    Homepod firmware spilling all the beans

    Digging further into the HomePod firmware code, Steven Troughton-Smith has seemingly confirmed that iPhone 8 will boast a three-times resolution screen at 2,436 by 1,125 pixels.

    “It has more screen in height, but it can’t fit the same kinds of data onscreen as iPhone 7 Plus can,” he wrote on Twitter. The numbers match up nicely with what KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo originally predicted.

    The numbers convert to about 521 pixels per inch, up from the iPhone 7 Plus’s 5.5-inch full HD display at 1,920 by 1,080 pixels at 400 pixels per inch. The 2,436 by 1,125 pixel resolution applies to the handset’s so-called active display are—that is, the canvas dedicated to apps.

    There should also be an additional Touch Bar-like area at the bottom of the display to host a virtual Home button along with persistent shortcuts to apps in the Dock. Taken together, the active display area and the bottom area for shortcuts should make for a total of 5.8 inches diagonally at 2,800 by 1,242 pixels.

    I already mentioned this on several threads. Some sites do rumor that the usable functioning screen size will be 5.15", with the total screen size at 5.8". Still just rumors though.

    Yes but with this being in the apple code, it's a little more than just some random person hinting at it. But yes still rumors.
