Samsung is reportedly planning to introduce a 5.9-inch phablet featuring OLED AMOLED display later half of this year. As per The Korean Times, this speculated phablet will be powered by Samsung’s own Exynos octa-core chipset, which will also be seen powering Galaxy S4, to meet consumer demand for faster data processing and downloading speeds. There are also speculations that it might be Samsung’s next generation Galaxy Note 3, although there is no official confirmation about it.
Looks like, Samsung is now started paying more attention to devices with larger display in order to compete with rivals like ZTE and Huawei, which has already introduced larger screen phablets with similar sizes. Where, in recently concluded CES 2013, Huawei showcased 6.1-inch Ascend Mate, ZTE showcased 5.7-inch Grand Memo phablet at MWC exhibition. Although these large sized phablets look bulky and feel ridiculous to held and carry, they are in huge demand these days because of better browsing and viewing experiences.
