Back when the OG Samsung Galaxy Note launched at 5.3-inches, there were many users that felt their hands couldn’t palm a phone any bigger. As we all know, Samsung launched the followup Galaxy Note 2 at 5.5-inches, making the device slightly taller but thinner as well.
If you’ve been keeping an ear to the rumor mill, there’s been a lot of talk floating around that Samsung would further increase the device’s display for the upcoming Note 3 release to a whopping 5.9-inches (even 6.3-inches at one point), challenging not only what consumers consider a palmable “smartphone,” but the physical dimensions of their pockets.
Worry no more, folks. Our friend at @evleaks has it on good authority that, contrary to rumors, the device will come with a more reasonable — albeit still slightly larger — 5.7-inch display. This puts a Note sequel with the same overall size more within the realm of possibility. Samsung would then only having to focus on shrinking the bezels a tad, while possibly adding a few more pixels to its width.
Of course, we’ll have to wait and see how this all pans out, but for those extremely displeased with a substantially bigger device need not worry. Those disappointed by this news, well… there’s always the Samsung Galaxy Mega
