Report: Samsung’s first QHD (2560×1440) phone, aka Galaxy S5, to be announced at MWC


Last updated: December 23rd, 2013 at 12:14 UTC+02:00

The Korean media is at it again, revealing some of Samsung’s plans for the coming year. According to ZDNet Korea, Samsung will be announcing its first smartphone with a QHD (2,560×1,440) display at Mobile World Congress (MWC) between February 24 – 27 – although not mentioned by name, this phone is all but certain to be the Galaxy S5, as it would be silly for Samsung to unveil its next major upgrade in display tech on anything but a flagship device, and also because mass production of these QHD displays is already underway.

An MWC announcement falls right in line with the rumored April launch of the Galaxy S5, possibly in both premium and “super-premium” variants, though since Samsung likes having its own dedicated events for flagship announcements, an MWC unveil might not come to be. The same report mentions that Samsung will also unveil a device in 2014 that comes with its rumored (and patented) eye (iris) scanning technology, though whether it makes the cut as a Galaxy S5 feature is something that remains to be seen.

We’ll be live at MWC 2014, so rest assured that you’ll be hearing all about the Galaxy S5 and other announcements made by Samsung at the yearly mobile event.
