Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to Sport 6.3-inch Full HD Display, Can It Get Even Bigger?

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Just when I though that the tablets won’t get above the 5.5-inch threshold, the rumor mill speculates that the South Korea-based phone maker is preparing a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with an even bigger display, that is almost close to the size of a 7-inch tablet.

According to the information published in Korea Times, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will pack a huge 6.3-inch display with full HD resolution, making it the biggest touch panel ever installed on a smartphone.

Just like it happened with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, the smartphone enthusiasts willing to pass into the thin border that now separates the smartphones from compact tablets are rewarded with top performance and good battery life, but most important, a display that is perfect for web browsing, gaming and video playback.

The jump from the 5.3-inch display used for the first Samsung Galaxy Note to the 5.5-inches of the Galaxy Note 2, pales in front of the 0.8 inches added to reach a screen diagonal of 6.3 inches, planned for the touch panel of the yet-unannounced Galaxy Note 3.

Apparently, Samsung’s courage to fit a 6.3-inch display on the Galaxy Note 3 is based on the impressive sales figures reported for Galaxy Note 2, which points that there are a lot of enthusiasts out there willing to spend their money on smartphones with huge displays.

It’s obvious that the customers have turned their attention to the smartphones with 4.5+ inch displays, as Samsung’s Galaxy S3 flagship together with Galaxy Note 2 have bit a big chunk of iPhone 5’s market share.

As about the successor of Samsung Galaxy S3, the same Korean publication claims that the next-gen Samsung flagship, unofficially dubbed Galaxy S4, will be unveiled in February 2013, at Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona. Still, the previous launches are indicating that Samsung prefers to unveil its flagship devices during Unpacked events, just like it happened with Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2.

    Very interesting. I am just starting research into a new mobile, set to move away from Nokia after many years and models. I found the Galaxy Note and Note 2 to have brilliant display and easy to use after a couple of minutes in the shop. The size of the screen is a winner for me. If the new Note 3 is larger with more functionality why would you want a tablet when you have all of this in a phone? I look forward to seeing what comes out of Samsung as I leave Nokia who could not move with the times.

      exactly, if the phablet category could deal with a device slightly short than 7”, it makes compact tablet redundant.
