    Right now, no one knows for sure. I personally hope it isn't much bigger than 5"

    I think they'll be a little North of 5". I also hope it's not much bigger than that, considering the Note line already covers that screen size niche of the market very well.

    It’s probably going to be 5.2, and it will not be the same size or bigger than the Note 3.

    If that diagram is correct it is larger than the LG G2 which has a 5.2" screen, at that size seems a little beefy in my opinion

    That's exactly what I was wondering. Does Samsung have the 5.5" or bigger screen size reserved for the Note line only?

    Good chance it'll be 5.3-5.5 with thinner bezel, but not much more than that. They'll want to keep a distinction between the two models.

    no way. At most it will be 5.2 but it will not add size to the phone. Like the Note series, they will increase screen without increasing the phone at all. Especially if they are getting rid of the home button.

    In that case the leaked dimensions must be incorrect as they show a phone larger than the LG G2 which would suggest larger than 5.2"

    Granted I think you are correct I do not see Samsung going much larger than the S4 considering they have the Note.

    I think the consistent rumor is 5.25, the .05 is really insignificant.

    I agree I was just basing on the rumored link showing dimensions, hoping they are wrong as they show a phone bigger than the G2 which has a 5.2" screen. So unless the bezels are quite large it just doesnt make sense

    For me, the size of the Note 3 is perfect. If the S5 comes with the same size screen, I might be jumping on it.. If not, I know I will go for the Note 4..These phones are upgrading while the previous ones are still top shelf.. That really put a bullet in the competition.

    I don't know that the S5 will have the same screen size as the Note 3. They need to differentiate the two lines, and I think this needs to be done at the screen size level in addition to the S-pen.

    If the plan is to someday unify the devices and have 1 as opposed to 2 flagship models then yes, it makes sense to bring the screen sizes over together.

    what if the S5 has the same screen size as the Note 2, but at DOUBLE the screen resolution? (then use the same screen for the upcoming Note 4)
