Some markets might see the Galaxy Note 3 with an LCD instead of Super AMOLED display

An IGZO LCD or AMOLED display (with brightness and power efficiency improvements with a RBG strip) would be just fine. The Full HD Super AMOLED display in the S4 reproduces some of the most accurate colors on the market today. As well as giving you the option to see in vivid saturated colors. Either way, it's a win if it's one of the two aforementioned.

is burn in still a problem for this tipe of amoled ? or the fading colours?

I have used AMOLED over two years on my phone and it is still perfect. Fading colours, I don´t think that it will be a problem, maybe if you use it more than two years, but I have yet to encounter any problems.

I'm a great fan of super amoled HD just like the one on s4 . personal preference will make me very much bored with the other option.

Note3 without Amoled! Impossible! We hear this same about S4.

Exactly, the same rumor appeared for the S4, and it didn't happen. (Only if you include the S4 Active which has an LCD screen)
Either way Samsung should stick to AMOLED because consumers like it and many people buy Galaxys just for the AMOLED screen.

The S4 active has LCD because the active is supposed to be waterproof, and well... OLED screens quickly degrade by moisture. And I mean quick!
I think some tests showed with full exposure to high humidity rendered the screen useless within seconds -- just humidity, not being dunked in. I think they're just being careful.

Sammy if u release LCD ones in 3rd world esp India................grrrrrrrr ur racist

They released their premium Exynos Versions in India , so m sure they are not concerned about race, more about productivity and profitability

And India will get one with a suckyy display!

This new Phone Arena UI sucks! Was perfect the way it was.

Triluminos Display is already a phenomenal, so why AMoLED

note 3 without amoled? no thanks! i like colours that pops and stands out from the rest. After using my S4 for 2 months now, LCD screens looks kinda washed out to me.

Amoled has its drawback..first we have the ''off-white'' rendering , then it tends to exaggerate Grays, resulting in a stark rendering when watching an HD movie with a predominantly dark / night scenes.
Deep blacks arent always good
I believe iPS is still the most well-balanced screen technology out there...

I think Samsung should give us the choice between pls, igzo, or ambled. I choose which ever one uses less power consumption

According to some in depth reviews I've read, these problems don't concern the AMOLED panel of the GSIV.
I don't know about burn-in issue though.

Amoled screens are good but not awesome. I hate it when watching dark scenes: less detail so I think IGZO will do.
25. icyrock1 (Posts: 307; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)
Hoping that one of the markets is the USA. I prefer LCD displays over Amoled (do to LCD having a far longer life expectancy and I prefer the colors it produces).

If AMOLED is of pentile (I love my Note2's non-pentile AMOLED very much than my RazrMAXX HD's Pentile AMOLED screen) then its better to get IGZO LCD FHD screen, imho..
If LCD Note3 pixel density is 360ppi, then Pentile screens's pixel density will be 240ppi only...

With out super amoled , note 3 is not a complete package.

Xperia Z Ultra Trilunimos X-Reality Engine Display > Note 3 LCD panel XD

I think the fact that Samsung is trying to mishmash together flagship units with vastly different specs is an indication that Samsung is doing something wrong.
31. torr310 (Posts: 532; Member since: 27 Oct 2011)
Aww... As I use my phone to browse internet the most, I wish my Note 2 has LCD!
32. cR203 (Posts: 190; Member since: 27 Jan 2013)
I hope the note 3 uses a super amoled hd display. The new super amoled hd displays are even better than whats on my note 2. Samsung is doing a great job developing and making amoled displays better.
