Samsung is ramping up production on the 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display that is rumored to be the centerpiece of the upcoming Galaxy S4. The display, which will be Samsung’s first Full HD AMOLED, has been in the news since late last year, making a brief appearance at CES. Now reports say it will reach mass production status by the end of this month.
Word from the front lines back in November claimed that hangups in the manufacturing process had forced a delay in producing the screen en masse. With displays reaching Samsung’s smartphone assembly lines in early March, the company will cutting it close to the GS4’s rumored early April availability.
The display in question will sport a pixel density of about 440ppi. In the future, Samsung is exploring options to create comparable pixel densities or higher in a smaller overall size.
