Samsung confirms its working on QHD AMOLED smartphones, 4K phone displays

Samsung has confirmed, at the Semiconductor and Display Technology Roadmap Seminar, that it is working on a smartphone with a QHD (2560 x 1440) AMOLED display, according to the Korean media. It’s not a confirmation we needed since it’s fairly certain at least one of the Galaxy S5 models will sport a QHD (2K) display, but for those that were still skeptical, this should be enough of an indication that the Galaxy S5 will feature one of the most pixel-dense screens out there upon launch.

Samsung apparently also confirmed that it plans on launching smartphones with UHD (4K) displays with a resolution of 3480 x 2160 in the future, which would result in a pixel density of more than 700 ppi, making it suitable for phablets. No time frame was offered, but it’s likely we won’t see these UHD displays make it to phones any time soon. Samsung basically said that UHD displays will come to smartphones somewhere down the line, so it probably won’t be before 2015 that UHD phone displays become the next big thing.

After Super AMOLED comes Ultra AMOLED display!


it’s actually qHD, HD, Full HD, 2k, QHD, UHD and 4k.
qHD is Quarter HD (960 x 540), whereas QHD (or Quad-HD) is 4 times HD, so double 1280 x double 720… 2560×1440.
2K (referring to the horizontal resolution instead of the vertical one like 1080p) has a resolution of 2048×1080 and is therefor not the same as QHD.
UHD is 4 times full HD, making it natively 3840×2160, for TV’s and phones this is called 4K, while actual projection 4K resolution is 4096×2160 (4 times the amount of 2K)


HD, Full HD, QHD, UHD… whats next? Insane HD? I actually use my current note 3 all the day with automatic brightness and energy mode, so my battery can atleast hold on for 1 day…
