Samsung showed off its Full HD Super AMOLED display at CES, which is expected to ship sometime this quarter. The Full HD display is 4.99-inches, which is the rumored screen size of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S IV.
The new display will have a 1920 x 1080 resolution with 440PPI, and will also use 25% less battery than its competitors. The Samsung Galaxy S IV may also be running Samsung’s latest and greatest Exynos5 Octa processor, which is rumored to be using a current gen PowerVR 544MP3 GPU.
Samsung also showed off these displays in some concept products. The interesting thing about them is that a few of them were curved displays.
Now these aren’t the flexible OLED displays Samsung were showing off at their press conference, but they do have a slight bend to them. The curved displays could lead to some interesting software developments later on, one example being that the curved portion of the display will feature all of the user’s notifications.
The Samsung Galaxy S IV is slowly being leaked out. Now it’s pretty unlikely that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will feature a curved display, but I would love to see how Samsung would pull this off.
In about a month, we should be hearing the full details of the Samsung Galaxy S IV at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
