iPhone 6, Apple, rumours, macworld australiaRussian iPhone modifier and reseller Feld & Volk has released more alleged photos of the iPhone 6, this time showing an outer shell and display glued together, forming a ‘complete’ iPhone 6 and a 4.7in display under a microscope, in an attempt to uncover the resolution of the new screen.

Feld & Volk informed MacRumors that, after the use of the microscope, they concluded that the 4.7in iPhone 6 has a resolution of 1704 x 960.

However, MacRumors‘ own analysis of the photos concludes that the resolution is actually 1472 x 828, matching a very recent finding by 9to5mac, and adding to the mounting speculation before the imminent official launch of the 4.7in and 5.5in iPhone 6 models, reported to be 9 September.

Multiple reports are speculating that both of the rumoured resolutions could in fact both be correct, with a separate one for both the 4.7in and 5.5in models, but still maintaining the same pixel density across both screen sizes.

By comparison, the current iPhone 5s has a display resolution of 1136 x 640.

Feld & Volk also released photos of a previously released 4.7in iPhone 6 outer shell and front display, now glued together to form what appears to be a complete iPhone 6. The photo can be viewed on the company’s Instagram page here.
