Samsung has confirmed it is working on 2K QHD AMOLED display technology that could most likely appear in the Samsung Galaxy S5.
According to the Korean media, Samsung has confirmed 2K display production during its Semiconductor and Display Technology Roadmap Seminar.
It’s already pretty certain that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature a 2K 2560 x 1440p QHD resolution display, but some official confirmation from Samsung itself is always well appreciated.
Before other flagship offerings like the HTC M8 arrive, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be one of the most pixel-dense smartphones commercially available.
The seminar also confirmed that Samsung has some 4K UHD smartphone displays in the works that will offer a resolution of 3480 x 2160p.
This would make for a smartphone display with a pixel density of over 700ppi, making it particularly suitable for large-screen smartphones.
Samsung didn’t offer a timeframe for when we’d be able to see 4K smartphone brought to market, but we doubt it’ll be any time soon.
Samsung Galaxy S5 Rumours
The Samsung Galaxy S5 will be unveiled at an event post-MWC 2014, alongside the next-generation Samsung Galaxy Gear, with a March or April release date.
Along with a 2K 5.25-inch display, the S5 is tipped to feature a fingerprint sensor embedded into the screen itself, rather than within a button like the iPhone 5S and the TouchID home button.
The 2014 Samsung flagship is also rumoured to feature a brand new Touchwiz UI and stick with the plastic body used for the Samsung Galaxy S4.
It may well expand upon the head tracking features in the S4 too, with new rumours suggesting it will include advanced head tracking features that could see you controlling your smartphone with movements of your head.
Reports suggest the S5 will run on a speedy quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and feature Android 4.4 KitKat.
