A few rumours have been floating around since last few days regarding Samsung’s next flagship device-The Galaxy S5.
The latest piece of information that we have stumbled upon is indeed interesting. According to Korean website ZDNet, Samsung is all set to showcase their next smartphone at Mobile World Congress (MWC) to be held from February 24 to 27. What is exciting about the announcement is the fact that it will be their first smartphone to feature an impressive QHD (2,560×1,440) display. The device has not been named but we assume that this is likely to be the rumoured Galaxy S5 which has been slowly popping its head up since a few days. It is unlikely that the QHD screen would make its way onto something other than Samsung’s next flagship – the Galaxy S5. This speculation does hold some weight as mass production of QHD displays is already underway.
Sources claims that this Ultra HD-display smartphone from Samsung will have the below features:
- An iris verification system that scans user’s eyes as a security measure.
- A 64-bit 2.5GHz processor which is first for an Android smartphone.
- A 5.5-inch device and comes with 4GB of RAM.
The security method for iris scanning technology has already been patented by Samsung. This technology comes as an alternative to finger print scanning feature announced by Apple. This technology would enable users to unlock their smartphones by scanning their eyeballs. This feature can also be used to authenticate online app purchases.
An April launch looks a bit unlikely at this stage but that doesn’t stop Samsung from pulling out some goodies for consumers in 2014.
Like all rumours, let’s take this one too with a pinch of salt and wait till some clear information comes officially from Samsung.
With every company trying to outdo the other in terms of new technology and innovative features, it’s kind of exciting to visualise the next few years where all our Sci-Fi imaginations might just turn true.
