Report: Samsung to Launch 2560x1440 Smartphone in 2014

Samsung's rumored to have five devices lined up for launch in early 2014, and it looks like one of those devices could be the first smartphone to pack a 2560 x 1440 display. Today, according to ZDNet Korea, there is a report that talks about Samsung's plans for its smartphone business in 2014. These plans apparently span three major technologies: QHD displays, Samsung's Iris verification system, and the company's Tizen OS.

While Iris and Tizen are interesting, the QHD display is what interests us the most. ZDNet writes that Samsung is currently figuring out how to mass produce the QHD displays with a resolution of 2560 x 1440.

Of course, this kind of feature seems like something Samsung would save for its flagship Galaxy S device. With rumors that the Galaxy S5 will be announced early in 2014, we're crossing our fingers that this display will be on the spec sheet when it rolls into our inbox.

Other rumored specs for the Galaxy S5 include a 64-bit chip and a 16-megapixel camera.

  • My friend has a Nokia 1520 with a 1080p display that lasts almost all day, I think they'll be ok at that res. However, I think they're more likely to put that on the Note 4 than the S series
