Korea Times: Samsung readying 5.9-inch device for second half 2013


Samsung is only a few days from unveiling its flagship Android smartphone, the Galaxy S4; however, there’s something bigger coming down the road. According to Korea Times, Samsung will release a 5.9-inch device in the second half of the year. Presumably this will be a successor to the Galaxy Note II, though it’s unclear at this point.

”Samsung is working on introducing a new phablet using a 5.9-inch organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen,’’ an official told The Korea Times on condition of anonymity.

The second half of 2013 matches up with the one year anniversary of the Galaxy Note II so we’re inclined to believe it’s a third-generation take. On the other hand, we’ve also heard that Samsung will go even bigger for the Note III, with a 6.3-inch screen.
