The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus aren’t expected to get much of an upgrade when it comes to design, but the new smartphones may still pack plenty of new hardware. A fresh report from Chinese site Feng claims Apple will include the latest flagship level displays in its upcoming iPhone lineup.
According to anonymous supply chain sources, Apple plans to upgrade the iPhone 6s to a 1080p panel, while the larger iPhone 6s Plus could boast a 2K pixel resolution. That’s a pretty big improvement considering the current iPhone 6 offers a resolution of just 750 x 1334 pixels, while the iPhone 6 Plus comes in at 1080p. The report also claims to confirm previous reports that Apple will upgrade both handsets to a 12-megapixel camera sourced from Sony.
It’s certainly possible Apple is considering these high-end displays, but we’re not so sure the company will actually make the switch. Cupertino has never seemed to care about keeping up with the spec wars that often drive Android phone development. The current iPhone resolution looks pretty good as is, so we don’t think Apple will pack more pixels into the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus unless it has a very good reason.
We’re not expecting an official announcement for the new iPhones until later this year, likely in September when the news typically comes. For now, check out some of the more far out concept design we’ve seen for Apple’s upcoming smartphone.
