Samsung Galaxy Note 4 again rumored to pack 5.7-inch 2560×1440 screen


Because of their massive displays, one of the most widely-discussed aspects of Samsung’s Galaxy Note smartphones are their screens. That’s why it should come as no surprise that the rumor mill is busy trying to find out what kind of display the Galaxy Note 4 will sport.

Today two new leaks have added support to previous rumors that’ve claimed to have information on the Note 4’s screen. First up, a user agent profile (UAProf) for the SM-N910A has been found on Samsung’s website. The SM-N910A, which is expected to be the AT&T flavor of the Note 4, is listed as sporting a 2560×1440 display resolution.


Moving on to screen size, Indian import tracking site Zauba has its own entry for the SM-N910A. The site lists the N910A as packing a 5.7-inch display.

Samsung has increased the screen size of its Galaxy Note smartphones, moving from 5.3 inches on the original Galaxy Note to 5.5 on the Note II and 5.7 on the Note 3. It looks like that trend might come to an end with the Note 4, which isn’t a total shock since going even larger would put the Note 4 in Galaxy Mega territory. The good news is that it appears that Samsung won’t simply be reusing the Note 3’s display in the Note 4, opting instead to bump up its screen resolution to a super high-res 2560×1440.

Do you hope that the Galaxy Note 4 will feature a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 screen or would you rather see Samsung use a bigger screen on the device?

    1080 was fine for me. Higher resolution and more powerful processor only means even more battery draining, with the same battery size and technology… no good.

      My Zerolemon 9300 mAh lasts 4 days with wifi, gps and blutooth all on, before I need to recharge.

    Same size? I’m down! But yes, I actually do want QHD. In such a large display, it makes sense. I can see pixels on the Note 3, it would be nice not to.

    • BlazeHN

      Are you aware that the price to eliminate the “I kinda see pixels sometimes for some seconds on a 1080p screen” (very minor/irrelevant issue honestly) would be a permanent and very higher battery drain with the same battery size and technology? (a very critical and noticeable matter).

    Well, I’ve seen predictions of screen size as 5.7, 5.9, 6.0. And yet all are flat screens. That doesn’t seem like much of a “new form factor” as promised by Samsung. One guess indicated a curved screen. That also doesn’t sound interesting. The Round already fits that slot. If these speculations are anywhere close to right, I will wait until next year with the Note5 that, yes it is has already been speculated, will have a foldable screen.

    The speaker absolutely must be on the front or my note 3 is my last samsung. The second note 3 deficiency that needs to be addressed is the pathetic indoor and lowlight photography. OIS is a must as well. No decrease in battery life (in light of a more power hungry screen) is another must have and an improvement in battery life (or an option for a bigger battery would be great). I’m an app hog so 4gb ram and a 64gb option would be great.
    Must have- front speaker, camera, battery life
    Good plusses- QHD, 4&64gb
    Additional- native themer (or at least the ability to choose light/dark/slate themes)

    IF the bezel is small, I can handle a screen up to 6″. I never had a 5-6″ QHD display, so I don’t know if you can tell the difference in this screen size. I prefer higher brightness and wider view angles, so first generations screens are not always great to me.

  • Adam

    Currently using the Note 3 and have no problem with 1080p, don’t really see the need to increase it. I’d much prefer it if Samsung instead stopped filling their phones with crapware and modifying their menus to become so difficult to navigate. Looking at the Sense 6 and LG layouts Samsung is starting to look way behind in terms of design.

  • BlazeHN

    My dream Note 4:

    5.7″ 1080p shatterproof screen (or 5.8″ – 6″ if they remove the bezels to keep almost the same size of the Note 3)
    Snapdragon 805 / Exynos
    4 GB RAM
    Base 64 GB Storage
    Micro SD slot
    16 MP Camera (I dont care about MP number, but I suppose they will just put the same S5 camera)
    3600 – 3900 mAh battery. That can be achieved by actually making the phone a very very little (and non really noticeable) more thick instead of making it more paper thin.
    Water resistant
    Dust resistant
    IR Sensor
    I dont really care about metal body, I actually like A LOT the leather finish of my Note 3 and how it feels on your fingers, I have the feeling that I wont like aluminium and also sounds way more scratcheable.
    All the assumed sensors and other features.
    Maybe a lighther and less resource consuming Touchwiz version?

    And then, TAKE MY MONEY SAMSUNG!!!

      I forgot to mention removable battery, but I suppose that is a staple on Samsung.
