There were a multitude of Nexus S leaks today, but some of you may not have been totally thrilled with the looks and potential specs of the handset. Always looking to please, Samsung has a new flagship phone coming out in February, and several details have been leaked. Powered by Gingerbread, like the Nexus S, this new flagship Sammy phone has either a 4.3-inch or 4.5-inch WVGA "sAMOLED2" display, which is likely referring to a new version of the Super AMOLED screens found on the Galaxy S line. Other features include a 1.2GHz processor, 8 megapixel camera capable of 1080p video capture, 14.4Mbps HSPA, and 16GB of storage. The handset is described as "ultra sleek," although the side view of the handset on the slide doesn't actually appear to be the Samsung phone. Strangely, it's a side shot of a slim VoIP phone made a few years ago.
Most of the features of this new Samsung flagship phone could make just about anyone salivate, but there are a couple of complaints that some may have. First up, for a flagship phone with such impressive specs, it would be nice to see HSPA+ on board instead of just HSPA. Sure, 14.4Mbps is pretty speedy, but considering all of the other extremely high-end features, HSPA+ would be a nice addition. My other complaint isn't really so much of a complaint as it is a concern: the possibility of a 4.5-inch screen. Don't get me wrong, a gigantic screen like that sounds amazing, especially if it's made with a new iteration of Samsung's Super AMOLED tech. 4.5 inches just seems like it might be a bit much, though, and could end up turning off a lot of customers. A lot of people that have used a device like the DROID X have said that they have a hard time accessing the notification bar without readjusting their grip on the phone, and a 4.5-inch display could make things even more difficult, especially for those with smaller hands. We'll just have to wait for this new phone to materialize to find out for sure. Until then, what do you all think of such a large display? Have we reached the point where phone screens are too big, or do you believe that bigger is indeed better?
