Samsung Galaxy S5 "Prime" with 2560 x 1440 display to be released months after standard version?
A new report claims that Samsung's Galaxy S5 high-end "Prime" with 2560 x 1440 resolution could ship a few months after the standard version due to problems with the WQHD display.
Samsung will finally unveil its highly anticipated Galaxy S5 on Feb. 24 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The company is breaking from tradition by announcing the smartphone at the conference and is also expected to introduce two versions of its next flagship handset. Many reports claim Samsung will introduce a premium version Galaxy S5 "Prime" with a 2K WQHD OLED display with a whopping resolution of 2560 x 1440. The company is also expected to launch a less expensive Galaxy S5 "Standard" that will ship with a 1920 x 1080 Full HD display.
A new report claims that industry insiders have revealed that Samsung has had issues mass producing the high resolution 2560 x 1440 displays for the high-end Galaxy S5 and could end up shipping the device a few months after it starts selling the Galaxy S5 "Standard", which will reportedly go on sale some time in March.
This report sounds like the same issue Apple faced when it introduced its latest smartphones, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. The flagship iPhone 5s shipped on time, but there were supply constraints stemming from the smartphone's new TouchID fingerprint scanner. Many in the tech industry have claimed that Samsung is following Apple by launching two smartphones at varying price points like the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.
As a reminder, the premium Samsung Galaxy S5 "Prime" is expected to feature a 5.2-inch 2560 x 1440 WQHD AMOLED display with a pixel density of 560 pixels per inch (ppi). It will run Android 4.4 KitKat and a new version of Samsung's TouchWiz UI. The smartphone is expected to be powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor or a Samsung Exynos octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM to provide a fast and fluid user interface. Its camera capabilities will reportedly include a 16-megapixel rear camera with 4K UHD video recording support and a 2-megapixel front facing camera. The Galaxy S5 will also reportedly pack in a very large 3,000 mAh battery.
The Galaxy S5 "Standard" is expected to share similar specs, but have a lower resolution Full HD display, 2GB of RAM, and possibly a 13-megapixel camera on board.
As with all reports of unannounced and highly anticipated devices, it's best to take this report with a huge grain of salt. We'll know the full details on Feb. 24.
