I think it is a 1280 x 720 display.
Reason why the app shown in the image shows 1184?
I don't know for sure but it looks like it is measuring the screen WITHOUT the pixels used to display the 3 buttons at the bottom which would make it a height of 96pixels.
Take a look at the "black" displayed in the background. The app background is "greyer" than the buttons background, I think it could be a hint.
Sounds reasonable? What do you think?
I wish this leaked photo isnt true. I would be disappointed if it is. 1184x720 sounds strange, it's not a real HD actually. you can have a resolution of 800x720, right it's a 720p res but not HD. perhaps I'll just wait for the next generation of Galaxy S.
kdotlo, 04 Oct 2011Could it be that 96 pixels are reserved for the on-screen buttons? 1184+96=1280 Yes that's a good point. good job!!
I wonder nobody commented on the x/ydpi numbers. If I do the calculations, it should have dimensions of 3.54x1.97 inch (thats exactly 9x5 cm), that makes a 4.05 inch diagonal.

Yes all this goodness in a case made of cheap crap plastic
for a cheap price of over £500 brought to you with love from
Samsung the makers of the cheap looking everything.

This is NOT pure 720p screen. It's 1184x720. A HD scree... moreThe app is most likely measuring active app area or something.
In reality NOBODY manufactures 1184pixel-tall screens. It's either 960 or 1024 or 1280 or. The height should be a multiple of 32 afaik. the width follows a slightly different rule, however.

Yes this will be my next phone. Nexus Nexus Nexus.
16.9 aspect ratio perfect for watching movie.
The calculation probably doesn't take the soft keys bar into account, which makes all DPI calculation correct. 1/12 space of a screen for the bar sounds perfectly legit to me. We'll find out more next week for sure! (Unless Anonymous leaks more)
It just cant be 4.3 inch
Because dpi of 320 on 1280*720 need atleast 4.6 inch screen
I am damn! sure about this
Just Check here
This is not possible.

This is NOT pure 720p screen. It's 1184x720. A HD screen would be 1280x720.
This 1184x720 gives a PPI of 322.
[(720^2 + 1184^2)^1/2]/4.3 = 322 (approx)
Why 4.3"!? What happend to the 4.65"!?
In my opinion the smaller screen is really a bummer..
