That's never gonna happen.
If you look at Apple's history of screen resolutions (in phones, tablets, laptops), they always multiply the previous resolution by two. That's one of the reasons for the "overkill" in the iPhone's retina display. Anything above 250dpi (non pentile of course) is perfect to the eyes. The reason they got to 960*640 is that it was exactly twice the 480*320 of the previous gen iPhone. As for the iPad (2048*1536 instead of 1024*768). It's an easy way to keep compatibility with older programs, and avoid layout problems. The same happens when you run an iPhone app on an iPad (you can zoom x2 the application, and it doesn't even fill your iPad's screen).
So, I'm afraid that a new aspect ration for the screen would be a bit too revolutionary.

[citation][nom]wethrowpie[/nom]Why are there even stories like this? Every stupid little thing is picked apart months ahead of time. "The sky might be blue" , "55 different sources reveal the sky is blue in pictures", "We'll have to wait till september to see if the sky is indeed blue".SHUT UP ALREADY. YOUR MUNDANE EXISTENCE DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND YOUR FUCKING IPHONE. AND EVEN IF YOURS DOES, MINE DOES NOT.[/citation]

You could always choose not to read it you drama queen.

The largest company by stock evaluation in the world's flagship moneymaker... When GM or Microsoft or Samsung release new flagship products, do we not get butt loads of rumors for months??

Grow up.

Wow, who clicked the story button? Did it magically open on it's own?

How did the caps button get pressed?

Were you flailing your arms between typing? Please post a video, we would love to see it...

Draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaama :)

That is the plan. Samsung releases about 4~6 phones a year that LOOK nothing like the iPhone. The iPhone 1~3 look almost identical, the iPhone 4~5 look almost alike... so count on 6 being a really different looking design.
