Retailer website lists Galaxy S5 with a standard 1080p display
The listed features confront the presence of the QHD screen resolution we’ve been hoping for
As two weeks ago Samsung broke the adrenaline meter with the announcement of the Unpacked 5 event on February 24, we know that Samsung Galaxy S5 is one step closer to its debut. Before that happens, we were absorbing all leaks like sponges in order to build the full image of the device piece by piece. For that matter, the fifth generation Galaxy S surfaced once again, this time on the official site of the Dutch retailer Typhone and the page shares most of the specs, basically confirming the rumors we’ve seen so far. The highlight of the pack listed in the retailer’s page is the full HD display and the kickass 16-megapixel main snapper.
Although the 16-megapixel camera isn’t something unexpected to feel surprised about, the listed features confront the presence of the QHD screen resolution we’ve been hoping for. In fact, when Samsung confirmed working on QHD AMOLED smartphones it came clear that at least one amongst the Galaxy S5 models will feature a QHD display. While the Korean manufacturer is also having plans on launching UHD 4K (3480×2160 pixels) displays in the future it seems that the hot Galaxy S5 won’t come even near that rocket sauce. Fortunately, early retailers listing usually fail to keep any accuracy, so the upcoming flagship handset sporting a standard 1080p display isn’t an official info.
Let’s not panic!
Even if that’s the case, maybe the 1080p display will appear only on the cheaper plastic constructed model of Galaxy S5, while the desirable QHD display will rock the socks off of the more expensive metal constructed higher-tier model with fingerprint sensor. Let’s not forget that this isn’t the first time when a retailer simply puts up placeholder page listing details based on leaks and rumors, so Typhone could be doing exactly that. On the other hand, February 24 will unpack really soon, so we won’t wait that much to find out. Stay tuned.
