Firm's roadplan during CES hints at Galaxy S4's screen details.
A roadmap displayed by Samsung during CES 2013 appears to confirm details pertaining to the Galaxy S4's screen.
AnandTech saw that the South Korean technology conglomerate was showcasing a full HD 4.99-inch screen from its display division. It's shown as a follow-on from the Samsung Galaxy Note 2's 5.55-inch screen. A PPI (pixels per-inch) of 440 is also shown for the screen.
The next-generation display is scheduled to ship to manufacturers during 2013's quarter one. Samsung said it's applied a 25 percent power saving method on the new OLED screen. A low power mode, meanwhile, could see the battery usage being almost halved.
The roadmap adds credence to a previous report suggesting that the Galaxy S4 will boast a 4.99-inch screen. The unannounced device itself is expected to be revealed during its own event ahead of its May launch.
During CES, Samsung revealed Youm, a flexible and bendable OLED display; it's expected that the Galaxy S4 will sport an unbreakable screen. The company also announced the world's first eight-core mobile processor, with the Galaxy S3's successor said to be the first device to integrate the chipset.
