Next Samsung Galaxy Note to feature an even bigger, 5.9-inch screen?
posted by Victor H. / Mar 06, 2013, 8:42 AM
''Samsung is working on introducing a new phablet using a 5.9-inch organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen,’’ the official said.
Interestingly, we’ve earlier heard suggestions that Samsung might make an even bolder jump to a 6.3-inch next Galaxy Note, but this new whisper writes that possibility off. The phablet will come with an octa-core processor, but is not very likely to feature Samsung's bendable displays we've been hearing so much about as Samsung is struggling with manufacturing.
The original Galaxy Note launched with what seemed a truly humongous 5.3-inch display late in 2011, and last year the Note II arrived with a 5.5-inch screen.
This however is really pushing the limits of pocketability. We have seen that there is big interest in phones like these that allow you to read easier, watch photos and movies in bigger sizes and enjoy an overall better media experience, so this seems like a logical move. Yes, and one more reason for most of us to feel like we have such small hands...

Sorry! Knowing i have options, i won't get a phone that's above 4.8 inches. 5.9 inch is just too much. Manufacturers just dream about bigger screens and make them...compromising on user-friendliness and comfortability. I don't want a phone that will cover half of my face.

I don't think the Note 3 will be much bigger than the 2. The Xperia Z has shown that larger screens can fit on phones roughly the same size as competitors because of a smaller bezel size. I think we'll see bezels get smaller and smaller this year resulting in larger screens but no noticeable change in handset size.

Another good example is the DNA... 5.5" tall with a 5” display...2 3/4" wide with an 1/8" bezel on the sides, very tight package.

I've had used a galaxy note for a while and found I got used to the size quite comfortably, I wouldn't want a larger phone than that though. With a bit of modern bezel less design it could be quite possible to get maybe up to a 5.9 inch screen into the galaxy note footprint,and that I certainly would buy

calling a two quadcore processors that doesn't work simultaneously an "octa-core" is a great marketing strategy. But also, a misleading move.

Phones are get to it pleatue, i dont think there is much room to improve.... dual core, quad core, octo core...... 16th core etc but even today not many apps suppose quad cores, all that cores is wase. To me what selling is in the software and battery life. Why can all core effort go into battery like use the screen itself to charge the phone?

no. In my opinion the best screen size is about 4.7 ~ 5.0 inch

You know... Just a while ago people used to say that 4.3 - 4.5 was best... than came 4.5 - 4.7 as perfect and now you have 4.7 - 5.0 as enough! Do you see where its going? :)

That is true. What you found on a phone a couple of years earlier is now definitely smaller as technology has improved. The large phones that you see now are what teh phones from couple of years before could not do. If i were making a phone with all the features of a phone from couple of years ago then i could fit all of them into a mobile that is just larger than a matchbox.

I love the 5.5 nature of my device. If they go larger than 6, it might be a little big even for more. Granted I think it does depend on how it feels in hand and how certain tasks feel or not feel natural while using it. If it passes all of these then i'd grab it.
