Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Rumoured To Be Launched In S-AMOLED And LCD Display Variants
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 continues to be one of the most eagerly anticipated smartphones in recent months. This hardly comes as a surprise, given the commercial success and critical acclaim achieved by the current Galaxy Note 2 model, which remains a dominant force in the phablet niche.
It is expected that Samsung’s upcoming flagship phablet device will sport plenty of advanced upgrades over currently available phablet models. Rumoured features of the device include a much larger display than that of the Galaxy Note 2 (which measures up at 5.5 inches), at 5.7-6 inches. A 13 megapixel camera has also been tipped, along with a Snapdragon 800 chipset, Android 4.2.2 Jellybean OS, and of course the Galaxy Note’s trademark S-Pen stylus.
Of course, the screen is likely to be the standout feature, but there has recently been speculation about the type of touchscreen panel it will use. Android Authority has reported that new rumours have suggested that there may be a shortage of Super AMOLED panels, so the South Korean manufacturer may utilise LCD displays. The website suggests that huge demand for the Galaxy S4, along with the success of Samsung’s OLED TVs has put a lot of strain on Samsung’s display manufacturing capabilities, so there may not be ample resources to make enough to fulfil demand for the Galaxy Note 3. The website further suggests that multiple models will be launched with both types of display, to ensure that production of the phone is not affected, should there be a shortage of S-AMOLED displays.
Remember though, the Samsung Galaxy S4 was subject to a similar rumour ahead of its launch earlier this year, but the device was indeed released with Samsung’s renowned Super-AMOLED display technology. If there is a shortage of S-AMOLED displays, Samsung always has the option of outsourcing screen production to companies like Sharp, which Samsung owns a minority share of.
Remember though, this is a rumour at this point, and not official information from Samsung. If we hear of any more news about the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 ahead of its speculated September announcement, we will let you know.
