As Samsung Galaxy S4 is ready to be unveiled to the public, the rumor mill has apparently shifted its focus onto the next Galaxy product and this time, the news is all about Galaxy Note 3. According to fresh reports, Galaxy Note 3 may turn to an LCD instead of AMOLED to provide an improved S-Pen experience for its users.
As always, the report comes from Sam Mobile, a relatively reliable source for Samsung rumors. According to an unnamed insider source, the Samsung top brass is in the process of making a final decision on what kind of screen to be used for the Galaxy Note 3. The tipster feels that LCD by Sharp is the best LCD display ever and that Samsung could make the S-Pen experience better with LCD than with AMOLED/PHOLED.
The news should be read in the context of Samsung's recent acquisition of a part of Sharp which is presumably done with the focus on LCD panels. In addition, Samsung also chose to use the LCD panels on its latest Note series, the Galaxy Note 8.0.
"Samsung's focus is to use OLED products in bigger things like tablets, flexible display and high-end smartphones. But the insider confirmed for the second time, LCD is better for the SPEN experience," Sam Mobile confirms Samsung's plans on OLED panels.
The next-generation Galaxy Note, widely known as Galaxy Note 3, was recently rumored to feature a 5.9-inch OLED display. The device will be powered by the in-house Exynos octa-core chipset.
The Korea Times had speculated that the company would release the large sized device in the latter half of the year to solidify its leading position in the rapidly-growing phablet market.
The South Korean tech titan apparently wants to strengthen its foothold in the phablet market where its dominance has been questioned by an influx of products in the similar size range from Chinese rivals such as ZTE and Huawei. The report also had confirmed that Samsung is unlikely to use the much-talked about flexible display technology for Galaxy Note 3 as its display making affiliate, Samsung Display is finding it hard to meet the demand.
