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.
