A new rumor tells us that Samsung is looking to launch the Galaxy Note 5 smartphone this year with a dual sided curved display panel similar to the Galaxy S6 Edge and also a 4K resolution panel. While the former seems likely given the current trend, the mention of a 4K display has certainly taken us a bit by surprise.
The company is currently pushing its 2K resolution displays on the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, so the use of a 4K display on a flagship which is just over five months away might be too quick an upgrade.
The display size will be reportedly bumped to 5.89 inches, thus keeping it under the 6 inch mark. The Galaxy Note 4 packs a 5.7 inch panel, so this will be a marginal increase over the predecessor. But what about all those pixels that the smartphone will have to crunch? Well, only time will tell.
The smartphone could also feature a next gen camera and an upgraded or over clocked version of the Exynos 7420 SoC. If this report is indeed true, Samsung will have to cram in a significantly large battery to ensure that the device runs a full day on a single charge.
What do you think about a 3840 x 2160 resolution display on a smartphone? Will it be too much?
