The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may have been launched in Malaysia less than a month ago, but say hello to rumours about the next generation Galaxy Note series. According to PhoneArena, Samsung will start mass-producing 5.9” 4K UHD Super AMOLED displays for next August, just in time for the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
Sounds a bit too soon to have 4K mobile displays when 2K is only slowly picking up in pace? Not really, in fact, Samsung started talking about UHD 2160 x 3840 displays for mobile devices since last year – the Korean company told Analyst Days that the display is in the works for 2015. Samsung is not alone in this, back in May, the head of LG Display also mentioned that 600ppi and even 700ppi smartphone panels are in the works. Sharp has also been rumoured to be working on a 4K mobile display that measures from 5.5” to 6”.
4K display on a 5.9” panel would return a pixel density of a whopping 746ppi. In comparison, the 5.7” QHD display on the Galaxy Note 4 has 515ppi and the 5.5” QHD display on the Oppo Find 7 has 538ppi. The Galaxy Note 5 featuring a 5.9″ UHD Super AMOLED display is expected to be announced next year in the next Samsung Unpacked event at IFA.
Anyone excited to see how 4K would look like on a mobile display?
