Samsung Galaxy S5 screen

The Samsung Galaxy S5 screen could boast a staggering 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, Samsung itself has hinted.

With the manufacturer today looking to the future at its annual Analyst Day, Samsung has suggested that it will introduce the world’s first Ultra High Definition 4K smartphones as early as 2015, with next year, the launch window for the Samsung Galaxy S5, set to see 2560 x 1440 WQHD panels added to its handsets.

Although the manufacturer has failed to mention the Samsung Galaxy S5 by name, speaking in its native Seoul, South Korea, Samsung spokespeople have discussed the company’s upcoming smartphone display trends.

As well as confirming its 2015 4K intentions, the Apple and HTC rival has revealed that for 2014, it will make a stopping off point a WQHD panels. As well as a strong 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 manufacturer has revealed that upcoming devices will boast display panels with a stunning 560 pixels-per-inch image density.

Already one of the hot topics on the tech scene despite being months from reality, a range of Samsung Galaxy S5 rumours have been doing the rounds in recent weeks.

Expected to run an all new, premium metal body, similar to that of the HTC One or iPhone 5S, it has been suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S5’s enhanced display will be packaged alongside advanced eye-tracking technologies.

Further Samsung Galaxy S5 rumours have seen Samsung executives reveal that the phone will likely be powered by an iPhone mimicking 64-bit processor.

Fielding questions on the subject recently, Samsung’s CEO of Mobile, Shin Jong-Kyun stated: “Yes, our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing functionality.”

WHY? just why? Read this for some sort of explanation as to why super hi resolutions are pretty pointless. http://carltonbale.com/does...

Chasing ever more indiscernible spatial resolutions gives new meaning to the expression "going beyond the point of no return".
But you've got to love their goofy graphic which implies that somehow we are going to notice the difference hitting us in the eye.

When will manufacturers learn that 1080p on a phone is more than sufficient. The cost of powering higher res screens isn't worth the tiny, tiny benefit. I do love how the graphic makes the 1080p screen look terrible, as if it's hard to make out what's on the screen.

Now, if they could direct their attention to computer monitors, 4k res on a 24" monitor shouldn't be a problem after 1080p on a 5" phone.

But it is almost as pointless. Yes, screen in bigger, but you also sit further away. So the angle to the eye is about the same as a a phone which is smaller but held closer.

Galaxys have pentile matrix displays so a much higher ppi is required for pixels not to be visible.

They know that 1080p is more than sufficient, but take advantage of the fact that most consumers do not.
