It has been rumored multiple times that Samsung might release a high resolution display next year, one that may have pixel density has high as 560 pixels per inch. Such a display would without a doubt be perfect for the company’s own flagship smartphones, and next year its expected to launch the Galaxy S5, which might become the first smartphone to debut the company’s new display. Recently the company conducted an Analyst Day in Korea where market analysts were briefed on various aspects of the business, a presentation made by Samsung Display CEO Kinam Kim there has leaked online which clearly shows that the company will reach 560ppi Super AMOLED displays in 2014. Recent rumors suggest that Samsung is close to mass producing these displays.
If Samsung doesn’t increase the display size on Galaxy S5 and keeps it at 5 inches, a display like this would result in a phenomenal resolution of 2,560×1,440 pixels on a smartphone. That’s a tad bit higher than the pixel resolution on Apple’s new iPad Air. Even if the average user coming up from a full 1080p HD display doesn’t find any noticeable difference in the new display, Samsung would certainly gain bragging rights for being the first to ship a 560ppi phone. Samsung hasn’t confirmed anything about the Galaxy S5 just yet, so its best to take rumors with a pinch of salt right now. The leaked presentation of Samsung Display CEO can be found here.
