Samsung's 5.3-inch Galaxy Note pushed the boundaries of what we think is a phone, but if you think Samsung's innovations stop here, you're dead wrong…

"We just wanted to make a phone that is twice bigger than the iPhone"

Wait, you do realize this is an April Fools joke right?

Ah, this made my day. I'm stuck at work so I'll probably come back every once in a while just to read the "Tim" quote and perk my day up. Better than 5 Hour Energy.

In fact 6.7 inch is nearly 4 times bigger than iphone, not 2 times!

dafauq ??? the iphone is 3.5 ... 3.5 x 2 = 7 !!! HOW ITS NEARLY 4 TIMES ???

This really puts everything into perspective, my next calculator will be an iPhone.
60. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
if your measuring surface area, its more than 2x. might not be 4x, but its definitely more than 2x.
someone who is taking algebra/trig needs to come in with the equasion. its a lot more than 3.5x2 = 7 lol
62. biophone (Posts: 1893; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
Well you have to take the area so you have to find the length of each side. Assuming each phone is a square which its not but that makes the calculations easier. 2x^2=3.5^2 derived afrom a^2 +b^2=c^2 assuming a and b are a square which they aren't. So x = about 2.5 and that times 2.5 is 6.125 is the area of the iphone in cubic inches i guess. Times four would be 24.5 and the square root of that is 5. Usig a^2 +b^2 =c^2 assuming squared 5^2 +5^2=c^2 c = 7 so a 7 inch phone is four times more sa then the iphone. Since i assumed both phones are a square i don't thin it matters. Feel free to check but i am fairly good at math. Taken up to calc freshman in college. 770 on sat math 760 math 2 sat 2 4 ap calc so u can trust me.
64. biophone (Posts: 1893; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
I did some calks for fun...
A 4.3 inch phone has a screen that is 1.5 times bigger then the iPhone.
A 5.3 inch phone has a screen 2.3 times bigger then the iPhone
A 6.7 inch phone has a screen about 3.7 times bigger then the iPhone. All these numbers are rounded albeit it should be accurate assuming my square thing is valid. I will do the galaxy nexus for fun so
4.65 inch phone has a screen a 1.8 times bigger screen then the iPhone.
(if anyone is interested the iPad has a 7.7 times bigger screen then the iPhone.)

U need to go back to math class dude. 3.5x2=7... So 6.7 isn't even twice as big.
32. frommars (Posts: 11; Member since: 24 Oct 2011)
it's nearly 4 times bigger than iphone do the math again.
53. starandmountain (Posts: 50; Member since: 01 Apr 2012)
frommars is right,
if you've got a 7 inch screen you need four 3,5 inch screens to fill a 7 inch screen, it is diagonal. if you draw in on a paper. you'ill see frommars is right;)

victor got a chance to bash samsung in the name of April fool's day.
10. Walter.D.DROID (Posts: 25; Member since: 01 Apr 2012)
damn this day I guess :@ they could joke with something related with iPhone -.-
I have a Galaxy Note and expecting a sequel, but not 6.7inch, my guess is that, it will be between 5.5-6inch and all the way with quad :P
27. Gcombs (Posts: 133; Member since: 22 Aug 2011)
I'm guessing the same 5.3 but with the borderless design so it makes it smaller in design but with that nice screeen.
47. Walter.D.DROID (Posts: 25; Member since: 01 Apr 2012)
hmmm, i would like it that screen a little more bigger, 5.8inch maybe, but we will see about that, if it even will there be a sequel, Samsung Galaxy Note II? dreams for now, atleast we can imagine how it goes when the specs (and SGS3 itself) for SGS3 are finally unveiled -.-' quad core, ice cream sandwhich or jelly bean are a must, oh and a little bump on the screen resolutions! 1280x800 on the note 10.1 was a let down :@
12. apocalypsebc (Posts: 148; Member since: 07 Dec 2010)
They haven't made a 5.3" Windows Phone yet. lol

This is no more absurd than a 5.3 inch screen
18. biophone (Posts: 1893; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
Noooooooooooooooo. It was so peaceful...

35. bossmt_2 (Posts: 430; Member since: 13 Oct 2009)
Quad core? I'm more interested in the SGS IV with it's Octo-Core processor
38. som (Posts: 768; Member since: 10 Nov 2009)
Why Samsung wasted too much money on 6.7" instead of using existed 7" or 7.7" super AMOLED?
39. Jericho (Posts: 302; Member since: 12 Nov 2011)
phonearena got me there until i clicked on the source link......
But seriously i enjoyed tim cock's quote.

He's described as an epic hater in this article!
48. kastor (Posts: 43; Member since: 15 Jan 2012)
well if not a joke it will be perfect phone,just i need to know the price
50. PAPINYC (Posts: 2237; Member since: 30 Jul 2011)
This is definitely an April iFools joke. If you believe this then why not wait on the just announced iPhone 4SX with a 3.65" Super iRetina display and 513MB of RAM.
