Today supposedly the iPhone 6 resolution was confirmed via a microscope test, Feld & Volk claims its microscope tests reveal a display resolution of 1704 x 960, which is much higher than the current 1136 x 640 that we find on the iPhone 5s. The display size isn’t yet confirmed on what this test was done on, I’m guessing the 5.5 inch, More on that in a second, but if we were talking about the 4.7-inch model, this would bump pixel density from the current 326PPI to 416PPI. (Which is why we feel this is the 5.5 Inch iPhone in this test.)
Sources to Macrumors claim that the screen resolution is actually 1472 x 828, which in pixel density would amount to 360PPI, that would still be within Apple’s Retina Display frame. This agrees with other Xcode sources found by 9to5Mac., As we stated earlier it could be that the higher screen resolution belongs to the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6. If that were the case, that would give us a pixel density of 355PPI, Thats very close to what the 4.7 Inch Model would have.
This is why I think both sources are correct and we are seeing tests coming from both devices. So sorry apple fans, You will still be FAR behind Android in the Pixel race, But atleast they have blown the screen up for you.
