The latest trend in the mobile industry seems to be the move towards 5-inch full HD displays. Companies such as HTC (2498) Sony (SNE) and LG (066570) have already added, or are planning to include, higher resolution displays on their products. Not to be left behind, Asia Economics reported on Friday that Samsung (005930) is planning to introduce a smartphone with a large 1920 x 1080 resolution display at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in January. The handset is said to be the company’s next flagship device, known as the Galaxy S IV, and will be equipped with a 5-inch full HD AMOLED display that includes a pixel density of 441 pixels-per-inch.
The report follows an earlier rumor that claimed the South Korean vendor was planning to release the Galaxy S IV this coming March. The previous report claimed the company was going to unveil the device at Mobile World Congress in February, however, rather than at CES. The Galaxy S IV is also said to include a quad-core Exynos processor and 4G LTE capabilities.
Samsung has repeatedly denied any and all Galaxy S IV rumors.
