Galaxy S4 With 1080p Super AMOLED Could Debut at CES

Samsung is said to be preparing to unveil the Galaxy S4 that features a 4.99-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display at CES in January, 2013.

According to a Samsung official speaking to a Korean newspaper, the firm said it'll reveal a handset boasting an ultra-thin AMOLED material and a screen with a 441 pixel per inch density. While they didn't confirm the device itself, it's undoubtedly the Galaxy S3's successor, especially with such high-end specifications. The Galaxy S4 is also expected feature a resolution of 1920 x 1080.

The paper's source said Samsung is utilizing its current mass production method, as well as advanced LITI technology to see the smartphone come into fruition.

The insider also said that the head of Samsung Electronics demanded the S4 offers a full HD AMOLED display and not LCD in order to give it a unique selling point over fellow heavyweights such as the soon-to-be-released Droid DNA, in addition to the rumored Sony devices Yuga and Odin.

Production for the Galaxy S4, meanwhile, is said to have commenced, with a launch period set for the first half of 2013.

    I suppose it would be good for 1080p movie watching, but otherwise, what is the point of a 441ppi display? I can't tell much difference after 300ppi. Give me 350ppi and a longer battery life, or brighter screen!

    I really wish they would make a galaxy with battery can last more than a day, I don't mind if they use lower gen screens and cpu.

    am I the only one that wants a flagship phone maybe around 4.3-4.5 inches? the s3 is a great phone but i don't mind something a bit smaller with all the latest hardware.

    all this 1080p is crazy, i rather get improved battery life, micro-sd card, and a removable battery which seems to be lacking in a lot of the new flagships

    otacon72Sucks for everyone who just bought the S3...lmao. Android devices are obsolete after 3-4 months now.
    The S3 came out in may. The s4 will likely be in march if shown in January. 3 months, 10 months. Same difference right /sarcasm

    Sounds great, but the difference b/w 720p and 1080p on a phone is virtually indistinguishable. 1080p will be a bit more crisp and better for movie watching, but it drains the battery. Once battery tech is better, 1080p will be more viable. And what's with the larger screen? The GNote I/II are great phones, even though though I prefer something in the 4.7-4.8" range. However, at 4.8", the GSIII feels great, but it's on the limit of what I'd want. I think Samsung would alienate some customers by making a 5" screen size. 4.8" is perfect. Just keep it that way.

    It's a choice to have low battery life. My 3500mah battery and door for my S2 were 20 bucks, has worked flawlessly for months, lasts through a 10 hour shift with constant usage and life to spare, and last days with normal usage.

    Check YouTube for some Note 2 battery reviews.
    My note 2 last all day and then some. I run live wallpaper all day. I would say that 1080p may not be needed as a better battery. 1080p may not be a noticeable improvement over 720p on a 5 inch screen. It may just be for bragging rights.
