Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime will have 5.2 inch QHD glass says insider
According to someone who worked on the Kids Mode for the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime will feature a 5.2 inch display with a QHD resolution (1440 x 2560). The device is code named the Samsung Galaxy S5 G906 with an internal name of KQ (Lentis). This would be Samsung's first device flaunting a QHD screen and depending on when the device is launched (assuming, of course, that it WILL be launched), this could be the first phone offered in the U.S. with such a resolution.

It appears that the next-gen version of the Samsung Galaxy Mega will keep the 720 x 1280 resolution that the OG models offered. This time, the phone will offer a screen somewhere between last year's 5.8 inch and 6.3 inch models, with a 6 inch screen. Code named the K Mega (Vasta), the product code is G750. Lastly, the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini aka the Atlantic, Galaxy S5 Dx, the K mini or the G800, will feature a 4.5 inch screen, also with a 720 x 1280 resolution.

When the Samsung Galaxy S5 was unveiled at MWC in Barcelona, there was much disappointment since many had expected the 1440 x 2560 resolution glass. Now, it seems that Samsung is ready for redemption, with the premium version of its flagship phone.

They have to say "glass" otherwise everyone will just assume the screen is made of the same ugly plastic as the rest of the phone.

lol. Screens are not made out of glass... The glass is just covering the screen. And there are phones where the cover is plastic (very rare though)

They used this word just for a terminology, not for a real material... like we use word "juice" about battery, does it mean baterry really gives a juice? ofcourse not... use common sense

He probably wanted to clarify its a non flexible display. As flexible OLEDs are mostly based on plastic as glass isn't bendable.

Hopefully Samsung will offer a high quality QHD LCD on this new phone instead of AMOLED. AMOLED screens with all the missing subpixels aren't so great for text display.

What about a non-petile AMOLED screen?

They fixed all the major drawbacks with AMOLED screens, except maybe burn-in issues

If the AMOLED technology evolves and Samsung offered an AMOLED screen with all the subpixels, that might turn out very well.

I think there will be non-petile AMOLED sooner
The S4 had one of worst display in term of brightness, now the S5 has one of the brightest displays around

Also LG showed of their OLED TVs at CES, they are probably also working hard on their OLEDs as well

I hope the technology evolves to offer uniform subpixel layout and resolution. AMOLED already offers good power efficiency and true blacks. These are very nice qualities.

You seriously can notice all this at 441 ppp??

Yes and not just me. If you look through the message forums on the various Android/mobile sites, quite a few other people as well.

Text, especially on a light/gray background, is where people seem to notice the slight fuzziness most (myself included).

When looking at pictures and movies, these issues aren't readily apparent.

Dont say you can see pentile on a 5'2 Qhd resolution!! If yes then sucks to be you..

The human eye is capable of well over 500 dpi resolution. While the eye can't see the individual subpixels at a reasonable viewing distance, it can certainly notice small distortions caused by AMOLED's pentile screen and non-uniform subpixels.

People who doesn't know the difference between PPI and DPI shouldn't be allowed to talk about display.

Most people who know what the terms mean can translate the specific nuances of PPI and DPI according to the medium and context.

For example, Microsoft Windows sets the default display DPI to 96 PPI for monitors that have a physical DPI of less than 116.

Anyways I browse internet a lot and that's the weak point of the LED at the longivity of battery. I prefer an LCD over LED screen. Many LCD screens look so beautiful.

Just like the S5, the quality of the screen depends on how much Samsung pays Displaymate for the report.

" this could be the first phone offered in the U.S. with such a resolution."

Isn't the LG G3 going to be released with a QHD screen in the U.S.?
