With the new year slowly creeping in, the rumors regarding the next generation smartphones have also started circulating. The company which seems to be on top of the list is - not surprisingly - Samsung, with rumors surrounding its popular Galaxy smartphones surfacing frequently.
With every passing week it seems new rumors are taking shape almost every day, with the latest one stating that the next generation and the future Galaxy Note smartphone from Samsung could be a massive 6.3-inches.
The new report has arrived from The Korea Times report which states that Samsung is already working on a Galaxy Note 3 with a gigantic 6.3-inch display which, theoretically, is some eight-tenths of an inch larger than the already massive Galaxy Note 2. However, while the news cannot be confirmed as of now, a trusted source told The Verge that at “some point in the next year, and it could be very late in the year, we might fill in the largest gap in our screen size lineup.”
Now, a 6.3-inch device may sound a bit too much and leaves doubts in the minds of Android and Samsung fans. The Verge wondered as to how “a normal human would hold a 6.3-inch phone is unclear. Samsung could possibly get to 5.8 inches without increasing the size of the current Galaxy Note II's body if it were able to eliminate portions of the bezel as Motorola has done with the RAZR M, but that's about it. In other words, the phone would definitely have to get bigger than it is today in order to accommodate a 6.3-inch screen.”
Additionally, while it was earlier reported that the next Samsung Galaxy S4 would arrive with some new display technology, supposedly resulting in an unbreakable screen and possibly even being outright flexible, The Verge now reports that Samsung’s flexible tech is still quite a while away from showing up in any smartphones.
However, while a 1080p display may sound like it could very much be in the works, a flexible or crack-proof screen could still take some time, maybe with the arrival of a more futuristic Galaxy S5. Nonetheless, that’s just a speculation.
