The report that Samsung is developing a full HD AMOLED screen comes to us from Korean site AsiaE through a report from SamMobile.

According to the Korean publication, Samsung is set to unveil a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display at the CES 2013.

This new smartphone display is reportedly a full HD AMOLED display that has, obviously, 1,920 x 1,080 pixels resolution.

If Samsung does indeed bring to market this new screen, it will be the first full HD AMOLED display in the world.

Both smartphones from LG and Lenovo which were mentioned above are expected to use full HD LCD screens.

The HTC Deluxe (also known as the Droid DNA and HTC J Butterfly) and the Oppo Find 5 – which is said to already be in mass production – are also both equipped with LCD screens.

This new full HD AMOLED display is said by AsiaE to be mass produced by Samsung in the first quarter of next year.

Furthermore, it is rumored to be headed for the Galaxy S IV. The timing seems about right as the Galaxy S and its successors have traditionally been launched during the second quarter of the year.

If Samsung is mass producing the 5-inch full HD AMOLED display during the first quarter, the only logical flagship device this is headed to is the Galaxy S IV.

The Galaxy Note is traditionally launched by Samsung during the third quarter with availability in the fourth quarter.

Furthermore, the Galaxy Note II features a 5.5-inch screen, even larger than the 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display of the original Galaxy Note.

It wouldn’t make much sense for Samsung to make the Galaxy Note III screen smaller than its predecessors although it would make sense that they keep the size of the screen but increase its resolution for it to become a full HD AMOLED display.
