We’re still a couple of months away from the Mobile World Congress 2014 but already rumors have started circulating about when we can expect to be announced at the event. It has already been said that Samsung is likely to release its flagship Galaxy smartphone earlier than originally planned in 2014, so some believe that an announcement at MWC 2014 is possible. According to reports coming in from Korea, Samsung is working on a smartphone with a 2,560×1,440 QHD display and an eye scanner which is going to be announced at MWC next year. The Galaxy S5 is rumored to have both the QHD display and the eye scanner.

The display would award some serious bragging rights to Samsung if its able to get its new device out first, there aren’t a lot of manufacturers right now who have QHD display touting smartphones. Chinese manufacturer Vivo’s Xplay 3S is expected to become the first smartphone with such a display panel, however it doesn’t have a global presence like Samsung. The eye scanner is supposed to do pretty much what the name suggests, allow people access to the device based on a match of the iris. According to a number of rumors, the salient features of Galaxy S5 will include the eye scanner and the 2,560×1,440 display. Only time will tell if an announcement is going to be made at MWC 2014, best thing to do right now is wait.
