It has been widely rumored that the Samsung Galaxy Note III will feature a 5.9-inch display, but the latest word is that it will only have a 5.7-incher. I guess this really isn’t surprising since the original Note had a 5.3-inch display and the Note II had a 5.5-incher. If you’re doing the math, that’s an upgrade of 0.2-inches.
While a handful of rumors regarding the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note III have been floating around the internet, the most speculation has been given to the device’s screen. Early rumors predicted that we’d see Samsung’s first flexible display, but with delays getting those to market it looks like that will not be the case.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 has been rumored for quite a while now, but we haven’t had any formidable evidence of its existence until now. Today, the 10.1 inch LTE tablet has passed through the FCC certification process, hinting at a launch soon.
Back in January we heard about a Samsung device destined for Europe called the Galaxy Fonblet. Some thought it was going to be a media player only, but it looks like it will be classified as a tablet. Back in January it was expected to sport a 5.8-inch display, but it is now confirmed to have a 6.3-inch display.
The first Samsung Galaxy Note featured a display of 5.3-inches, which many considered half phone half tablet (or phablet). Then came an actual tablet, the Galaxy Note 10.1, sported a 10.1-inch display. Of course more recently the original Note was upgraded to the Galaxy Note II with a slightly bigger display, at 5.5-inches. There has to be a 7-inch tablet in the works right?
Could the end of broken displays truly be upon us? It appears that Samsung is certainly working hard behind the scenes for that to be a reality. Early rumors are reporting that with Samsung’s forthcoming Galaxy S III smartphone, the manufacturing giant is also planning on bringing a major first to the industry— the world’s first plastic OLED display.
If you went into a cave three years ago and just came out, you probably would be shocked at the size of some of the displays that smartphones have been sporting. I remember when the DROID X was released and everyone was saying it was huge. Now that same screen size is on the DROID RAZR M (M for micro). Then there was the original Samsung Galaxy Note, which boasted a 5.3-inch display.
