Samsung to unveil Phablet with 5.9-inch organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen

Continuing with its success story and ingenuity to produce robust and quality smartphones and related gadgets, Samsung electronics has said Wednesday it plans to introduce a 5.9-inch handset in the latter half of the year to solidify its leading position in the rapidly-growing “phablet” market.

''Samsung is working on introducing a new phablet using a 5.9-inch organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen,’’ an official told The Korea Times on condition of anonymity.

Phablet is a term created by combining parts of phone and tablet.

The move comes as the Korean electronics giant’s seeks to further strengthen its foothold in the phablet market where Chinese rivals such as ZTE and Huawei have unveiled products in similar sizes.

Samsung has already secured a solid position in the phablet market with the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II but there has been a new market created as Chinese players have introduced 5.8-inch to 6-inch devises. The firm has sold more than 10 million Galaxy Note IIs since they were unveiled last September.
