The next generation Apple iPhones will incorporate a new touchscreen display that fits 326 pixels into each inch of its surface. That, CEO Steve Jobs told an audience at this morning’s Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco, is higher than the resolution of the retina inside a human eye.

In side-by-side blowups, Jobs showed how the Retina Display, as it’s called, removes the blurriness from images and text on the phone’s screen.

Other major additions to the fourth-generation iPhone are internal antennas for better wireless coverage, and a gyroscope for sensing hand motions.
