December 24, 2013 - Written By Tom Dawson


2013 is very rapidly coming to a close and with that, comes a fresh wave of rumors of what’s to come for 2014. Where most of the attention is aimed is of course, at Samsung’s Galaxy S5, with numerous rumors swirling about the device. So far, we don’t really know all that much but, we know that the device isn’t going to feature a flexible display and we should all probably know that it’s going to be a big improvement upon the Galaxy S4. According to a new report though, the device’s display has already entered mass production.

SamMobile is reporting that the 5.25-inch AMOLED displays destined for the next big thing have already entered mass production ready for next year. As the trend has been with the Galaxy S line, next year’s device is going to see a significant boost in resolution, to QHD which comes in at 2560 x 1440 and easily succeeds the Galaxy S4’s display at 1920 x 1080. As well as this, the pixel arrangement is said to be the same as this year’s flagship, with a diamond arrangement of green pixels combined with alternating red and blue pixels, shaped like diamonds to greatly improve sharpness of the display. All of this comes together to create a display with 560 ppi density.

So far, the specs for the Galaxy S5 are said to be very similar to the Galaxy Note 3, aside from the incredible bump in display resolution. Featuring a Snapdragon 800 – or possibly the 805 – coupled with 3GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel camera and Android 4.4 with the latest version of TouchWiz on top. We’re pretty certain that Samsung will want to keep the Galaxy S line a powerhouse of the Android world so, we’re definitely expecting something powerful from Sammy next year.

Of course, these are just rumors and we really have no idea what the Galaxy S5 is definitely going to offer when it launches next year. However, as the device is going to be needed in massive quantities, we’re not expecting something radical from Samsung, after all they’ve still got to produce enough to adequately meet the requirements of a stressful global launch.
