A document from Samsung and Korea Investment & Securities seems to be pointing to the production of 6" inch displays for a possible new flagship device from Samsung. It also further confirms the specs for the Galaxy S4 Mini.
Oled-display.net is reporting that a document from Samsung and Korea Investment & Securities is out and points toward a new flagship device from the company that will include a 6” display. Also mentioned in the report is more details on the technical specifications for the Galaxy S4 Mini.
The images above seem to indicate that a 6 inch display will begin mass production in the second half of 2013. As of now there are no confirmed devices that will have a display of that size, so it’s reasonable to assume that this smartphone (or phablet) is unannounced. It might even be hinting at the display size that the Galaxy Note 3 will include, though we’ll have to wait for more leaks or the official announcement before we can talk about this with any accuracy at all.
Oled-display also notes that the chart indicates that the Note 3 is unlikely to have a flexible display, as it doesn’t seem Samsung Display is planning to produce enough to support a flagship product like that, and there doesn’t seem to be enough time to ramp up production before the product is likely to be announced and released later this year.
Other bits of information include more confirmation of the Galaxy S4 Mini specs seen in the image below. Furthermore, there are charts that include the comparison of LG and Samsung displays, as well as possible options for Samsung Display when it comes to their larger OLED panels used on televisions.
We’ll have to wait for official announcements to see what Samsung decides to go with in the end, but these documents certainly provide an interesting look into the plans and possibilities for their future devices.
