It has long been assumed that Samsung’s next addition to the Galaxy Note range will have a 5.9 or 6.0 inch display, but the latest rumours suggest that it will in fact get a slightly more modest update in the screen department.
The Korea Herald reports that the Galaxy Note 3, which is set to be unveiled at this year’s IFA conference in September, will have a 5.7 inch display. This is slightly larger than the 5.5 inch panel found on the Galaxy Note 2.
The other persistent rumour about the display, which argues that it will have a full HD 1080p resolution, seems to be enduring, in spite of the revised expectations for its actual area.
The idea of giving the Galaxy Note 3 a 5.7 inch screen rather than a 6.0 inch one, might appeal to some buyers, since it suggests that Samsung might even be able to retain the same physical dimensions as its predecessor.
With the Galaxy Note range becoming ever larger by the year, there is a danger that its portability will be compromised. But a more gradual approach to growth could help to curb any issues.
