Online retailer lists full-HD version of Galaxy S5, screenshot confirms QHD display

Two different versions of the Galaxy S5 have leaked today, one with a full-HD screen and the other with a QHD display.

Samsung Galaxy S5

Samsung is said to be considering two different versions of the Galaxy S5. One is said to be a full-HD variant, while the other is said to be a higher-end model with an embedded finger scanner and a Quad-HD screen with an all-metallic chassis. The fact has been confirmed before in AnTuTu benchmarks, and today’s leaks reinforce the rumor.


First, an online store in the Netherlands called Typhone listed the full-HD version of the Galaxy S5. The listing indicates a full-HD screen along with a 16 MP camera, both features that will likely make their way onto the Galaxy S5. The store confirms availability by March 2014. However, an alleged Galaxy S5 screenshot that leaked today indicated a Quad-HD screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. The screen size is at 5.2 inches, which comes out to a pixel density of 560 ppi.


The only confirmation thus far is the fact that Samsung is going to launch the Galaxy S5 next week at the Mobile World Congress. O2 Germany posted an image on its site stating that more details on the Galaxy S5 would be available by the end of February. O2’s Galaxy S5 page has a form that allows interested customers to “Get news about Samsung that can do more.” While the page does not mention the Galaxy S5 by name, the title offers a subtle clue: “Anticipation High 5.”
