Samsung Galaxy S5 Display Could Feature Big Upgrade



Not only have our smartphones and tablets continued to get bigger and bigger, at least on Android, but the resolution has too, and now we’re hearing Samsung is aiming to take things up a notch.

With 1080p HD resolutions, “retina” displays and more the next logical step is to take things even further. This week SamMobile is reporting that Samsung is prepped and ready to start shipping insanely crisp 2560 x 1440 resolution smartphones early next year, possibly arriving in the upcoming Galaxy S5. It isn’t 4k yet, but surely that’s coming next.


The Samsung Galaxy S4 sports a 5-inch 1080p display offering 441 pixels per inch, which delivers a stunning visual experience and crisp text for all aspects of the phone. However, in 2014 Samsung looks to take that number even higher by getting into 550 pixels per inch and more. The term “retina display” may come to mind, but at this point the eye can barely tell the difference.

During the Samsung Analyst day earlier this month the company was reportedly talking about its next-gen displays, aside from the curved flexible screens we’ve been seeing as of late, and these super HD panels could reportedly arrive in multiple upcoming smartphones throughout 2014. Sources state Samsung’s Galaxy S5 may be first, but given they’ll need millions and millions for the popular handset, these high-res phones might not make a debut until the Galaxy Note 4.

Another important factor here is Samsung bringing its AMOLED displays to tablets, which we haven’t seen except on a few very limited products. Offering full HD Super AMOLED displays on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 could also be in the cards. We don’t know Samsung’s exact plans yet, but surely more details will be coming soon as we approach 2014.

For those excited to see what’s next from Samsung Display, we’ll likely get a up close hands-on look at new tablets, smartphones, and screen technology at CES this January in Las Vegas. Expect some extra high resolution smartphones to take the Android market by storm early next year.

    What about the Galaxy F Premium flagship that is supposed to unseat the S and Note as the third and true flagship class of Samsung’s Android dominance? The wraparound display and premium materials to 2k displays, has it ever occurred to you lot writing these articles that maybe two out of three of these features are meant for the third premium line up of Samsung, the F Series? If you think the S and Note are meant to carry on being the top end devices for Samsung, you are sadly mistaken, especially if you think the Note is supposed to carry what the S can’t, the F series is pretty much guaranteed to take the crown and unseat the S as the true premium line up from the current S series. They are using the third line up to fight off the competition from Apple/Sony/LG and HTC who bring in flagships at different times of the year.

    NO. Just NO. This is bad for so many reasons. I seriously hope this does not become an industry standard.

    Plain and simple nothing beats Samsung or the Galaxy Note products period. Samsung cares mist about their Galaxy Note product line truly so you can expect top notch specs on the Note 4 come October 2014 just like the current Note 3 today.

    The Galaxy S5 will lead the way starting off 2014 will great specs and vast improvements over the current Galaxy S4. Then in June the first Galaxy F handset will arrive to the market better than the Galaxy S5. Then the Galaxy Note 4 will close out the 2014 year.

    I don’t see NOBODY EVER STOPPING SAMSUNG NO TIME Soon. They will enter 2014 with over 63% market share of the entire android platform. By the time October 2014 rolls around they will be sitting near 80%market share of the entire android platform.

    People better wake up and recognize who’s the ONLY BOSS of android.

    Holy fanboism. You do realize that even if your fantasy were to come true that competition is good for the consumer?
    and the LG G2 is a faster phone and has a larger battery? so I’m not sure what standards you are using.

    Samsung have and I’m sure will continue to make superb new products. Whether existing and potential new customers will continue to buy them after the appalling 4.3 upgrade to GS3 and GS4 phones, remains to be seen. I for one am seriously disappointed with Samsungs apparent disdain and arrogance towards their loyal customer base. They have said NOTHING despite users of their expensive flagship phone finding it increasingly unusable after an irreversible upgrade.

    I’m a big fan of Samsung devices and this tablet is a huge disappointment. The short story is that it falls short on almost every relevant front. If interested I blogged about it here:
