The majority of smartphone manufacturers are preparing for the big show, for the Mobile World Congress, where most of the future flagship devices will be unveiled. At this point, the fact that we’re expecting the SGS5 to be unveiled there as well shouldn’t come as a surprise. Plus, with the tons of leaks and rumors that have been hitting the blogosphere in full force during these past several months, we also have a pretty accurate idea on what to expect from Sammy’s next best thing. We might even see a bezel-free design for all we know.
Some of the latest reports have also suggested that the Galaxy S5 will not have an “Active” dust/waterproof version, simply because the standard model will come with such features. The most recent reports however, suggest that there will be at least two Galaxy S5 variants, but for a different reason. Check out the details below.
Samsung Galaxy S5 to Initially Come With a Full HD Display – QHD To Follow
You might’ve gotten used to this by now, but each year it seems that the smartphone market makes a new leap in terms of screen resolution. Last year, the high point has been 1080 x 1920. This year, we’re expecting QHD (2560 x 1440) to go mainstream. However, as far as the Galaxy S5 goes, it appears that the standard model that should go on sale in late March – early April will not make the jump to QHD.
Apparently, Samsung has started the mass production of Galaxy S5’s Full HD panels, but QHD displays are still in queue. According to the latest reports, the Korean giant will first release a Full HD model boasting an AMOLED panel with diamond pixel structure.
In any case, the QHD model – which measures 5.1 inches and uses the same pixel structure @ 576 pixels per inch – will supposedly go on sale a couple of months after the Full HD model. As for the reasons of this “delay” (if we can call it that), well, the source suggests that Samsung is experiencing some difficulties with optimizing the QHD picture quality.
This bit of information further confirms a story that has surfaced a couple of days ago, when a 1080p SGS5 has been listed by Dutch retailer “Typhone”.
That pretty much wraps it up, so feel free to share your thoughts below. Would you be willing to wait for the QHD model to hit the shelves? Or are you going to buy the standard Full HD SGS5 as soon as it goes on sale? How much do you care for ppi?
