Apple is said to have yet another product in the pipeline with a Retina display, and this time it’s an iPhone with a really big screen, according to a report from Reuters.
Apple is purportedly already placing orders with suppliers for a 4.6-inch iPhone Retina display, Reuters said today, citing a report in South Korea’s Maeil Business Newspaper. The phone is due in the second quarter, according to the report.
If accurate, that would be Apple’s third device with a Retina display. The others include the just-released 9.7-inch iPad and the 3.5-inch iPhone 4S.
The 960-by-640-pixel Retina display on the iPhone packs in 326 pixels per inch while the new iPad’s 2,048-by-1,536-pixel screen squeezes in 264 pixels per inch.
A relatively massive–for a smartphone, that is–4.6-inch glass screen would be a big step for Apple from the 3.5-inch iPhone. A larger phone may also allow Apple to include updated chips such as the A5X. That chip’s marquee feature is quad-core graphics.
