A new rumor suggests that Samsung will be showing off a new 4.99-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at CES in January 2013. This is the same time that the company is expected to show off its new “global look”. Connecting the dots, it seems possible the new display could be meant for the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Months ago, rumors claimed that the Galaxy S4 would emerge at MWC, though Samsung denied the rumors as baseless at the time. With a new 4.99-inch 1080p screen coming, several online publications are now suggesting that Samsung might be planning to arm its Galaxy S4 flagship phone with the new 1080p display.
Keep in mind this doesn’t necessarily mean the overall dimensions of the phone would have to be much bigger. Honestly, if they make the bezel thin, it’s possible the display could fit into a chassis that isn’t much larger than the S3. Will the Samsung Galaxy S4 will actually be shown at CES? While its possible, don’t be surprised if we only hear about the display first. We might also learn that there was no truth to these claims at all. Until we have more definitive information, I’d take this rumor with a grain of salt.
What do you think about the idea of a 5-inch Samsung Galaxy S4?
