At annual Analyst Day, Samsung announced that the world will see first Ultra High Definition 4K smartphones as early as the year 2015. In the next year, the company will be making handsets with 2560 x 1440 WQHD panels. Since Galaxy S5 is going to be one of premium devices of company for year 2014, so it’s most likely that this esteemed much rumored device will feature 2560 x 1440 WQHD panel.
Samsung is looking forward to make Galaxy S5 the best smartphone of all time, and is working hard to achieve the same. The company is known to deliver something unique in its premium Galaxy smartphones. So it would be nothing surprising if the Galaxy S5 comes with 2560 x 1440 WQHD panel. This incredible screen resolution will surely help the device to catch attention of customers.
Although Samsung has hinted this incredible screen panel itself, but not to forget that the company has not mentioned the name of Galaxy S5 anywhere. So we just can’t be sure if this screen panel will be part of Galaxy S5 or not. So use a pinch of salt to make this news digestible.
Screen size of Galaxy S5?
From this news follows a new point of discussion- what could be screen size of Galaxy S5? Well, like all other factors of the Galaxy S5, this one is also blessed/confused with many rumors. Earlier there were rumors that the next premium Galaxy device will feature 5-inch screen just like its predecessor. By the time of these rumors, the screen resolution was rumored to be 1080p, which was again same what Galaxy S4 packs.
After the rumors about 5-inch screen in Galaxy S5, there were rumors that Samsung would prefer to increase the size of screen to 6-inch or more. But as expected, these rumors did not long last and were soon replaced by the rumors about 5.3-inch screen. 6-inch screen size is something that does not make sense. Samsung already has Note 3 in the market with 5.7 inch screen size. And then there is Galaxy Mega devices with 5.8 and 6.3 inch screen sizes. Samsung won’t like to make Galaxy S5 a phablet. They want it to compete with flagship smartphones of other companies such as iPhone 5S, Xperia Z1, LG G2 etc.
So, 5.3 inch screen size in Galaxy S5 does make sense. Many experts also claim the same screen size. As per them, 5-inch display will not offer great viewing angles, when incorporated with rumored 2560 x 1440 WQHD panel.
Just like the display resolution part, the screen size part is not confirmed yet. In fact, nothing about the smartphone is confirmed yet. All are just rumors. Summing up, would you like to see Galaxy S5 with 5.3-inch screen size and 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution?
