Samsung, rumour has it, is working on a 5.9 inch 4K Ultra HD Super AMOLED panel. What possible use could someone like Samsung have for a 5.9 inch 4K display? Well the current suggestion being thrown about is that it could be for the new Galaxy Note.
We have Phone Arena to thank for the rumours, they claim that they were tipped that the display, which will have a 3840 x 2160 resolution and a pixel density of 746ppi, will start mass production in August.
So with the display slated to be revealed in August next year, those of you familiar with Samsung release schedules will know that that fits perfectly with the time scale of the company’s Note series of phablets. It could also appear on the Samsung Galaxy S6 but this series of phones is normally released in the spring, so it is unlikely.

We began to see Quad HD devices in 2014 starting with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 something that the Phone Arena also predicted now they are suggesting we will have UHD handsets in 2015.
It would be safe to say with production of the display set for August and the release of the Galaxy Note normally in August, (we will know for sure after the IFA in Berlin next year), it would be a safe bet to suggest the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will have a 5.9-inch screen and 4K resolution. Now we just need to work on getting some more 4K content in the world, hopefully it will have 4K video capability too.
