A Korean publication, DDaily, has reported that Samsung Mobile Display, one of the numerous entities that make up Samsung as a Chaebol, has started to produce the screen for the Samsung Galaxy SII; the display is said to be a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with a 1,280 by 720 pixel resolution.
The display is likely to be the first non-PenTile display - hence the "Plus" moniker - from Samsung Mobile Display for the smartphone market. Both the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE use Super AMOLED HD Ready PenTile displays.
At 316ppi, the phone's pixel density would not be far from the 326ppi of the iPhone 4s. And if DDaily's reports are indeed true, it would make BGR's previous "exclusive" piece about a 4.8-inch full HD display obsolete.
In any case, a 4.8-inch display with a 1,920 by 1,080 pixels resolution would have pushed the smartphone into tablet territory. Indeed, it would have been an oddity given that Samsung doesn't even have a tablet with a full HD resolution, let alone one with a quad core processor as rumoured on the Samsung Galaxy S3.
The S3 is going to face the challenge of the HTC One X which is available from as little as £26 per month although Samsung appears to have a winner on its hands with one rumour saying that 10 million units have been preordered already.
