    I would assume, but it would be cool for it to grab a qHD SAMOLED+ on this bad boy

    I found it interesting that they talk of the screen size but nothing about the resolution.

    I guess we'll know in a few...

    I'm sure it will be 480x800, just like the Infuse.

    480x800 as stated here on Sprint's spec sheet.

    Have you ever held an Infuse.
    Its screen looks brilliant.

    If you like looking at a pixelated screen, this is the phone for you!

    You obviously haven't read any of the reviews. Most reviewers say the screen is gorgeous and if you check out an Infuse you'll see how good it is.

    4.5" at 480x800 is about 207 Pixels per inch

    For comparison (PPI):
    iPhone 3GS: 163
    iPhone 4: 326
    Palm Pre: 186
    Galaxy S: 233
    Motorola Photon: 275
    HTC EVO:216
    HTC EVO 3D: 256

    Numbers either pulled from the phones wikipedia article or calculated using this.

    PPI is about taking the jagged edges out of lines that are not going straight horizontal or vertical. Most reviewers for most phones ignore jaggies and comment on colors. Going by the raw numbers the S2 is a step back in terms of PPI (the trolls point). Retina displays are between 300 and 500 PPI depending mostly on what source you read. The S2 being a super... screen probably means the color range should be unmatched.

    I'm ok with the 200ish PPI. I never noticed them on my Palm Pre in games or pictures. I do notice the nicer colors of my Nexus S but for some reason find it easier to see the pixels and jaggies. Maybe I just haven't scuffed the Nexus S screen enough to get a smoothing anti-aliasing effect. :-p

    Really? My wife just got a Galaxy S 4G and I'm jealous of her screen. The thing is beautiful. It blows my Evo away. And for a single core phone it moves. If this didn't get my attention that would be my alternative. This Evo has GOT to go.

    Until we get it in our hands, we won't know. Specs tell us quite a bit, but until you have it in your hands there's no way you'll be able to determine if the "Short comings" told by the specs will even mean anything to you. Spec wise the Photon is a beast, but that screen drove me NUTS. That's just me, though. Your mileage may vary.

    The Galaxy S has a SAMOLED screen with the PenTile sub-pixel matrix. The SII has a SAMOLED PLUS screen which uses a RGB Stripe matrix, resulting in more sub-pixels.

    Look guys. This arguement is silly. Higher resolution doesn't always translate into a better viewing experience. Just as SAMOLED PLUS screens are not the second coming of Christ. There are trade-offs with every screen, and in the end, all that matters is how the screen looks to YOU the owner, which is very subjective.

    Well said. I still don't see why people make such a big deal about this. It's not like you're going to be 2 inches away from the screen and the only way you are going to be able to see the pixels is if you try to.

    So the og EVO has more ppi, what a step back! It will be real noticeable on such a big screen, I would think!

    I hate to say it, but you sound like an anti-android commenter on an Engadget article. We get it, you've got problems with this phone. What's your end game, to halt sales of the GSII? Why don't you head over to your appropriate subforum and stop trying to ruin everyone's time here?

    And that's fine, but the problem with how you're going about it is that it makes you look like a jerk. It's negativity that we don't really need. Calling people "phans that are blinded by the benchmarks" isn't helping anybody.

    There's being objective and then there's just downright hatin'. You've been everywhere there's been negativity about this phone. Do you dislike it THAT much? How about we wait until it comes out and the guys actually review it before we decide how bad it is?

    I still prefer my nexus s 4gs screen over my evo 3ds. Reguardless of the resolution boost on the evo 3d, I still enjoy the deep blacks, and colors. Now with the Super amoled plus screen, I enjoy it much better than my evo, and the nexus s. I compared it with the infuse a while back.. The super amoled plus screens are the best imo.

    I'm actually considering returning my Photon for this monster. I like the Photon but as a photographer / graphic designer seeing the grid on the pentile screen drives me batty.

    Engadget called the Infuse's screen "gorgeous" and "stunning" and said:

    Another smartphone from Samsung, another gorgeous Super AMOLED Plus display. This one steps things up a couple tenths of an inch to 4.5, but maintains the 800 x 480 resolution of its predecessors. This means pixel density is down ever so slightly, but what stands out here is the amazing brightness and contrast of this display. It looks as good as the company's other offerings, with deep blacks, searing whites, and infinite viewing angles.

    Again the colors are a bit off when the brightness is lowered, and unfortunately Samsung didn't include the color tweaking tool that's found on the Galaxy S II. But, as with the Charge, we found if we kept the brightness up the colors were accurate, the whites bright, and the blacks still inky. That contrast is certainly the beauty of gooey organic LED displays, though there is another important advantage: power consumption.

    How come the majority of your posts end with an exclamation point?

    Anyway if you don't like this phone that's cool, but don't hang out here and insult it. It's a buzz killer for those who are excited about it.

    Keep in mind that the original Galaxy s had a PENTILE scree....whole different animal relative to pixels.
