It’s been a little while since we had an opportunity to talk about the Galaxy Note III, since all the Samsung rumors as of late have been dominated by the Galaxy S IV. When we were talking about it, though, a lot of the focus seemed to be on what Samsung might be planning for the Note III’s display. After all, the Note II was bold enough to grow an already large screen, so might Samsung be planning the same sort of trick for the Note III? A new rumor says “yes,” but the Note III might not be quite as large as we’d been hearing.
Previously, the number that had been tossed around was 6.3 inches, a serious step up from the current 5.5-inch Note II. Instead, the Korea Times is now reporting that the Note III could use a 5.9-inch display.
It goes on to specify that this would be an AMOLED component, which should be no surprise coming from Samsung, but there’s no word on if Samsung might try and push things up to 1080p. Upcoming Samsung hardware can never seem to shake rumors that they might be the phones to finally introduce flexible displays; this source says that it would be unlikely we’d see such a thing arrive with the Note III.
There’s no new info on when the Note III might be ready to make its debut, but if Samsung sticks to its schedule from last year, IFA 2013 might be our opportunity.
