We have received a rumor recently that Samsung is planning, based on its new Exynos 8890 processor, a version of the Galaxy S7 that would have a 4K screen. It’s not clear if this would be sold in South Korea only or to the international markets as well. As we have previously mentioned we think dynamic range, battery life, glare reduction and brightness are more worthy pursuits than 4K for phones.
Now if only Apple TV would support 4K…
Sony’s new Xperia Z5 Premium features a 4K 5.5′ display which works out to 806PPI (which is double of the iPhone 6 Plus’s 401PPI). It also features a Snapdragon 810 processor, 32 GB of storage, 3 GB of ram and a nicely sized 3430 mAH battery.
The relevant questions are is this much resolution noticeable and of benefit on such a small screen and how much will it effect battery life? These questions will remain hotly debated until it gets into enough reviewer’s hands.
