Can't Get Your Head Around The Resolution Of 4K Displays? This Comparison Could Help
Apple is rumored to be working on a 4K Display-equipped Apple HDTV product, but how will the ultra-high resolution display compare against the familiar displays of our iPhones, iPads, Macs, and HDTVs? Fortunately, one chart helps put the resolution of 4K Displays into perspective. Called "Relative Screen Resolutions" and published by DoghouseDiaries, the chart compares the resolution of a 4K Display to the displays of the iPhone 5s, iPad mini with Retina display, MacBook Pro with Retina display, and even less-equipped products such as the Pebble smart watch, the sixth-generation iPod nano, and the Nintendo 3DS. Here's the chart - we'd recommend that you click to enlarge, and view it in full size: [caption id="attachment_481256" align="aligncenter" width="800"] Source: DoghouseDiaries.[/caption] As a reminder, the latest rumors and analysis have indicated that Apple is working on 55- and 65-inch Apple HDTV models, both of which are expected to feature a 4K Display. Of course, an Apple HDTV has long been in the cards, but over the course of the last year or so attention as turned to the potential of ultra-high resolution displays being used in the product. In a move that may prove to be telling, Apple didn't refresh its Apple TV set-top box during its recent October event, despite reports claiming that a new product was in the pipeline. Could a dedicated television-based event be scheduled for some time in the first half of 2014? We'll keep you updated on this front.
