Samsung might be prepping a 5.8" ClorOLED display with 16 subpixels RGB matrix, can we say Note III?

Samsung might be prepping a 5.8
We've been sent some info claimed to be from meetings with Samsung on its AMOLED display developments. The source says they've been told that Samsung is working on a project for a so-called ClorOLED display to be ready for mass yields in June 2013.

The specs are nothing short of stunning, if this whole tip is true, since the pixel density has allegedly been disclosed by Samsung to be 358ppi in a 5.8" unit, made with an RGB matrix, instead of the PenTile arrangement Samsung's been using for its HD Super AMOLED screens until the Note II

The claimed resolution, however, doesn't really add up to that pixel density. The source says the display is to sport the rather unconventional 1024x980 pixels, which, coupled with the reported 5.8" size, adds up to 244ppi. Here comes the kicker, though - out tipster claims that the RGB matrix of this project, codenamed ClorOLED, will be done with no less than 16 subpixels, so make of it what you will. The Super AMOLED Plus in the Galaxy S II is listed by Samsung as having 12 subpixels in ads, so we'd have a third more here.

With the Note II and its unconventional matrix arrangement Samsung showed that it is not afraid to experiment with the subpixels count, shape and position of its AMOLED displays, and produced its brightest and most discernible HD AMOLED screen so far, so an alternative arrangement is at least plausible. 

Furthermore, we heard recently that Samsung has managed to achieve 350ppi+ pixel densities with its current conventional AMOLED production technology, called Fine Metal Mask (FMM), so that might be the production process for the ClorOLED brand in the end.

This crazy amount of subpixels would mean much greater image clarity and definition, so we are all for ClorOLED, as utopian as it may sound. Mass June 2013 production sounds just about right for a Galaxy Note III release, so we will keep an eye for any rumors on that front.

Thanks for the tip!

I don't know about that? The Qualcomm quad-core Krait S4 Pro with Adreno 320 clocked at 1.5 to 1.6GHz will eat the dual-core Exynos 5 is it ever decides come out that is.

lol. you want to bet on that? the Quad krait is nice, no doubt, but the krait is not as strong as the E5, and the Adreno 320 is not as strong as the Mali 6xx.

It might win on certain floating point muscle tests, but over all it will be at LEAST slightly weaker than the E5 if not noticeably weaker.

Yeah you are right but it will be this time next year before anything will have a quad-core E5. Also the dual-core E5 might be out some time in late Q1 or early Q2. So that is cool if you don't mind waiting.

I really would like to see Qualcomm's answer to the E5. You know since Qualcomm is already working on their next successor to the S4. lol

all companies work 2+ generations ahead. Thats not new. :)

The S4 pro/quad is their answer to the 4412. Their answer to the E5/E5 quad is a while away, just like the e5 quad.

I dont mind waiting. You know me, if its not exactly what I want, I'm not gonna buy it. Im a patient lil tech geek.

Actually, @ 5.8 1920x800 = 358.62ppi.
Aspect ratio of 2.40:1 which is common among movies.

57. denied911 (banned) (Posts: 361; Member since: 31 May 2012)


i don't think thay change aspect ratio
now 16:9 is perfect and 1680x945 is 16:9
besides samsung need something between 720p and 1080p because in 4.8-5" screens they can't make fullhd amoled yet, and lcd will be pretty soon

So what? Look at LG's results, they are losing cash. Who cares if they brought something to the market first, if it's not good people would rather buy a Samsung product over LG's, as shown in market results.

I did. She tried both and found the Galaxy Nexus easier to use, eg Bluetooth, wifi etc settings are all in one place on the Samsung, but Bluetooth is under general in IOS ..
Also specific settings for apps are in settings for IOS, but in their respective apps for Android.
Easier to use my ass

i think camera good camera is in Sony and Nokia (pure view version)
Display : i prefer htc. HTC sense is better GUI than touchwiz, although makes slower response about 0.xxxx second than touchwiz ( it's not important -.- )
Design : Sony is the best
Material : HTC is the best
Hardware specs : Samsung
OS : Android and windows phone looks even better and solid now, may be it will be hard competitor of android and iOS

Camera > Nokia my ass.

Sony makes the best cameras in a compact device. I would love to see how the Lumia 920 fairs against an Exmor RS 13 MP camera from Sony.

The Lumia 800's camera doesn't even come close to Sony's cameras in the Xperia Arc/iPhone4S/GalaxyS3

The Xperia S' camera is better than the N8:http://www.dialaphone.co.uk/blog/2012/02/13/12mp-camera-phone-comparison-sony-xperia-s-vs-nokia-n8/

Yes, Nokia does make very decent cameras. The best camera I've seen on a mobile phone was the 808 Pureview, but let's face it; it just ruins the design of the phone. If you want a camera that doesn't look hideous, Sony is the answer.

the lumia 800 is a mid/low end windows 7 device. Why dont you compare a yugo vs a mercedes and tell me who wins.

seriously, wtf.

nokia n8, good design and great camera and 2 years old. its taken other companys 2 years to play catch up and nokia already raised the bar again with the 808.

sony doesnt make the best camera's infact they dont come close . there right nokia is the camera king at the moment innovating with pureview and pureview phase 2.

and design comes down to personal preference. i like bigger phones that feel solid , others like thin phones.

Samsung spent about $10 billions a year in new R&D and innovations for most components for mobile devices. Apple innovations are court rooms and banned Samsung products.

I dont see how this lines up with the "note 3", considering its september and the Note2 isnt even out yet.

The Galaxy launches near june, the note launches in the fall. So this would line up with the SGS4 announcement. Just because they have it working up to 5.8 inches doesnt mean they will actually make it 5.8 inches.

My guess the SGS4 would be no bigger than the SGS3. I think the only way the screen will get any bigger is if the bezel shrinks even further (which is very likely). The size of the phone wont exceed what the SGS3 is though.
