This year is coming to an end, which means one thing - next year's CES and MWC are near! This also means the "Company X will launch Y" rumors are heating up, including the rumor of a 1080p Super AMOLED display from Samsung.
We've heard the rumor already but the new chatter adds more details to the story - a 4.99" Super AMOLED display with 1080p resolution and 441ppi pixel density.
The first phones to use a 5" 1080p display are already available in some markets, but they rely on LCDs. The new display from Samsung is, of course, rumored to be used in the Galaxy S IV. What the gossip doesn't say is whether the display will use a PenTile or an RGB matrix. At this pixel density it might not make much difference but we'll see.
Anyway, the 5" 1080p Super AMOLEDs will supposedly go into production in Q1 of next year. This would be just in time for a Q2 launch (all three Galaxy S flagships launched in Q2).
Whether this rumor pans out or not, 2013 will be the year of 5" 1080p screens. HTC already started and so did Sharp, Sony (through Japan Display Inc) and LG are also reportedly working on smartphones with such units.
