Sizing up the iPhone 5: The screen

The back of the iPhone 5's new chassis that holds the taller screen, according to 9to5Mac.


All signs point to a taller screen for the iPhone 5. For many, that alone will redefine Apple ‘s iconic phone.

I think it’s safe to say that more than any other single hardware feature, Retina screens are what consumers of the iPhone and iPad are focusing on these days — not to mention Apple marketing folks.

And Apple won’t disappoint with the iPhone 5. 9to5Mac says the taller screen will boast a resolution of 640-by-1,136. (iPhone 4 and 4S are 640-by-960.)

Those tweaks will yield a resolution “very close to a 16:9 screen ratio, so this means 16:9 videos can play full screen at their native aspect ratio,” the Apple enthusiast site said.

A build of iOS 6 for the new iPhone ‘s display may have a home screen with a fifth row of icons and an interface that offers views of more content.
