Apple iPhone 4G HD Display Put Under a Microscope

The new Apple iPhone 4G is said to have a very high resolution screen with reports indicating 960 x 640 pixels.

If those reports are true then the screen will use IPS technology that has been seen in the new Apple iPad along with FFS (fringe-field switching) to make even clearer images. With the 960 x 640 resolution and the 3.5 inch screen size, this indicates a 320ppi making it a lot finer than other screens on phones such as the Google Nexus One.

The screen somehow landed in the hands of a company in the Czech Republic although it seems like they just got a screen and not a phone. They were unable to power it on, so the images captured are not lit by the screen.

What’s interesting to note here is that the new iPhone has a close resolution match to the iPad. If apps are designed to work on the iPhone 4G then they should almost run on the iPad with no pixel doubling and hence, look way better then apps do now doubled up.

A lot of information is still missing about the iPhone 4G such as the official name of it (iPhone HD maybe?) and if apps developed for it will also function on older iPhone’s with lower resolutions.
