Samsung Galaxy S4
The S5 looks set to add a QHD display

With the Samsung Galaxy S5 release date now mooted to be just a matter of weeks away, latest reports have suggested the phone’s 5.25-inch QHD screen has already entered production.

A step up in both size and quality over the 5-inch Full HD display on the Samsung Galaxy S4, the reported Samsung Galaxy S5 panel is said by Korean media to have entered production as the manufacturer readies itself for a Q1 flagship phone unveiling.

While the S4 boasted a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, now the standard for high-end flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will reportedly host a QHD panel with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, This screen is said to offer a 560 pixels-per-inch image density, a move that would make it a leader of the smartphone scene.

Contrary to recent reports that the Samsung Galaxy S5 would see the Korean manufacturer move to cheaper LCD panels, the 5.25-inch QHD offering is said to be an AMOLED offering.

What’s more, claims that the Samsung Galaxy S5’s 5.25-inch QHD panel has entered production reaffirms reports earlier this weeks that the S5 will not play host to a curved display like the recent Samsung Galaxy Round offering.

One of many Samsung Galaxy S5 rumours to do the rounds in recent weeks, the S5’s specs sheet will reportedly pair the high-end display with a new 64-bit processor, 3GB of RAM and a 16-megapixel rear-mounted camera.

Elsewhere, the S5 has been tipped to run Google’s latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS alongside an all new metal form factor that will see the handset better compete with the market leading iPhone 5S.

Probably be nice to view this new screen, but a bit of a pointless exercise with Qualcomm's 805 processor out in under 6 months which will be 4k capable 'on screen', for video recording and 4k TV connectivity plus replay.
Will an increase in pixel density over current flagship phones offer any real improvement in viewing pleasure? I like the idea of 64 bit processing and 3GB of ram.
All said and done, this device should make converts of many an Apple devotee.

I'm cool with my 4.7 smartphone but if you slim down the bezel, ala LG G2 5.2 it IS the way to go.
Remember 7" tablets are dying out or being regulated to the budget market. Even Samsung are selling their Galaxy Tab 7 for £89 in some places ahead of next years new range. 8.3, 8.9, 10.1 and 13.3 size tablets are the way ahead. Steve "evil" Jobs was right after all.
