Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (N910) to have a 5.7-inch Quad HD display

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (N910) to have a 5.7-inch Quad HD display
It looks like Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 4 (expected to be introduced in the second half of the year) will have the same display size as least year’s Galaxy Note 3 (pictured on the left) - which is widely regarded as one of the best extra-large handsets in recent history.

According to GSM Arena, the new Galaxy Note 4 will sport a 5.7-inch display. However, unlike the older Note 3, which features a 5.7-inch screen with 1,080 x 1,920 pixels, the next-generation Note will offer a Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) pixel resolution. Of course, it’s not the first time we hear about this.

Reportedly, GSM Arena’s sources confirmed that the Galaxy Note 4 has the model number SM-N910, and is codenamed Muscat. We’re assuming that the codename was chosen from the Muscat variety of grapes (and sweet wines), not from Muscat, the capital of Oman.

Anyway, before announcing the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung will likely introduce the Galaxy S5 Prime (SM-G906). As mentioned many times before, the S5 Prime, allegedly codenamed Lentis, should have a 5.2-inch Quad HD screen.

A Galaxy S5 Mini (SM-G800) is also expected to come soon, sporting a 4.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels.

Back to the Note 4, let us know if you're happy seeing that its screen size will (probably) not be increased.

Right on the heels of a 4.7 inch iToy release, Sammy goes and releases a QHD Note 4. Apple has been playing catch-up on screen size and resolution since what - the iToy 4? And they thought they were going to get to parity with a 4.7 inch screen?

Time to settle the patent litigation and start competing. Otherwise, Sammy is going to bury Apple.

As long as the general public thinks the iPhone is the only smartphone in the world, iPhone will always have great sale number... How sad... There are just so many option out there right now that most people are not considering.

I went from..
Blackberry Storm 2
Motorola Atrix 4G
HTC One X
LG Nexus 4
Sony Xperia Z2
Next might be the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 :D

Apple hasn't been playing catch up until 5. I phone had higher ppi than android prior to samsung s3 and HTC one x.

If you ask me, Apple or any other phone company has never been playing catch up with regards to screen size and resolution. As a matter of fact, apple can decide to make a phone today with 7 inches, an ultra QHD if they wanted to just by the click of their fingers but they chose not to. They tend to manufacture something more practical(maintaining the line between tablets and phones). Furthermore, any screen display over 300 ppi is sufficient for anybody. Screen size is not innovation, infact bigger size makes manufacturing easier. Apple should be commended for being able to fit all the iphone's hardware into a smaller chassis. FYI i am not an apple fan, I am just a fan of real innovation and creativity.

You should go to the green robot as you already behave like one by dumping the cellphone to the trash when you are done with it, Here in Appleland an iphone doesn't go to the trash.. It goes to Craiglist as they do hold good resell value... Good luck with over there.. just sayin.

I love to have a new phone every year. My next phone will be the VERY best water proof 5.5"+ size phablet available.

The HTC One M8 Prime is looking insane as per the rumors. Also the Galaxy Note 4 is looking great.

The only problem with this phone is waiting.
I tend to be impatient, so I may jump on S5 prime/m8 prime/LG g3.

I think it is smart keeping the device from growing.

It would be nice if they trim down the bezels all around to make it a bit smaller then the Note 3. It will be a big plus if they put front facing speakers on it as well. I currently have the Note 3 and I'm quite happy with it. For some reason I like better before I got the vzw KitKat upate.

You want them to trim down the already very slim bezels on the Note 3 & add front facing speakers? That's just so damned unrealistic. Get a clue, man.

Why are they making these monsterous size screen's, 5.1 is big enough, where are you going to put these things? Look like a fool in a jean/short/pant pocket.. i really dont get it the screen size on the 3 is big enough, just make it quad hd no need to up the size i dont need a tablet in my pocket it's so silly..

26. ojdidit84 (Posts: 457; Member since: 16 Jul 2011)


What are you on about? The screen on the Note 3 is ALSO 5.7". They DID just make it QHD and not up the screen size. Well, speculated anyway. As far as it fitting in your pockets, it fits in mine just fine, jeans or shorts. I guess it depends on what you wear. But hell, I even see guys that wear slim fitted jeans where the Note 3 fits the pockets just fine. It's all personal preference.

This is not Apple, it's called "options". If you don't want it, don't buy it. Obviously, there's a market for these phones.

Pretty sure that QHD won't make a huge difference for me because 1080p is working just fine on my Note 3. I just want the screen to be brighter for better sunlight readability.

So the caps seem to be 5.7 for the Note series and 5.1 or 5.2 for the S series. That is why they are number 1 and not LG and Sony and HTC. They know that their phones can't be ridiculously large.

36. jaytai0106 (Posts: 1888; Member since: 30 Mar 2011)


Samsung is number 1 because they have the balls to try out new form factors. Samsung Mega has 6.3" screen and that's not ridiculous? It is, but someone out there thinks it's just perfect for them.

55. Taters (banned) (Posts: 6474; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)


They reserve the ridiculous for mid range projects lime the mega and beam. Yes testing on throwaway projects is part of their success too. Apple can test internally all they like but you still get fiascos like apple maps and iOS 7.

External testing is a lot more bulletproof.

They don't actually need to increase the screen size (5.7" is enough). What they actually had to do is to reduce the phone size (reduce the bezel size) in order to increase the screen size to phone size ratio.
