Ever since HTC’s “superphone” debuted with a 1080p display, rumors have been swirling about that Samsung’s next Galaxy S entrant would feature a similar screen. The above photo would lend some credibility to such rumors. Found in Samsung’s CES booth, the roadmap communicates the goals that Samsung has hoped to reach in terms of pixels-per-inch. Currently, the Galaxy S III ships with a 4.8″ 720p display. Rumor has it that the next-generation device, to be launched sometime this spring, will feature a 5″ 1080p display, easily besting the PPI of its predecessor while still increasing the screen size.
It is, of course, important to remember that this is Samsung’s display business, and not actually Samsung Mobile. However, the two have previously collaborated very closely, and the Q1 2013 launch date would put it firmly in line to be a headline feature of the upcoming S IV.
