The next iPhone will likely feature a 3.95-inch, 1136 x 640 display
Reports are coming in today that shed more light on what major changes we may be seeing when Apple introduces the new iPhone later this year. According to 9to5Mac, Apple is currently testing two specific iPhone devices that both feature a 3.95-inch display with a resolution of 1136 x 640. This would be the first time that the iPhone ventured away from the 3.5-inch display, as each model since the beginning has used the same screen size.
The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S both sport pixel-dense 960 x 640 Retina display technology. If you notice, the rumored resolution of the new iPhone maintains the 640 pixel width. What this means is that Apple is prepared to introduce a new form factor, keeping the width and lengthening the height of the iPhone display by 176 pixels. So the screen will stay 1.94 inches wide as it is now, but will grow to 3.45 inches tall, making it similar to 16:9 displays and allowing it to play high definition iTunes movies at full screen.
Internal builds of iOS 6 purportedly take advantage of the new larger display by adding an extra row of app icons on the home screen, and obviously with more screen space, you can see more app data.
