>… while the 6.1-inch model is estimated to have between 320 and 330 PPI.

So, 326 PPI, like they've been using since the iPhone 4.

makes sense if you consider the overriding Apple tendency to want to eliminate mechanical buttons.

Why does everyone say the X has an "edge to edge" display when it clearly has a decent sized bezel?

You want to see true edge to edge look at the Samsungs. That Note 8 is one beautiful phone.

As soon as I saw the "PPI" numbers in the original rumor I figured it was time to strap in for a 1,000+ word Gruber word salad.

The 6.1" is the missing iPhone 9.

Edge-to-edge displays are kind of pointless if you still need to put a case on it - you end up covering the edge.

It's a cheap version that will likely have no benefit over the other models other than being cheaper.

People that choose it will choose it because it's cheaper, not because they prefer the 6.1" size over 5.8" or 6.5".

Notice the size difference between the 9.7" iPad and 10.5" iPad Pro is minimal. One could have said it makes no sense and making a smaller iPad only makes sense if it's going to be significantly smaller like the 7.9" iPad mini.

That logic of wanting products with a significant size difference should only applies for products within the same range (e.g. two flagships).

In the Aussie vernacular of my people: Yeah, nah.
