Samsung begins mass producing 5.25-inch QHD AMOLED displays for Galaxy S5

According to a report from DDaily, Samsung has begun mass producing 5.25-inch AMOLED displays for the Galaxy S5, reaffirming a previous report that claimed mass production would begin near the end of December. The new display has a diamond pixel arrangement like the S4 and Note 3′s display – green pixels interleaved with alternating red and blue pixels, but with each red and blue pixel shaped like a diamond for increased sharpness and pixel density. The resolution of the screen is 2,560×1,440, equating to a pixel density of 560 ppi, and rumors suggest an LCD variant of the S5 might exist as well.

The Galaxy S5 is expected to sport a QHD (2,560×1,440) 2K display, a Snapdragon 800/805 processor/64-bit Exynos processor, 3GB of RAM, 16-megapixel camera, and Android 4.4 KitKat. It is also expected to be the first Samsung flagship to have a metal construction, at least on one of its variants.

Just plain stupidity. While we want a good battery that lasts more than 1-1.5 days they create even bigger displays with useless high resolutions which consumes battery even more. While we want optimized OS and TouchWiz they just add more RAM and clock speed (which gives nothing, because IT IS NOT OPTIMISED, iOS and WP with dual core 1,2Ghz, 1GB RAM works much faster than Sammy with 8cores at 2Ghz and 3Gb RAM). While I still like Samsung phones I find their strategy for last 2 years just plain pathetic. Sadly it is much easier to sell “X Cores and X RAM” to people who doesn’t know a first thing how phones work than “premium construction” or “optimized OS”.

sharpness of resolution will certainly have their applications in medicine and military (not preferred by some but this is life), engineering, art, biological studies etc. I think it is good that we advance. Lots of innovations and inventions in past have benefited and supported lots of technologies in the present and we have use some of it to better our life

if that is the case then we might as well go back to analog resolution. We are approaching science fiction type apparent computing with see through glass mobile devices. If some of us are against tech. advancement then they should not even buy a digital devices and go back to dial pad phone, eh. It is rediculous having comment mentioning about the clarity of screen resolution. How many prefer HD tv to an analog tv now a days? Hello, anybody home?
