Samsung might go with LCD screen on the Note III, for better S Pen experience
posted by Daniel P. / Mar 13, 2013, 4:14 AM
For its 2013 giant-screen flagship, however, the discussions are still very much in the project mapping stage, since Samsung is trying to determine whether to stick with an OLED display, like it did so far, or go LCD, like on the Note 8.0, which would allegedly provide a better S Pen stylus experience.
Samsung's $130 million investment in Sharp, whose IGZO LCD screen tech everyone is trying to get a hold of, as it offers superior power-saving, brightness and pixel density options in a very slim packaging. Sharp's stake was said to be because of the Japanese TV panels, but we'd imagine Samsung wouldn't mind to get some scoop on the mobile screens potential there either.The source for such musings is purportedly
- Display 5.7" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, Quad-core, 2300 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 3200 mAh(21h 3G talk time)

So samsung has now finally given up on amoled displays? I think they should just continue developing it, instead of switching to lcd. I still miss the deep blacks and eye popping colors on my omnia 2 before until I switched to a gtab and htc one x

Amoleds have short(er) lifespan compared to LCDs....anyways, skipping the S4 while patiently waiting for the Note 3. It will all be worth it in the end because it WILL be THE BEST smartphone of 2013 bar none. The S pen somehow changed my perspective and I will not settle for anything less

If you're not an artist (ie musician, architect, painter,hobbyist) I see no important use of the S-pen other than the painfully glitchy handwriting recognition thingy..... If I wasn't doing occasional drawing and songwriting, I could care less about the S pen too

I'm a musician and audio engineer and since android is lacking in the music app department i cant say i've ever used a stylus for songwriting. but i have used it live savagelucy said, for added control in games, but, its been ages since i've played anything that wasnt a gameboy emulator on my note 2.

LCDs aren't all bad, they produce more realistic colors than OLED.

Here are some of Samsung's marketing lies....they promised a 32/64 Gig Note 2 variant but somehow it has YET to see the light of day, no news whatsoever...I think 32 gigs should be the bare minimum these days as apps and games are getting bigger by the day. Gameloft apps are a prime example of that. 16 gigs minimum should be completely abolished in the premium category

WTF??? I'm gonna be so pissed if the galaxy note 3 uses LCD. I"m desperately waiting for the note 3 but a lcd display would definitely turn me away. I'm starting to lose confidence in samsung displays. They seem like they want to give up on Amoled display's but i think that amoled displays is a selling point for their devices. I personally think Amoled displays are the best considering all their cons and i think samsung should work on them to develop them further.
