Samsung Galaxy S 2 specs leak again - Sammy's been pondering between 4.3" and 4.5" displays

0. phoneArena posted on 07 Feb 2011, 02:59

It looks like a dual-core Orion chipset is all but confirmed, and Samsung has developed both 1GHz and 1.2GHz versions for two types of screens - one 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus display, and a smaller 4.3-incher for the Samsung Galaxy S 2...

One would think that this phone wont be available for a while, if they havn't even decided on the screen size?

It seems to be a good deal feature-wised, however, I will not even consider buying a phone with 4.5" display.
We know how creative one can be if limitations are set. I would just give 4" for the team and ask them to be creative without having any chance to increase the size of the phone. Galaxy S is a relatively good sized unit, but I think it doesn't make sense - at least for me - to have a "mobile" phone which doesn't fit in my pocket. :)

So if Infuse 4G has 4.5” Super AMOLED Plus display with a resolution of 450 x 800 pixels, then I don't want it in next Galaxy S. Why? Because Samsung put lower resolution on bigger screen, which means - bigger pixels! Standard resolution was 480x800, now we have new qHD 540x960 and Sammy is going down with resolution? WTF?!?!?!

I hear you, but don't forget that Super AMOLED Plus has 50% more subpixels per pixel in its matrix, so resolution will look much sharper than what we have on the Galaxy S...

I know, but still it's the lowest resolution from all top smartphones.

I was worried about that too, as I think of getting the Infuse when it is available, but looking at the hands-ons it looks pretty bright and with none of the jaggedness typical for the SGS. Also none of that blueish hue the SGS has before you apply the fix... I'll wait for a full review, though. Thin phones with 4-4.5" screens are the way to go imho... it probably is not possible to do Super AMOLEDs in resolutions that LVD offers...

@PhoneArena why does Samsung do displays at 480x800 instead of 480x854?

a 4.5 inch screen doesnt mean the phone has to be that much bigger.. if at all. if you look at your galaxyS, you could easy add a quarter inch to the top and bottom of the current screen (make it a hair wider though) without making any serious adjustments to the phone length.

With all this, it better have a 2200mhz battery though!!!
