Samsung Galaxy Note 5 may have 6-inch 4K display

Samsung could fit its next phablet, the Galaxy Note 5, with a pixel-packed 4K display, if reports are to be believed.

The dust has barely settled on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4‘s launch – and a fine phone it is too – but the internet is already looking to the next big thing.

According to PhoneArena, the big brother to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 will sport a stunning display. The website has received a tip that Samsung will start producing a 5.9-inch Ultra HD Super AMOLED display next August, which would make it ripe for release with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

And yes, we mean the same Ultra HD standard that is currently being applied to 4K TV sets. The current Quad HD standard witnessed in the Note 4, LG G3, and the imminent Nexus 6, sports a mere 2K resolution.

The result of this new UHD technology, when applied to a 5.9-inch display, will be a pixel density of around 746ppi – well over double that of the iPhone 6.

Samsung itself has confirmed that it has a UHD 3840 x 2160 AMOLED display in the works for 2015, so this tip seems highly plausible.

Qualcomm predicted that 4K smartphones would be the next big thing way back in January, but it seems 2015 will be the year that puts UHD resolutions in your hand.
