Samsung Galaxy S5 might have a 2K LTPS display made by Sharp, AMOLED on the backburner

Apple gets a lot of crap because they use tech/parts from other manufacturers. Now let's see if Samsung gets the same treatment because they're going to use displays from another manufacturer.

Bait comment, but I agree with you. Time to sit back and enjoy the popcorn.

Sharp makes the best displays in every department, so I don't think so.

Mostly accurate, forgot part where them same parts cost three times more to the consumer.
Glitter tax I guess.

What other manufactures? Apple is not an manufacture, They make nothing, just design, They don't even assemble their devices, it is completely different from samsung...

Forget about the display, this concept is damn cool.
If Sammy brings Note4 with this design language i will definitely go for it.

I love AMOLED, but if Samsung wows me, I'm definitely buying.

Me too, I hope that they especially concentrate on software. Touchwiz is very good already, but there is lot of improvement still to do. I'd like to see bit flatter UI and closer to vanilla Android.

Leaks of the the galaxy tab pro shows a new tw ui, which seems much cleaner so chances are the phones will have a new tw too

Yeah I love amoled too but right now because of how high resolutions are getting I don't think I will miss it that much. But all the same, a 2k amoled screen would have been mind blowing. OMG!! I think I still love Amoled.lol
Sticking to my note 3.

Have you ever seen the screen on a Samsung S4 active? It's the best display I've ever seen thus far except plasmas. I have a note 3 and a Samsung 7.7 tablet with amoleds. For sure, they got great displays but displays have blue tint too it, colors are too cold for my taste and colors don't look very natural. On the other hand LCD display on a S4 active have perfect untainted colors way way way better readability in sunlight and more importantly NO MATTER AT WHICH ANGLE YOU LOOK AT IT BLACK STAYS BLACK AND WHITE STAYS WHITE which MAKES IT THE FIRST MOBILE PHONE SCREEN TO EVER HAVE PLASMA GOOD VIEWING ANGLES it has no purple glow at any angles unlike SONY smartphones and iphones do and almost AMOLED good blacks it can boast, too. They, blacks, don't look so inky, though, but they look BLACK however due to perfect uniformity of the screen( something I've only seen on plasma TVs) and NO SCREEN BLEEDING. I'd say it is a plasma good display and if you google the best tvs of 2013 you'll find that plasma TVs are the best TVs ever. If Samsung will use the same kind on S5 it'd feel a breath of fresh air belee dat, man!

If it's going to be based on Sharp's efficient, tru-color IGZO technology, it's superb news. I don't mind AMOLED one way or another, but maybe it's better for tablets since both are great for movies, while IPS and IGZO are good for mobile where you take and edit photos before sharing, and it's important to have colors and saturation natural.

I'm sorry but a 2K display is absolutely ridiculous in a 5" display. That sounds like a gimmick to me.
Why can't there be a crazy push for a new battery technology or something that is actually useful. All a 2K display does is eat battery and a put an unnecessary strain on hardware-not even mentioning the issues developers will have optimizing their software for something like that.

I'm not buying this story. I'm not saying its not possible but i think samsung will give us a 2k super amoled HD display. When the s4 rumors started they're similar rumors about samsung dumping super amoled. I won't believe it until it happens.

If they ditch the amoled it would be a big step forward in my book. Never liked the hd amoleds.
