Rumor: Samsung Prepping 5.3-inch Galaxy 'Q'

The annual Consumer Electronics Unlimited (IFA) might still be six weeks away, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start the week off with a new rumor.  According to Yahoo! Korea (translated), the handset maker is putting the finishing touches on a 5.3-inch Galaxy Q handset, which they hope to unveil in Berlin.  The device is said to be a stepping stone from other Galaxy handsets and the Galaxy Tab and should feature a Super AMOLED Plus display.

We’re not sure how well a smart phone with a 5.3-inch screen might do, but we can’t imagine Samsung’s luck being any worse than Dell.  The PC giant has had a tough time trying to break into the Android game with their (5-inch and 7-inch) Streak series.  Samsung, on the other hand, is already offering phones with displays at 4.3-inch and 4.5-inch sizes.  What’s another inch, give or take?

IFA runs September 2-7 and takes place in Berlin, Germany.
