Samsung’s 4.99in 1080p Super AMOLED display confirmed

Samsung’s 4.99in 1080p Super AMOLED display confirmedQuite 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.

How come they can do that, but they can't make KIES do its job?

Not disputing that KIES is terrible, in fact it's never worked for us, not even for updates.

I just use Odin to update, and MyPhoneExplorer to backup.

Anyway the Q1 date for them suggests it's not going in the S4 or the S4 is being hurried which would be surprising..

We could see a MWC S4, it's possible...

Or an SGS3 Maxi Plus?

So that's a watered down S3, right?

Of course, that is the meaning of 'plus', isn't it?

Apparently it is in Korean, yes.

Well the S+ was a small upgrade on the S, so more they've forgotten what + means..

Seems like it could be a new device to me rather than s4, wonder if they can get the volumes they'd need for s4 screens.
Unless the screen production is starting in q1 and the phone released mid q2 as with the s3.
