Samsung Working On A Galaxy Note 3 With A 6-Inch Screen


 Samsung Working On A Galaxy Note 3 With A 6-Inch Screen

Samsung Electronics may be looking to blur the lines between a phone and tablet even further.

The Korean electronics giant is working on a bigger 6.3-inch display for the Galaxy Note 3, according to the Korea Times.


Samsung has pioneered the category that some refer to as the "phablet" segment, or something between a smartphone and tablet. Initially mocked for its size, Samsung saw decent sales of the first over-sized Galaxy Note, and pushed for wider distribution with the successor Galaxy Note 2, which saw its display grow to 5.5 inches from 5.3.

Samsung has continually hammered the point that the Galaxy Note has been successful around the world, and has been unusually quick to tout sales numbers as it justifies the new category. Last month, it said it sold 5 million units of the Galaxy Note 2 in two months, or double the rate of the original.

The carriers like the device because it appeals to heavy users who tend to be affluent and willing to spend more on monthly smartphone plans. Samsung sees it as a complement to its flagship Galaxy S III, which has proven to be nearly as strong a draw as Apple's iPhone 5.

The Korea Times also reiterated its belief that the Galaxy S4 will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February. Samsung, however, held its own event last year to unveil the Galaxy S III, and many expect the company to follow the same track this year.

CNET has contacted Samsung for comment, and we'll update the story when the company responds.

The Note 2 will be my last Note device then, if that's the case. 5.5 is my limit.

i think they're probably gonna try to find a way to make the screen bigger without increasing the size of the device itself too much

nicca,I can't even go back to a 4.7 inch phone anymore. My Galaxy Nexus feels like a midget of a phone now. Crazy how you think a phone is big as hell when it's bigger than your old phone, then you get a bigger phone and the old one feels awkwardly small.

Been that way for me going from the G1 (3.5), to the EVO 4G (4.3) to the Epic 4G (4.0) to the EVO 3D (4.3) and Epic 4G Touch (4.5) to the Galaxy Nexus (4.65) and now all that !! feels !!in tiny compared to the Note 2, which I now feel is the right size for me (5.5). At some point it's going to have to stop lol. I think I will be fine between 5 and 5.5 inches for a long time.

If that's the case I'll definitely make it through my contract with this phone. I can't go lower. The SIII feels small, but this is as far as I'm gonna go.
