Bigger Is Better: Samsung Will Allegedly Slap A 6.3″ Display On The Galaxy Note III

Next Story Will Turn Down The Volume On Global Radio Services In January, Take Others Behind Paywall

According to the Korea Times, Samsung is trying to put a 6.3-inch display in the next iteration of the Galaxy Note. The Galaxy Note II, which launched relatively recently, debuted with a 5.5-inch display, already a step up from the original Note’s 5-inch screen.

Bigger is apparently better.

The Galaxy Note, just in case you’ve missed the hullabaloo over the past year or so, is Samsung’s combination of a phone and a tablet.

It comes with an S-pen, a glorified pressure-sensitive stylus, and has a massive display to let users draw, make notes, etc. as if they were on a tablet. At the same time, it comes with all the greatness of an Android smartphone.

Korea Times claims that officials from local parts suppliers have confirmed the 6.3-inch display, though Samsung hasn’t made anything official yet so this is still considered a rumor in my book.

The Galaxy Note saw surprisingly good sales, and the same should be true of the second-generation model, which is available now. It only makes sense that Samsung would push the brand as quickly as possible, but does a bigger display a better Galaxy Note make?

Time, and sales, will surely tell.

In related news, Korea Times also claims that Samsung is currently working on the Galaxy S IV. We originally thought it would make its debut at CES in January, but it turns out that a MWC debut in Barcelona in February is much more likely. Or so states the Korea Times.
