Sounds to good to be true, right? Indeed, it does, but there are certain things indicating that this might actually come to be in the fall of 2015.
According to an anonymous tip received by the guys at Phonearena, there are chances that the new iteration in Samsung’s Galaxy Note series might boast an impressive 4K display. If this is true, it will probably be the first smartphone ever to have a 4K display. We’re talking here about a 5.9 inch Ultra HD AMOLED display with a pixel density of more than 700 pixels per inch, far more than any smartphone display has to offer at the moment. Even more, the size of the display will finally be increased once more. As you might know already, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has the same 5.7 inch screen as its predecessor, an interesting move from Samsung having in mind that every Galaxy Note brought another 0.2 inches to the screen size.
The whole thing might have gone unnoticed if Samsung had not pointed out earlier this year that they are working on ways to mount a 4K display on a phone. The resolution of such a display would be 3840 x 2160 pixels. But Samsung is not the only big company that has such plans. Some of their rivals have already expressed similar intentions. While they guys at LG have stated that smartphones with screens of 600 or 700 pixels per inch might become reality, Sharp is already rumored to be working on mounting such a display on a phone. Unfortunately, there are is no information as to how much they have progressed or if they have progressed at all.
If the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is to have a 4K display, then, considering its 5,9 inch display, that would mean a pixel density of about 746 pixels per inch. The phone will likely be announced at the 2015 edition of IFA in Berlin and we’re hoping Samsung has some nice things in store for us.
