Forget the Galaxy S5, a QHD Samsung phone has leaked

With the Samsung Galaxy S5 release date just days away, a new Samsung handset with a QHD display has leaked online.

Although the Samsung Galaxy S5 had been repeatedly tipped to land with a 2K display, the next-gen panel failed to materialise, with the unconfirmed Samsung SM-G906S now appearing courtesy of a GFXBench listing with a QHD screen in tow.

While further details on the phone are still shrouded in mystery, the benchmark test has suggested that the Samsung SM-G906S – which will presumably land under some form of Samsung Galaxy branding – will run a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution display.

Despite the phone’s resolution being leaked, the handset’s screen size is still unclear. There is also no work on an expected Samsung SM-G906S release date.

With a 2K display hosting Windows Phone handset having made a premature appearance yesterday, April 2, the latest Samsung leak offers yet another indication that smartphone displays are set for an imminent overhaul.

As the first wave of 2014 flagship smartphones start to hit retailers, with the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 all boasting 1080p Full HD displays, it is not expected that the first 2K or QHD handsets will be unveiled until the second half of the year.
