Although the rumor has been ringing for quite some time, it seems that PhoneArena has it clearer than ever: the Galaxy Note 5 would come out at the end of the year with a 3840×2160 screen, that is, 4K.
Samsung already confirmed at the Analyst Days that it was working on a 4K resolution Super AMOLED display for 2015, and also stated at the end of January that a new smartphone with a resolution higher than QHD was in development for the not too distant future. The matrix of this display would have a diamond-shaped pixel distribution, that is, something similar to Pentile, with a density above 700 dpi, which will make the subpixels not visible to the naked eye… another different thing is what will happen in a virtual reality viewer, of course.
The latest information received by PhoneArena is that Samsung will use this screen, which will begin mass production in August, in the Galaxy Note 5. The diagonal will be 5.78″ for Note 5 Edge and 5.89 for the plane, which would have respectively 762 and 748 dpi. The Note 5 will almost certainly come accompanied by the commercial version of Samsung Gear VR, we will see if exclusive for this mobile or also compatible with the Note 4. In any case, we hope that the Note 5 will be accompanied by a good increase in graphic power compared to the 4, since achieving fluidity with that 3D screen is going to be a very complicated task.
