Full HD Galaxy S4 Could Steal Apple’s Thunder for the Next iPhone

Samsung AMOLED release schedule CES 2013

Samsung could steal some of Apple’s thunder when it comes to devices with breathtaking displays if rumors of the Galaxy S4 launching in the next few months are accurate. How breathtaking? How about full HD (1080p) and 440 pixels per inch breathtaking.

Believe it or not, it’s Samsung’s own CES booth that given the most credence to these reports, as The Times of India where the AMOLED, full HD (fHD), ~5″ screen was shown as part of the evolution of Samsung mobile screens (and coming in Q1 2013):

This screen in a Galaxy S4 would certainly be the screen to beat, especially if Samsung can pull off better battery life with its new Exynos processor:

Reuters speculated the Galaxy S IV may come with “a breakthrough unbreakable screen” which can be folded while BGR heard from its sources the phone has a five-inch screen, along with a 2GHz quad-core Exynos processor with 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel rear camera.

The screen is likely full HD (1,920-by-1,080) and at 440 pixels per inch would be a big improvement in pixel density over both the Galaxy S III’s 306 ppi and the iPhone 5′s 326 ppi screen.

Of course if rumors of “pixel quadrupling” are true, who knows what Apple might have up its sleeve for the next iPhone screen.
