Rumors have been flying all over the internet that Samsung is working on its flagship device, along with a bunch of other handsets that are expected to see the daylight at the MWC 2014. According to a new report from ZDNet Korea, Samsung is going to announce its first smartphone with QHD display sporting a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels at the Mobile World Congress in February. In case you don’t know, MWC 2014 will take place in Barcelona from February 24th until February 27th.
According to this report, Samsung has passed the testing phase and next year’s flagship device will boast a QHD resolution, which is way better than the Full HD displays that are being shipped with smartphones nowadays. The 2K resolution was recently revealed on GFXBench as well, but there was no name of the device except for a vague model number — SM-G900S.
The report didn’t reveal the device, but judging by the specifications mentioned for next year’s flagship, I think it’s safe to assume it’s Samsung Galaxy S5 as we’ve heard in the past about these features being a part of the upcoming flagship device from Sammy.
In addition, there’s also a word on the internet that it will feature Iris scanning technology, which will be used as a security measure and would scan your eye to give you access to the phone. It turns out the fingerprint scanning technology didn’t come to fruition for Samsung and they’re switching their focus to Iris Scanner.
Lastly, the report also mentions the launch of Tizen OS. It’s still to be seen if it will come with the Samsung Galaxy S5 or with any other device. I doubt they’ll launch the Galaxy S5 with Tizen as it’s still not as widely popular as Android. Let’s see what the Korean OEM is planning.
