4K Display In your Pocket? could it be for the Galaxy Note 4?!

When it comes to Samsung, most people are pretty much dedicated to the news in connection with upcoming Galaxy S5 handset. What’s passing us by is news for the Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung has finally discussed it initially in public.

During the Seminconductor and Display Technology Roadmap Seminar 2014, Samsung confirmed it is working on an AMOLED QHD smartphone. Straight after announcing that, the Korean manufacturer then revealed it can be working on something more impressive.

Samsung revealed it's plans to have an AMOLED Ultra HD, 3480x2160 pixel smartphone display. Considering it’ll bring with it 820 pixels-per-inch on the 5-inch display, that's pretty awesome news. We shouldn’t be able to ahead of ourselves though, this is apparently a long way off.

But would the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 be able to include a 4K display? It’s unlikely considering we haven’t got our hands on a high end smartphone using a 2K display at this time but anything can be done. Samsung is clearly planning way into the long run so maybe the Galaxy Note 5 will be the step up to some 4K display on your bottom line? Exciting!
Samsung’s mobile chief Lee Young Hee has revealed a great deal about the company’s plans for 2014 including a release window and features for that Galaxy S5.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 could use a "three sided" display



During an interview with Bloomberg, the executive also said another Galaxy Note might use a “three sided display” and will also be designed so users can read messages with an angle. That's a pretty difficult idea to imagine, nonetheless it sounds cool nonetheless. Could this certainly be a creative use of Samsung's flexible OLED tech as we saw demonstrated on prototypes at CES 2012?

Hee added this Galaxy Note successor, which we are able to only assume being the Galaxy Note 4 is going to be released within the second half of 2014 and will probably be aimed at the high-end market. That certainly is smart, Samsung has additionally been rumoured to be developing a cheaper Galaxy Note "Lite" model, nevertheless it's unlikely which a budget edition would experiement with fancy new display technology so as to keep the cost down.

Hee said, “We are targeting consumers who wish more professional use and tend to get willing to pay more for handsets.”

She didn’t elaborate how exactly the triple-sided display is acceptable, but we’re sure to be hearing a little more about that inside the coming months. As soon as we do we’ll keep you posted.

Hee also confirmed the Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch is going to be released alongside the Galaxy S5. The Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Gear 2 will likely be released "around March and April" making those rumours of an announcement at MWC 2014 even more likely.
