Quite frankly, you’re no one in the world of smartphones these days if you don’t have a 5in 1080p device. Er, unless you’re Apple or Samsung. But you get what I mean, right?
Speaking of Samsung, its rumoured 5in (4.99in to be precise) 1080p Super AMOLED display appears to be a goer.
The display was in fact quietly confirmed by Samsung at CES last week, as observed by AnandTech.
A Samsung Super AMOLED roadmap shows the history of the tech, from 3.9-4.27in WVGA (230 PPI) launched in Q2 2010, to 4.99in FHD (440 PPI) launching in Q1 2013.
Nicely, Samsung boasts of a 25% power saving mode with the latest AMOLED developments, with a further low power mode offering 47% power savings.
The big question is: will this 4.99in 1080p Super AMOLED display feature in the Samsung Galaxy S IV? The answer is: probably.
The Samsung Galaxy S IV is tipped to launch around April/May, and it’d make sense to debut the spanking new 4.99in 1080p Super AMOLED display in a flagship.
Other rumoured Samsung Galaxy S IV specs include 2GB of RAM and a super-fast quad-core processor. Only… three or four months till it becomes a reality.
