Will the Apple iPhone 8 offer a 521 ppi display?

KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has offered a new report on the upcoming  iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, expected later this year.

Kuo claims that iPhone 8 will offer a 521ppi pixel density, which is almost twice the 321ppi offering of the iPhone 7.  The display is also likely to feature a brilliant resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels, compared to 1334 x 750 pixels in iPhone 7′s IPS HD display screen.

The report suggests that the iPhone 8 device will also adopt a new function area at the bottom the display, which is possible due to the near bezel-less design and increase in screen size to 5.8-inch.

This new function area is likely to replace the current Home button and Touch ID, meaning  Apple is likely to replace the Touch ID functionality with new biometric technologies to ensure specs don’t suffer.

Along side the new function area, there may also be a ratio change along with the iPhone update. Kuo reports a predicted long display screen with a ratio close to 21:9 compared to the 16:9 aspect ratio of the current handsets.
