Samsung Might Ditch AMOLED for Galaxy Note III


We know, it’s hard to focus on anything but the Galaxy S IV for the moment, and that situation’s not likely to change until Samsung makes the phone official Thursday evening. Still, try and switch gears with us for a moment here, as some new rumors are once again returning to a subject we were talking about just last week, the display on the Galaxy Note III.

Last time, we were focused on size, with claims arriving that the Note III’s display would be a 5.9-incher, rather than the 6.3-inch component that had previously been suggested. Besides that, though, that info also arrived to suggest that the Note III would follow in the Note II’s footsteps as featuring an AMOLED screen. Today, we hear that Samsung might be interested in switching things up with an LCD from Sharp.

Supposedly, a Sharp LCD might make for a “better” S Pen experience than Samsung could offer with one of its own AMOLED panels, though this unnamed source doesn’t go into any detail over just why LCD might be a superior choice in this case. Granted, Samsung used an LCD with the Note 8.0, but with the smaller size of the Note III, we had been thinking that AMOLED might be more likely. This source suggests that Samsung hasn’t quite made up its mind on the issue.

Besides display technology, we’re also interested in learning about the Note III’s resolution; will it finally make the move to 1080p? So far, we’ve yet to hear that possibility addressed.
