Apple iPhone 5 high-res screen tests begin

Next-gen Apple blower to ditch impressive Retina display for a new HD offering

With a selection of handsets touting HD displays, Apple is rumoured to be testing similar screen offerings to replace the Retina model for the iPhone 5

Despite being hailed for its ultra crisp Retina display found rocking on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, Apple has begun testing high-res screens for its long mooted Apple iPhone 5 device, new reports have revealed.

Rumoured to be retaining its 3.5-inch form factor so as not to disturb the iOS platform's expansive and uniformed app offering Apple looks set to up its display credentials for the iPhone 5 with the current 960 x 640p Retina display resolution to be plumped to a HD 1280 x 720p or 1440 x 800p offering.

Apple iPhone 5 Rumours

The latest iPhone 5 rumours come courtesy of German website Macerkopf with the new screen testing reports landing alongside further speculation around the processor that will land within the next-gen pocket blower.

Previous rumours had suggested the iPhone 5 will host a supped-up dual-core CPU, however recent reports around the HTC inclusion of quad-core processors have sparked much speculation around a similar move from the Cupertino outfit.
