We have heard reports and seen benchmarks of alleged Samsung Galaxy S5 devices that were packing Full HD displays. In fact these rumours seem to contradict reports that the Galaxy S5 would pack a QHD display, but according to other rumors, Samsung could be launching multiple variants of the Galaxy S5. One would supposedly be a higher-end model with a QHD display, and the other would be the more “normal” model with a Full HD display. Apart from the difference in display resolution, we’re not sure if there are any other differences under the hood.
Now thanks to a report from Korean news out, ETNews, it has been suggested that there will indeed be at least two Galaxy S5 variants, and apparently the model with the Full HD display is expected to go on sale late-March as per an earlier rumor, while the QHD model will go on sale at a later date, although no specific dates or a timeframe was given. The report claims that this is due to Samsung being unable to optimize the image quality of their QHD displays, thus the delay. Assuming this is true, we’re not sure how this will impact the sales of the Galaxy S5. For all we know it could be an iPhone 5c situation where customers might decide to either wait or shell out a bit more money for the higher-end model, unless of course the Full HD Galaxy S5 is priced very competitively. Either way since these are rumors, try not to be too worried and check back with us on the 24th of February for all the details.
