Galaxy Note 3 Has 6.3-Inch Display? Galaxy S4 Game Pad Supports Mystery Device
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is likely to move from a 5.5-inch screen to a 6.3-inch display, it seems. In case you're wondering where this information comes from, look no further than Samsung, which lists the screen size support on its Game Pad that was announced as an accessory for the Galaxy S4.
Samsung posted the information under the accessories page of the Galaxy S4 for its Game Pad accessory. The Game Pad works by pairing the device via Bluetooth via NFC Tectile. It will allow full control of gameplay by using optimized buttons; the Game Pad has a Dual Analog Stick, Shoulder Keys, and 4 Action Buttons. It also has a remote control function that enables a home gaming experience via built-in wireless support that directs what's on your smartphone's screen to your television.
The juiciest part of Samsung's listing points out that the Game Pad will support 4-inch to 6.3-inch screen sizes. Samsung currently has many smartphones with displays from 4-inches up to the Galaxy Note 2's 5.5-inch display. Samsung does not currently have any devices that feature a 6.3-inch display.
In January The Korea Times published an article that claimed Samsung is expected to use a 6.3-inch display in the Galaxy Note 3 that is expected to debut later this year. Samsung seems to have let the cat out of the bag about an upcoming device with a 6.3-inch display, in listing its Game Pad as supporting up to 6.3-inch screen sizes. That device will most likely be the Galaxy Note 3.
It appears that as each Galaxy Note screen size increases, the phablet sells more than its predecessor. The original Galaxy Note featured a 5.3-inch display that introduced the world to a new smartphone category, the phablet. The original Galaxy Note has sold 10 million units since its introduction in October 2011.
Samsung followed up on the success of the original Galaxy Note with the Galaxy Note 2, which featured an even larger 5.5-inch screen. Samsung has currently sold over 10 million units of the Galaxy Note 2 since its introduction in September 2012. Sales of the Galaxy Note 3 are expected to exceed that of the Galaxy Note 2 and we can expect it to have an even larger 6.3-inch display, if we are to read into Samsung's Game Pad information. Is a 6.3-inch phablet too big? Let us know in the comments.
