Samsung Galaxy Note 3 display news and size detailed


If you’ve been waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (Note III) then some more information has been detailed today and it’s claimed that the next flagship Samsung phablet will have a 6-inch display but that it will not be one of the flexible displays that Samsung has been developing. It is likely to be an AMOLED display rather than an LCD display though.

For some time now there have been rumors that the Galaxy Note 3 will have a step up in display size from the current Note 2 and we have heard several times that the display might be around 5.99-inches. Recently we also heard that the next Galaxy Note would have a complete redesign with in increase in display size that would not affect the overall phone size too much as the bezels would be smaller in size.

The latest report seems to back this up with sources claiming that Samsung will introduce its first 6-inch smartphones this year and that a flagship device will also have a 6-inch display. Although some reports are saying that this confirms a 6-inch Galaxy Note 3, as it’s not official we hesitate to repeat this. However it does look virtually certain that a 6-inch flagship device would be the Note 3.

The same source also states that the 6-inch display will be an AMOLED display rather than an LCD display. If you were expecting that the Galaxy Note 3 would feature one of the new flexible displays that we’ve heard so much about, it now appears that mass production of these displays will not be underway in time for the Note 3. It’s reported that both Samsung and LG are seeing delays to their productions of flexible displays.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was released in September last year and so it seems logical that the Note 3 may be released around the same time in the fall. The two reports that we link to below differ slightly in the timeframes given. While one states that the new flagship 6-inch model (thought to be the Galaxy Note 3) is confirmed for Q2 this year, the other report says that it will be introduced in the second half of the year. It’s possible of course that it will be announced in Q2 but release in fall as we expected but at present we cannot give firm details on this.

We’d like to know if you’re pleased to hear that the Galaxy Note 3 display size looks set to increase to six inches from the 5.5-inches of the Galaxy Note 2? Are you disappointed that it now looks unlikely that the Galaxy Note 3 will feature a flexible display? Let us have your comments.

    As an Apple Iphone owner looking to change I’m glad that the GN 3 will have known tech. I don’t won’t to have to worry about being a beta tester.

  2. I was all set to change my note 2 for a note 3. But if its not gonna b flexible display I would rather wait else note 3 will become extremely old fashion when next galaxy would come with flexible display.

    I still can’t wait for the GN3. Not sure about it being 6″ but in the overall perspective….half inch more really isn’t too much for a great phone like this one. Flex screen would be nice, but an otter box would keep it safe!

  4. Okami says:

    If only 6 inch I would not change from my GNote. Should be at least 6.3 inch

    and not only grow in length .

    Display width of the Note 1 to Note 2 actually decreased !

    If the NOTE 3 comes with a removable battery and an SD Card slot or even two SD Card slots(with one card working at a time…just an input for an extra wish!!!)… Then I will be extremely happy. I also want Samsung to re-introduce the slot for a lanyard so that I don’t drop my phone.. If Samsung respect the above wish then I will be one of the first to buy the phone.I am sure the phone will be one of the most successful gadgets of 2013…but if it has a non removable battery then I will never buy it. So Samsung please do not forget..DONT LET ME DOWN…THANK YOU.

    I was hoping to see the unbreakable flexible OLED display. I hope Samsung keeps there removable battery and expandable memory. I don’t really care if it is made out of plastic or metal as long as it has the removable battery and expandable memory. Most people put their phone in a case anyways so I don’t know why they complain about the plastic. I prefer the plastic because I don’t use a case and it is easier to replace, cheaper to replace, more durable, doesn’t show scratches as easily, still looks good after 6 months to a year, grips to your fingers easier, and is lighter then metal. But really the most important stuff for a phone is the screen display, speed of the phone, upload and download speed capabilities, reception capabilities, clarity of voice, durability when dropped, what the phone can do to make your life easier, great camera, and software. I like all the bells and whistles and the innovations Samsung has been coming out with. As long as they keep it up, I will continue to get their products.

    No, 5.8 is fine. Actually like the 5.5 of the current Note 2. The Note 2 is perfect. More battery life and a display we can see outside and wireless charging and you have a winner that will outsell the S4. Don’t need any larger storage and don’t need any more pixels. A faster camera would be great though. Many of us use the phone as a camera and also as a note taker. (Imagine that). Carbon fiber is where the material needs to be for construction not metal. Give us this phone and just maybe we can keep for more than a year. 😉

      I won’t be buying the note 3 as I recently used an upgrade a couple months ago on a DNA, but I would say more pixels is a good thing. I can tell a difference between it and an S3 which has more ppi than a note 2. There is no reason for the note 3 not to be 1080p if it’s increasing in size.

    I love the Note so I can’t wait to see the new product! And Faster speed!. Carbon Fiber would be a great thing to see!
