It is rumored that the phone shall feature a 5.0 inch IPS LCD capacitive display that would provide a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Right now there is no indication that a Corning Gorilla Glass shall protect the display provided in the phone. The HD display may provide a pixel density of 294ppi that would provide a decent display to the phone. The HD display should make sure that the screen gets lively enough for its users. We hope that the phone would be able to provide fantastic sunlight legibility and amazing viewing angles too.
