At 320 ppi, you won't notice that it's Pentile. For reference, the Galaxy S Pentile screens are 230 ppi.

Lets' do some math shall we?


XPixels = 720
YPixels = 1280
DPI = 320

XInches = 720 / 320 = 2.25
YInches = 1280 / 320 = 4

Diagonal size = Sqrt(XInches2 + YInches2) = Sqrt(2.25*2.25 + 4*4) = 4.589
(originally from wetninja)

So if his numbers are correct, then the screen should be ~4.6...

your math is correct but the Yinches is wrong. its 1180 not 1280. from the picture it shows 1180x720. so the screen will be 4.33inches diagonal.

That's kind of what we're arguing... the screen may be 4.59" including the active buttons (1280x720) but only 4.33" useable area (1184x720).

this is the difference between android fans and apple fans. on an apple article, apple fans spout obsurdities like "iphone5 will destroy teh google wif iz awezumness" and crap like that. On an android thread, android guys are doing math on screen sizes. Lol, and they wonder why they think android guys are smarter.. lolol

Ask me about my screen size and resolution spreadsheet.

Well seeing how the Galaxy S II is there flagship device I would think it would be getting the update for sure, but in the end who really knows.

Maybe Galaxy S III... isn't an ICS display dependent on hardware, not software or firmware?

Lol as I said to a friend the other day Google will show and ruin some of Apple's day.

Now the Google Flagship has arrived on the scene.

The pirate ships are all at war.

I am sorry but after seeing the Galaxy Note with a 5.3" screen, a 1280x720 SuperAmoled HD screen, a 1.4Ghz dual core processor and unique capacitive stylus-based apps and features, few things can impress me here. Especially If people get to OC the Note to 1.8+Ghz

Well, at least until the quad-core GS3, that is. :)

This phone is going to kill the iPhone 5 and leave it in the dust.

The new unannounced iPhone is already obsolete.

Jobs if he shows will be an emotional thing for the Apple fans. Because I predict he will not look very good at all. Sad but true.

It depends a lot how iOS 5 and ice cream sandwich compare also not just the phones hardware. I think atliest 50% importance either way

The original article linked says 4.6'' screen so I don't know why Phone Arena's article says 4.3''.
