Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may keep predecessor’s screen size but up resolution

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Most of the Samsung leaks coming out of the rumor mill lately have focused on the premium version of the Galaxy S5, which could feature a 2560×1440 display. Today we’re switching our focus a bit, though, turning our attention toward another device that could feature a super high-res screen of its own.

A new leak from GSMArena claims that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 will feature a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 display. That’s the same screen size as the Galaxy Note 3, but the resolution is much higher than the current-gen Note’s 1920×1080 screen. The Note 4 is also rumored to feature the codename “T (Muscat).”

Details on the Galaxy Note 4 have been fairly light so far. One Samsung exec suggested that the device may feature a bendable display, but he went on to caution that nothing bas been finalized quite yet.

While we’ll have to wait and see whether or not the next-gen Note does indeed pack a 5.7-inch QHD screen, there are some reasons why Samsung could decide to go that route. While the company has increased the size of the Note from generation to generation, the 5.7-inch Note 3 is starting to get close to super-large, Galaxy Mega territory. Considering both that and the fact that a 2560×1440 display would be a notable jump in resolution from the Note 3, I could certainly see why Samsung would opt to include a 5.7-inch QHD screen in the Note 4.

What do you make of this rumor? Would you be happy with a Galaxy Note 4 that featured a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 display?
