Samsung having problems producing 441ppi displays, possibly for the Samsung Galaxy S IV
posted by Alan F. / Nov 20, 2012, 10:43 PM
According to a report out of Korea, Samsung has been struggling to mass produce these displays because of the evaporation process technology that it uses. Samsung Display is trying to obtain advanced LITI technology from 3M that allows OLED material to be more smoothly printed on glass. Those with knowledge of the situation say that Samsung is still having difficulties with the technology. Blue-colored materials are slowing down Samsung's mass production of the displays.
The source says that due to these problems, Samsung might not be able to release the device using the panel (purportedly the Samsung Galaxy S IV) on time. Speculation is that the next Galaxy S smartphone will be launched sometime in the second quarter of 2013.
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1900 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2600 mAh(17h 3G talk time)

Hey Samsung, take your time then! I'd die for a 1080p amoled screen and anything less would be disappointing.

No, not mad just sarcastic. :) I agree that not all people care about natural colours, clear and sharp images on their phones but it still doesn't change the fact that not natural colours and not sharp images are more disadvantage than advantage or I'm wrong? Also why would anyone should prefer display which has shorter life span and easily gets Burn-In effect? Should it be somehow useful for user? I don't think so! :)

Some people prefer lower power comsumption, higher contrast, higher refresh rate, more saturated and more vivid colours. Although I've never experienced burn-in effect since I'm using AMOLED screen(N8, GSII now the GNOTE II), it is not much of an issue since most of us don't keep a phone for more than 2years.

it would be better if you die for a 5 inch 1080p IPS screen with OptiContrast panel+PixelEyes+WhiteMagic+MobileBraviaEngine2+pure RGB matrix, which would feature in upcoming Sony ODIN/YUGA. i humbly request you not to die for a fake and oversaturated screen as it's not worth ur life...!!!

A possible 5 inch screen on the Galaxy S4? I wonder what the screen size for the Galaxy S5 will be & if Samsung will keep going bigger.

They are actually "training" us unconsciously with bigger screens. Have you ever tried using Galaxy S3 after using Galaxy Note? It feels small as hell! lol If they keep on increasing screen sizes in conjunction with narrower bezels, it's all good I reckon.
