The iPhone 5 has a 4-inch gorilla glass touchscreen with oleophobic coating. Gorilla glass is mostly used on smartphones to resist scratches, and the oleophobic coating is so the screen will resist the oils from your fingertips.
This is the first iPhone screen to have a retina display with integrated touch technology, pixels are now sensing touch and displaying the image at the same time. Thus having one less layer, you now experience more clarity than ever before.
The iPhone 5 has a IPS TFT capacitive touchscreen with 16 million colours and a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch (Retina Display). The screen shape is now a 16:9 = 1.78 aspect ratio, display resolution is 1136 x 640, with a screen area of 6.7 sq inches and the display is now 18% brighter than the iPhone 4S.
