According to industry sources, iPhone next generation will have a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels, which is in hard sense of the term corresponds to 326 dpi. It is known that in mobile devices, LCD panel – one of the most active users of energy, along with the processor and other chips. As in Cupertino will solve this problem, given the current tendency to reduce the thickness of the body at the exit of the new iPhone 5?
Experts of the largest analytical agency NPD DisplaySearch said that even an increase of up to 4-inch screen and the appearance of a 4-core processor in the new Apple smartphone will be able to balance by saving on the thickness of the display itself. As you know, it will be based on technology «in-cell», which implies that the sensors are built directly into touch color filter matrix, and are not located in a separate substrate from above. This will reduce its thickness to 0.5 mm.
Such a screen will consume less power, in addition, the gain in weight of Apple will be able to use to increase the capacity of the battery. In NPD DisplaySearch said that the latest figure will rise to 40% compared to the current flagship of the iPhone 4S.
In other words, the sacrifice of “autonomous” iPhone 5 users will not, even with the increased consumption of some components.
