Samsung commences production of 5.25-inch displays for Galaxy S 5


Reports from Korean web side DDaily indicate Samsung has commenced production of their new 5.25-inch AMOLED displays to be used in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5. The screen is expected to be a 2560×1440 2K display. Similar to the technology used for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3, the new display uses a diamond pixel arrangement. Each of the red and blue pixels is shaped like a diamond, with normal green pixels interleaved throughout, which is supposed to increase sharpness and pixel density. For the size and resolution, the Galaxy S5 screen will be running at 560 ppi.

The Galaxy S5 is expected to also come equipped with 3GB of RAM, a 16MP camera and will have Android KitKat 4.4 installed. Like other Samsung devices, the processor will likely vary by market with Snapdragon 800, Snapdragon 805 and 64-bit Exynos processors all believed to be candidates.

    Their diamond pixel arrangement isn’t as great as they claim. I forgot where I saw it but there was a pretty good write up critiquing this new pattern. They really need to update the Touchwiz look. It’s a hideous combination of colors.

      Samsung is really on top of their game with the hardware, but if they don’t improve their software and build quality they will begin to lose market share to hungry competitors over the next few years.

      • Agree. Gotta remove the bloatwares. Consumers don’t use them that much.
