Samsung to debut the 1080p model of Galaxy S5 only
The QHD Galaxy S5 model will launch few months after the cheaper full HD variant
On Monday we reported that Samsung Galaxy S5 got its first early listing in the online page of the Dutch retailer Typhone ahead of the adrenaline-rushing upcoming Unpacked 5 event. The page shared most of the specs based on rumors and speculations that we were reviewing for the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately, the retailer’s page also listed the device to sport a full HD screen resolution in contradiction to the expected QHD display. Back then, we assured you that there’s no reason to panic for two reasons: first, early retailer listing usually puts up details based on rumors; and second, the 1080p display will most be present on the cheaper plastic variant of the fifth generation Galaxy S. Fortunately, we have another reason to believe that, as today’s report confirm that the more expensive model will sport the desirable QHD display.
As the next flagship device will debut in two variants, the higher-tier model will arrive with a 2560×1440 pixels of resolution along with the premium metallic build. The Korean media reports that the QHD model will be delayed as it will launch few months after the cheaper full HD variant. Apparently, Samsung is dealing with some issues regarding the optimization of the picture quality in the QHD model, so it will take some time for the company to sort it out. When that happens, the device will sport a smaller 5.1-inches display in comparison to the 1080p variant that is said to be a 5.25-incher.
It appears that the Unpacked event that will take hold next Monday during the MWC will be dedicated to the Full HD cheaper version of Galaxy S5. The standard variant is reported to be dust and water resistant and will arrive with a fingerprint scanner built onto the home button. Although it’s not the QHD model, it’s still a precious device to be looking forward to see.
