iPhone 6S Plus rumoured to have 2K display

The next generation of iPhones will receive a resolution bump, according to a fresh rumour from China.

With the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last year, Apple gave its smartphone range larger screens with more pixels. The iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch 1334 x 750 display, while the iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display.

Is Apple really ready to introduce another new resolution just a year later?

We have our doubts, but that’s precisely what Chinese website Feng (via BGR) is claiming.

Citing the kind of ‘sources familiar with Apple’s supply chain’ that are frequently used to justify such tittle tattle, the website claims that the iPhone 6S will come with a 1080p display, like the current iPhone 6 Plus.

Meanwhile the iPhone 6S Plus will feature a 2K display – think the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy S6, and Google Nexus 6.

Apple has finally made the switch to a bigger form factor for its phones – is it now ready to go chasing pixels along with its Android rivals? It’s possible, we suppose.

The report also claims that the iPhone 6S models will come with Apple Watch-like Force Touch capabilities, and that Apple will bring back the 32GB model at the expense of the puny 16GB model (please let that be true).

You know the drill with reports of this nature. Salt. Pinch of.
