Taiwan’s Commercial Times made a report with an interesting information for many iPhone users around the world. The most important part of this report, according to the translated from Chinese version, is that Apple is going to adopt the Japan Display’s “Full Active” LCD technology. You can notice some differences in comparison to traditional LCDs, used on iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. This “Full Active” technology requires only ultra-slim 0.5mm bezels on all four sides, which is smaller than on the latest iPhone X.
What is so special about these displays? They are 6-inch displays with a modern resolution of 2,160×1,080 pixels, including an 18:9 aspect ratio on the panels, which doubles its length.
Many experts suggested that the 6.1-inch iPhone would be presented with a taller display and a cutout for the TrueDepth camera system. However, an iPhone X is still taller, since it has a unique 19.5:9 aspect ratio. At some point it makes sense meaning that this device can resemble the iPhone X’s full-screen design.
What can this high resolution give you? For instance, the number of pixels increases to 395 per inch. The 2,160×1,080 resolution will have 320-330 PPI, but this part of information can differ from the original Apple’s statement.
The usage of this “Full Active” technology was also supported by a report from The Wall Street Journal. The main idea of Apple was to consider this technology on the future iPhone models with New iOS 11. Moreover, it sounds real, knowing the fact that famous Chinese smartphones have Full Active LCDs (Xiaomi Mi Mix 2) and this technology helps phones to work better.
Apple may use this smart move as a good compromise. Full Active LCD technology can allow Apple to sell the 6.1-inch iPhones even cheaper. This also includes the difference in terms of materials: stainless steel and single-lens rear camera are more preferable.
According to MacRumors, experts also predicted the future price of such 6.1-inch model. The 6.1-inch iPhone will cost between $700 and $800 in the United States.
