Samsung Galaxy Note III rumored to sport a 6.3-inch OLED display

If you went into a cave three years ago and just came out, you probably would be shocked at the size of some of the displays that smartphones have been sporting. I remember when the DROID X was released and everyone was saying it was huge. Now that same screen size is on the DROID RAZR M (M for micro). Then there was the original Samsung Galaxy Note, which boasted a 5.3-inch display. Of course the follow up, the Galaxy Note II, pushed the envelope a little more at 5.5-inches. What’s next? Is it 6-inch displays? Well it’s not too soon to be talking Galaxy Note III, and the latest rumor is that it will sport a whopping 6.3-inch OLED display. When it comes to 6-inch displays, the Note III won’t be alone as Huawei already confirmed a 6.1-inch offering.

A year and half ago, everyone said the sweet spot was 4-inches. After spending a month or so with the DROID DNA, I now think it’s 5-inches, but as long as people are going to buy them, I see no reason why the manufacturers should slow down. However, at some point doesn’t it have to stop? Are we heading towards the Nexus 7 being a phone?
