The fact that a smartphone with a QHD 2560 x 1440 pixels display will be released at some point in the future is more or less confirmed. The only question remaining is when. According to the latest report coming from ZDNet Korea, it might happen as soon as February 2014, which is when next year’s Mobile World Congress will take place. It looks like that the first company to use a 2K HD display in its smartphone may be Samsung. Word on the street has that the lucky winner may be the upcoming Galaxy S5.
Samsung Galaxy S5 – Rumors and speculations
It is not the first time that we hear about a Samsung smartphone possibly packing a display with 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution. Rumor has it that a screen with this eye-popping number of pixels could make an appearance on the Galaxy S5 or possibly Note 4. To be honest, any other Samsung phone would not make much sense in this case. A 2K HD display would move the pixel density barrier well above 500 ppi and make a new goal to meet for other manufacturers.
Previous rumors about the Galaxy S5 included, except for the amazing screen, a 2.5 GHz processor and Android 4.4 KitKat. The phone could also feature iris recognition technology, much like the one speculated for the iPhone 6. A huge step has been taken by implementing fingerprint scanners in smartphones; however, it looks like Samsung is getting ready to take security to a whole new level.
