the device to existing phones like iPhone 5s or even the HTC M8.

The latest bit of news floating around the iPhone 6 is that the device will be rocking a 1704×960 pixels display which is most likely to be a 4.3 inch if measured diagonally. This would be the very first time when Apple would be enhancing the display resolution on the device post releasing the iPhone 5 with a resolution of 640×1136. The iPhone 5s followed the same display size and the resolution as the previous device.

However, with the increased size of increase, this increased resolution makes sense. According to 9to5Mac the iPhone 6 would be using a pixel tripling mode to enhance the display.

The report goes on to analyze the tripling mode and explains:

This means that Apple will likely be tripling the aforementioned “base resolution” (568 x 320) of the iPhone screen in both directions, and that the iPhone screen resolution will be scaled with an increase of 150% from the current 2X resolution of 1136 x 640. Of course, Apple tests several different iPhones and display technologies, so it is possible that Apple chooses to take another route for display specifications for the 2014 iPhone upgrade.

1704 likely the new 1136:

568 tripled is 1704 and 320 tripled is 960, and sources indicate that Apple is testing a 1704 x 960 resolution display for the iPhone 6. Tripling the iPhone 5?s base resolution would mean that the iPhone 6?s screen will retain the same 16:9 aspect ratio as the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c.

While obviously, none of this has come out officially from Apple, but we would be really happy if Apple did indeed retained its 16:9 aspect ratio screen as that would most likely mean the phone would not be very broad and despite increased length, one could have some hope of using it with one hand.
