Samsung having problems producing 441ppi displays, possibly for the Samsung Galaxy S IV

Speculation that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will have a 5 inch screen with a 1080p resolution and 441ppi pixel density is tempered by the rumor that the Korean manufacturer is having difficulties producing the display...

That is absolutely asinine how you come to that. So by your logic if the 100m sprint world record gets reduced by 0.01 second every year, in about 1000 years the 100m sprint record is 0 second. LOL You are totally ridiculous buddy, how you linear interpolate the figures and come up with 15" phones by 2020. More than anything there's a threshold and the size of phone will stagger off to say about 5 or 6 inches. Anything above that will be classified as "phablets" and tablets. 15" phones? LOL that's just total idiocy. Don't even reply buddy, I don't have time to converse with children.

Yeah, Samsung surely likes to test the waters.

Samsung isn't trying to make a phone that is the perfect size for a human hand because for one, everyone's hands are different sizes no matter how much apple wants you to believe otherwise. And two, they are providing what the market demands, we aren't just using our phones for talk and text anymore. These things are mini supercomputers that require larger displays to enhance usability.

Do smaller AMOLED pixles die easier if they are smaller? If so they should stick with 720p!! 300+ is allgood

i couldn't agree with you more. the super lcd 3 display is fantastic. Also I think it would be dumb to have the galaxy s4 with a 5in. screen.. you might as well buy a damn note

I used to be a big fan of HTC. Now they're being pimped by Apple, which means what whatever HTC phone I purchase, Apple gets a cut. In this case, I'd side with Samsung, just to cut Apple loose.

So what you're saying is that premium smartphones with small, unremovable batteries, as well as lack of sd card slots is better than having the option for removable batteries & micro sd card slots?

is that a serious question? not everybody needs or wants all that memory. I mean if you like having tons of HD porn videos then that's your provocative ..

Provocative? You meant Prerogative right? Saying HTC is better than Samsung is just as broad of a statement as the one that I responded with. I'll agree that the build quality of HTC's phones are a step above Samsung's, and I even like HTC's screens better. I'll even go as far as to say I prefer HTC Sense over TouchWiz. Other than that, maybe I read that statement out of context, but both companies have their strengths & their weaknesses. To be overly broad, I can't agree with statement 18 as a whole; especially when HTC is being pimped Apple.

ha so you agree that HTC is better than samsung in a lot of things lets talk about your first comment ,, removable battery ???? are you serious ???? they all said it just a weakness in HTC's flagship but no one said its weakness in the iphone second comment lack of sd card who wants more than 32 GB in the One X and 64 GB in the One X+ its not a weakness man they are just biased to samsung and apple

I think 5.0 inches are big enough for screens, maybe the next step will be flexible phones. Samsung's logic is to innovate, not accumulate.

I doubt they would do away with a different design. it's still the galaxy series after all. some metal would be welcomed.

Samsung always make rumor pre-launch product to humor at the launching event

they have to rush as Samsung knows is the perfect time as no big competitor will release a flagship so they have to release if they want to brag about millions of sales

57. SleepingOz unregistered

So you mean that the iphone is no big competitor to Samsung's flagships, since the best selling weeks of the GSIII were after the ip5 release. It's really funny coming from an apple fanboy.

thats not what I said... Samsung drop the SGSII in the states weeks apart form the 4S and got beaten by Apple in sales... thats why the they went back to their normal released date.. no enemy in sight

This is ridiculous. Screw that, Samsung.. just put a 720p screen with a Note 2-like pixel matrix.
