I agree it'd be an unnecessary improvement, but I could see Apple doing it just to stay competitive in specs with flagship Android devices.

I doubt they'd do that. I imagine they'd rather implement the flexible screen technology that uses less power and is harder to break. All of course while upholding the great retina display.

Perhaps the rumoured res increase is a prelude to a screensize increase.
The two main sale-losers for Apple are screensize and non-Flash support.
If everybody who'd jumped the Apple ship because of screensize had had a larger-screen iPhone option, it would be Samsung and its Android-cohorts licking their wounds instead - but Jobs was always a slave to his non-commercial and misguided principles of design 'philosophy' .... which don't appear to have done Samsung sales a great deal of harm, with their 4.8", 5.0", 5.3" and now 5.8" screen options.

Apple will never divulge the fact, but poor battery-life is caused be restoring a new iPhone from a backup made on an old one (different model, say 4 to 4S).
I've tried this on several different iPhones and it's been the same story - 3 or 4 times the battery life from an iPhone set up as a new device.
Clearly, Apple regards divulging this as a sales-loser - but it's a fact of digital life common to all devices.
I used to moderate on a section of the biggest PC-overclocking forum back when it was amdmb.com - and the number one issue was OS problems that arose from restoring OS images after a BIOS update (effectively the same as a hardware update).
