The Galaxy Note 5 could have a ridiculously high 4K resolution display

I’m sure none of us had any doubt that Samsung would be starting work on a Galaxy Note 5 that will presumably be released in around 12 months time. Well that phone might have one killer feature: a 4K resolution display.

A source apparently told Phone Arena that the display will have a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and a pixel density of 776ppi. The Korean company is reportedly planning on unveiling the new display next August, just before announcing its new flagship phablet.

Considering the wave of Quad HD displays, like those found in the Galaxy Note 4, that have hit our phones this year, it’s hardly surprising that people are predicting we’ll be getting 4K, or Ultra HD, by this time next year.

Lets just hope that all the extra pixels stuffed into our phones displays don’t end up with those phones having pathetically small battery lives. All the high resolution in the world is useless if the phone doesn’t last long enough. That is, of course, assuming that this rumour isn’t a complete fabrication.
