Samsung: Galaxy Smartphones with 2560×1440 in 2014, 4K in 2015

Vlad Savov, The Verge:

It’s time to start getting used to discussing WQHD resolution, or 2560 x 1440 pixels, in relation to smartphones. Samsung’s Analyst Day gathering today shed some light on the company’s future plans, and the display category was highlighted by the promise of 560ppi AMOLED panels for phones. Combine that with the 1440p resolution and you get a 5.2-inch handset — the same dimensions as on LG’s 1080p G2, but with 78 percent more pixels. And if that’s not enough, we’re told to look forward to 4K resolutions — also known as Ultra HD or 3840 x 2160 — in 2015.

Do we need 2560×1440 on a 5.x-inch smartphone? Of course not. But I’ll take it just as long as there’s all-day battery life. 4K in 2015? Absolutely. By 2015 we should have a decent amount of 4K content to watch, especially if Netflix has its way with 4K streaming. Oh, and make sure to use a sapphire cover glass to protect those awesome OLED displays.
