We typically caution against getting overly excited about rumors so it’s only fair to advise against getting too down about them as well. The Samsung 4.99-inch full HD AMOLED screens that seemed like a sure thing just a few days ago don’t feel quite so certain today. The latest round of Samsung super-screen rumors, courtesy of DigiTimes, suggest the company is having a hard go of producing 441 PPI (pixels per inch) screens for its handsets. They cite an industry insider as attributing the problem to “lacking high-end technology.” The unnamed source said Samsung had even sought help from 3M with LITI (Laser Induced Thermal Imaging) technology to no avail.
As most tech blog readers will tell you, you probably shouldn’t take a DigiTimes rumor to the bank but they have nailed a few early rumors in the past. And no, I’m not making a broken clock is right twice a day joke either… or am I?
