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.

Could it be the Samsung Galaxy S5 or the Samsung Galaxy Round2?!

Samsung is expected to debut some new smartphones in 2014 such as the Galaxy S5 along with the Galaxy Note 3 Lite. It's rumored that Samsung will disclose both devices in February or March.
As Fone Arena reports (Dec.4), a whole new mystery device from Samsung appears inside the GFXBench database under the model number SM-G900S. Detailed specs from the device are revealed, indicating that this SM-G900S may be either the Galaxy S5 or another Samsung device, the Galaxy Round 2.
The 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Round phone, model number SM-G910S was published in October, exclusively in South Korea. It's the world's first curved Super AMOLED display smartphone and was manufactured in limited quantities. Since the model number series is comparable to the SM-G900S device, speculation points for the possibility of a Galaxy Round 2.
Revealed specs from the SM-G900S mystery device resemble the rumored specs of the upcoming 5-inch Samsung Galaxy S5. Featured on the device is similar 2560 x 1440 display resolution and Android 4.4 KitKat OS. The key difference is that the mystery device comes with a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, as the Samsung Galaxy S5 is rumored to feature a 64-bit A7 chip.
While the processor differs from the Galaxy S5, it matches the quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor found for the Samsung Galaxy Round, which sports a lesser clock speed of 2.3 GHz. Samsung generally seems to have bumped up the clock speed slightly, if it is to be believed that this SM-G900S could be the Galaxy Round 2. The mystery device also features an Adreno 330 GPU, also found for the Galaxy Round.
Fone Arena points out  the 2560 x 1440 display size with the SM-G900S might be an indication the device may well have a 5.25-inch display with pixel density of 560ppi. Earlier this year, Samsung revealed its intends to intro 560ppi display phones in the market in 2014. The 5-inch display size in the SM-G900S mystery device puts it closer to the size with the rumored 5-inch display of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5.
Although Samsung is anticipated to announce a mid-range version of the Galaxy Note 3, the mystery device is not likely to be the Galaxy Note 3 Lite. According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Note 3 Lite is predicted to feature an LCD display as opposed to Super AMOLED display technology. The SM-G900S mystery device specs reveal a Super AMOLED display, ruling out the chance of it being the Note 3 Lite.
If the mystery device turns out to become the Galaxy Round 2, it could possibly mean that Samsung was successful enough using the Galaxy Round that it could be setting plans for a global release.
