Samsung to start mass production of the 5" 1080p display this month
We know that Samsung is working on a 5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display for Q1 of this year – it was on a roadmap on its booth.

The display units will reach Samsung Electronics in early March – just in time for an April launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III successor. Or maybe they'll manage to produce enough units for a late March release.
The screen will have 440ppi pixel density and according to DDaily will be manufactured using Samsung’s FMM (Fine Metal Mask) method, which points to a PenTile display. Even if that is the case though, we doubt it would matter much at that pixel density.
DAMN YOU pentile mATRIX!! Never buying another one again
