Samsung looking to launch multiple 5-to-6 inch devices

Samsung are looking to further build on the market desire for bigger, bolder and certainly larger screen smartphones in 2014, according to Samsung’s Executive Director, Hyunjoon Kim, who revealed during the company’s Result Report Conference Call that Samsung is planning on bringing more 5-to-6-inch smartphones to market in 2014.

Samsung already has a fairly saturated hold on this segment of the market, beginning with 5.0″ Galaxy S4 and moving into their stylus driven Note range of phones; they also carry extra large devices like the Galaxy Grand along with the 5.8″ and 6.3″ Galaxy Mega although these devices so far seemed to have failed to wow consumers, although the Galaxy Grand has according to the report been a small hit for the company.

Hyunjoon Kim did note during the conference call that the new smartphones would be differentiated through their displays, however whether it was just a gesture towards the screen sizes only or towards the possible fact that these devices will have different quality displays – AMOLED/LCD/LED – is something that will most likely be announced officially at a later stage.

Samsung is also said to be working on improving key features from their larger screened devices such as Multi-Window and the S Pen stylus functionality from the Note, both features are extremely handy on larger screen devices (such as the Galaxy Note series of phones and tablets) and are seen by Samsung as a differntiator in the highly competitive smartphone market.

Personally as a Galaxy Note 2 user, I like the larger screen when having to use navigation in my wheelchair or playing back movies. Samsung certainly hit upon Gold with the Galaxy Note series, when consumers were looking for larger screened phones but just how many devices at this size the market can support remains to be seen.

Do you think more devices in the 5-6″ screen size range are required?
