The rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s display have reached the point of no return due to a leaked document that suggests Samsung’s next flagship will indeed feature a 5.7-inch display. If the news about the 5.7-inch QHD display didn’t satisfy your curiosity, you should probably know that the display has a 1440 pixels resolution and a 515ppi pixel density.
Some of you might think that this is just another one of those unreliable rumors that have been surfacing all around the internet lately, but check this out, the “document” referred to “Muscat”, which is the codename of the Galaxy Note 4. The model number of the Project T, the way Galaxy Note 4 is referred to within Samsung, is SM-N910. So following the naming conventions of earlier Galaxy Note models, for instance the model number of the Galaxy Note 3 is SM-N900, this rumor could turn out to be reliable.
This new leaked document that states that the Galaxy Note 4 will retain a 5.7-inch display denies all previous rumors about Samsung increasing the display size to 5.9-inch in order to maintain the size pattern used for previous Note devices. As the Note 2 featured a 5.5-inch display and the Note 3 a 5.7-inch display, we all thought the next Note model will come with an outstanding 5.9-inch display. Now that we think about it, it’s not a bad idea at all, just imagine the clarity and the intensity of colors the 1440p resolution will provide. And the fact that the 5.7-inch will have a 515ppi is also truly remarkable.
About the other rumor, concerning the three-sided display, nothing is certain because the document didn’t mention it. But now that I’ve mentioned it, the Note 4 is rumored to feature a three-sided YOUM display that is said to allow viewing of notifications from an angle. The Samsung executives did announce, if I may say so, that the Galaxy Note 4 will be different compared to the other smartphones. They didn’t say in what way, but we can guess they referred to the design. But will it be different from other Samsung smartphones? Or it will be different from all existing smartphones? We don’t know exactly, so waiting (impatiently) for the IFA in September is the best we can do for now.
