Recent rumors suggested the fact that Samsung is preparing for releasing a 4K Ultra HD Super AMOLED display for the next edition Galaxy Note series. As a matter of fact, the South Korean manufacturer will start mass-producing a 5.9” 4K display with 700+ppi next August, which puts the company’s plans in the right timeframe for the Note 5 release, scheduled to be announced at the IFA expo in September 2015.
Even if this is barely a rumor, you should take into consideration the fact that Samsung itself confirmed in its Analyst Days presentation slides last year that it has UGD 2160 x 3840 pixel AMOLED displays for mobile in the works for 2015. Alternatively, Samsung also hinted at higher-resolution UHD Smartphone displays in the pipeline.
These resolutions were also mentioned along with diamond pixel term, which represents a non-standard pixel matrix arrangement. However, with a 700 + ppi display, no one will pay attention to the individual pixels.
This year, along with the release of Galaxy Note 4, Samsung launched its most impressive display yet, a 5.7-inch QHD 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED panel. As you can see, 2015 will bring a UHD Super AMOLED display features a resolution of 3840 x 2160, size still uncertain.
The reported 5.9” size comes from a single source. Therefore, it is still uncertain whether the device will have this size, or Samsung chooses to opt for a bigger one. It is also stated that mass production of these UHD panels would be in August of 2015.
In the same time, Sharp was recently rumored to work on a 4K mobile display as well, in the 5.5”-6” diagonal range, so the next year will come with a bunch of surprises in the terms of resolution count.
Along with this impressive pixel resolution, we can also expect a Snapdragon 810 chipset, which should be ready for prime time then and a higher resolution camera with optical image stabilization. However, until then, I am sure that we will find out many other exciting details.
