Never let it be said that the Android spec war is over. Samsung is still working on stockpiling new weapons in its quest to continue to dominate the world’s Android market. The latest news from Korean sources report that not only is Samsung working on a QHD AMOLED display, but a UHD display that would feature a 3480 x 2160 resolution.
Samsung has always loved using AMOLED displays in its Galaxy devices and it seems that it wants to stick with them for the foreseeable future. This new rumored QHD screen is nothing to scoff at with a 2560 x 1440 resolution, but the interesting part is the UHD. A 3480 x 2160 resolution inside of a smartphone chassis would be incredible. That is somewhere over 800 pixels per inch, in a smartphone. For reference, the Nexus 10 is 2560×1600, but spread across 10 inches of display space.
We could see some of this technology either being used in the Galaxy S5 that is coming sometime this year or maybe even the next Galaxy Note further down the line. Either way, this is looking like the year of the QHD (quad HD) display. We will be keeping just as close of an eye on this as you will as Samsung’s new devices get closer.
