Samsung to show a 5" Full HD Super AMOLED display at CES in January, might go in the Galaxy S IV

This rumor is reported exclusive by a Korean paper, claiming inside info from Samsung officials, and we already heard a similar claim by another Korean publication, but no size was mentioned then. What we can grasp from Google's translation, is that Samsung has been dedicating resources into the Full HD AMOLED, instead of mobile LCD arena, since it is the OLED-based displays that are its differentiating factor before the competition.
Given that the Droid DNA just appeared, the Sony Yuga and Odin are coming with 1080 screens next year, LG shouldn't be far behind as it has a Full HD LCD panel developed, and Sharp is now selling an Aquos SH903W in Russia with a 5" 1920x1080 display of its own making, it is only logical that Samsung is prepared to wow with something different. The AMOLED panel is claimed to be very thin, with low power consumption, as well as high contrast and refresh rate, which are staples for OLED-based screens, but we'll save judgement for when we eventually see it at CES.
The official said the display is with 441ppi pixel density, which is pretty close to the perfect human vision. A combination of the current FMM production method, suitable for mass production, and the more advanced LITI technology, which is cheaper, but can't be scaled sufficiently, is supposedly being used to arrive at the 5-incher with 1920x1080 resolution.
It reportedly depends on the mass production scaling whether we are to see this thing in the Galaxy S IV in Q2 next year, but Samsung has a few months to work out the kinks, and it already proved it can do an excellent non-PenTile HD Super AMOLED in the Note II with a new production method, so we are keeping our hopes high. The source also says that the Samsung Electronics chief demanded that a Full HD AMOLED be used in the S IV, instead of an LCD, as that's the company's unique proposition, so the engineers seem greenlit to trash another football field of display glass and figure it out.
Moreover, we were tipped back in September that Samsung flaunted a 5.8" ClorOLED screen with 358ppi, allegedly for the Note III, so next year might indeed shape up to be the year of Full HD mobile screens, be they LCD or AMOLED, for flagship phones across the board.
- 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)

This better be good, Samsung. otherwise, the Sony Yuga may overtake you.

For GS4 1080p is a must, and HTC screen perhaps is impossible to beat with a AMOLED. Still I think GS4 will be a success but not b-c of the screen.

ok. 5.8 inches. I'm fine with that, but please don't make it bigger than 6 inch anymore. I have a note 2, it was quite big when I started using it, now I got used to it and it perfectly suites my style. BUT more than 0.5 inches larger than that wouldn't be called a phone, you can barely hold it to call someone for a decent duration of time!

Mr./Mrs. -@nobelset- I have to disagree with you on this one. We the people of the "Phablet" world. Do hereby demand our ratio of 16:10 screen display back!!! 16:9 is a ratio of smartphone user; We are the "Party of Phablet"... And use our Phablets, we will. Here’s what Yusim proposes when designing the Galaxy Note 2: 6.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution Size: 161.9 x 84.9 x 8.9 Weight: 220g 2.0GHz quad core Cortex-A15 processor 3GB of RAM 32/64/128GB memory 16-meagpixel camera with Auto Focus, LED Flash and BSI 3-megapixel front-facing camera with BSI, Best Photo, Best Faces, Low light shot Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Wi-Fhi Direct Bluetooth 5.0 USB 3.0 Host mHL NFC A-GPS, Glonass support 4,000mAh battery Android 5.0 "This should be just in time for the Note III though"... Here's to HOPING. :)

The logos don't take up space, they just fill it. There are components that can't be placed behind the screen(front camera, earphone, sensors, and i guess some internals), also the Galaxy Nexus doesn't have a logo on the front.

if only they would make them edge(left side) to edge(right side) to edge(top) and leave the bottom for the S voice home button then they could fit a huge screen on a small phone :) put the manufacture and carrier stuff on the back where it belongs. we know who made the phone and who are carrier is, we dont need a reminder lol

With the pentile display, the odd number of pixels and weird placings make the screen look funny, and gets worse as the ppi goes down. Like on a galaxy s, the voodoo sound icon is absolutely munted. Although with the rgb placement of note 2, its still got one massive blue pixel, does that effect the display? or not really? but anyway, hope to see a full even rgb from samsung!

UHa, what? Samsung makes many different sizes and shapes of phones, also for different OSes. I'm a OG-Note user, getting ready to get multi-window, airview, & all kinds of smart updates that go with the upgrade. You got to be kidding right? The Note III will be a Beast!!! You must be using another smartphone iHTC or ect...; or you're not reading these articles with your eyes open. :/ @harsh_doshi

Wow, these phones are really getting bigger & bigger each year. After my time is done with the Galaxy S3, I am seriously considering reverting back to a phone with a 4.3" display. I kind of miss the ergonomics of a phone that size.

If they can make the S4 size a bit smaller and have a 5" screen, I'm all for it. Hell, make the screen bendable so I can open my phone like a flip phone and get more screen size.

Well, the DNA showed that a 5 inch can fit within less width than the s3' frame. And it's only 5mm taller. And there's still some vertical room left, even without the on screen keys. Anyway I'm pretty sure Samsung won't make the S4 larger than the s3 is

One reason i always buy samsung is because of amoled. If its going full hd now then thats an extra good news for me. Phonearena can blub all they like but am still down with amoleds.lcd just doesnt cut it for me. Wish my 46" tv was also amoled.
