The iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus are highly expected to be launched on Sept. 9 as the successor models of last year’s iPhone 6 models. The upcoming iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S will likely arrive with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays, respectively. However, fresh reports suggest that both the handsets will support higher resolutions and pixel densities.

According to Phone Arena, a tipster with Weibo account @KJuma has revealed that the Apple iPhone 6S will be coming with a display of 4.7 inches that supports 1125 x 2000 pixels resolution. It is rumored to support a pixel density of 488 ppi. The iPhone 6 from 2014 featured the same display size, but supported 750 x 1134 pixels resolution and 326 ppi.

The Apple iPhone 6S Plus is also going to feature an upgraded display. Its 5.5-inch screen is expected to support 1242 x 2208 pixels resolution, and a pixel density of 460 ppi. The iPhone 6S Plus is likely to be enabled with a full HD resolution along with 401 ppi.

Previous rumors suggested that the Cupertino tech giant would be launching the newer iPhones with the same screen resolution as iPhone 6S models from 2014. According to Phone Arena, the Weibo website has revealed some specs of the iPhone 6S through its Geekbench benchmark scores. The single-core and multi-core scores of the iPhone 6S on Geekbench are 2,248 and 4,036.

The iPhone 6S is expected to feature the Apple A9 chipset that clocks at 1.8 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. The older iPhone 6 comes with the Apple A8 SoC and 1 GB of RAM.

Apple is pegged to unveil the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus on Sept. 9 through a launch event at Bill Graham auditorium in San Francisco. It is also rumored to unveil the large-sized Apple iPad Pro and the iPad Mini 4 at the event.
