Apple iPhone 5 has 4in, 326ppi Retina Display
Apple has unveiled its latest wonder phone, the iPhone 5, at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts – and it comes packing a larger 4in Retina Display.
Despite its larger screen size, it packs in 326ppi – the same as the iPhone 4S – with a resolution of 1136x640. Apple promises that the iPhone 5's Retina Display will serve up 44% more colour saturation – and claims that it's the most accurate display in the industry.
Although it's bigger, the iPhone 5's Retina Display is 30% slimmer – a saving Apple's achieved by integrating the touch sensors right into the display. That's helped Apple deliver its thinnest phone yet, at a slimline 7.6mm.
That extra space means that the iPhone 5's Home screen can pack in a fifth row of icons – iOS apps that haven't been optimised for the larger display will appear with letterboxed black bars, shrinking them back down to the 3.5in display size found on the iPhone 4S.
