Samsung Introduces Korea To The Galaxy S5 LTE-A, The Phone's Impressive QHD Display, And Its Snapdragon 805 Processor

Being the successful multinational conglomerate that Samsung is, its products are known the world over. But some of its toys are destined for use just in its homeland of Korea. The newly unveiled Galaxy S5 LTE-A is one such product. We can drool over the device, with its support for LTE Advanced and data speeds that most of us in the States can only dream of experiencing (Samsung's advertising speeds of 225mbps down), but there's more of a reason for us to take notice of it than that. No, it's the hardware this phone's packing that matters.

The Galaxy S5 LTE-A will come with a 5.1-inch 1440 by 2560 display, putting it on par with the LG G3 (the first QHD handset to hit the market).

[Weekend Poll] Do You Actually Want A Display With A Resolution Greater Than 1080p In Your Next Phone?

LG's G3 has a lot of pixels. Like, a lot a lot. 534 of them per inch, if you want to get precise. How sharp is it? It's pretty damn sharp.

Yes, this actually is the G3's screen. Wowzers.

But is there any practical, even technical, reason to keep pushing on the pixel density front in smartphones? Or will QHD finally be our stopping point? Should 1080p have been? Do you care?

The only benefit we're aware of for such resolution comes in the form of enhanced clarity for fonts in the CJK languages (Chinese, Japanese, Korean), where complex shapes and tapering can make small text difficult to read on a standard 1080p display.

Rumor: Motorola DROID HD/Spyder To Be Released As The DROID RAZR, Infused With A qHD Super AMOLED Display

Remember that sleek 4.5-inch Motorola looker we encountered last month? It's back, but no longer will it be known as the DROID HD or the DROID Spyder; according to the latest rumor (courtesy of This is my Next), the device is none other than the DROID RAZR. Yes, that's the name of the phone that in 2004 saved Motorola from bankruptcy (before it plunged into the profitless dregs of mobile society a second time, that is).

The name change is accompanied by a full list of specs, but first let's take a look at the handset itself and see what the hype is all about:

And now for the spec sheet - in a word, it's drool-worthy:

  • 4.3-inch 960x540 Super AMOLED display (no PenTile!!!

DROID 3 Gets In-Depth Hands-On: Pentile Display And Puny Amounts Of RAM Included

The DROID 3, like the DROID 2, has been pretty lax about showing itself off prior to any sort of official announcement from Motorola. Today, the DROID 3 has been all but fully revealed by a member over at XDA China. Two things from that post immediately caught our attention: a qHD Pentile display, and 512MB of RAM. Both of them should make you queasy.

We aren't big fans of Moto's Pentile qHD displays, particularly as it appeared on the DROID X2. If your vision is good, and you hold your phone at a normal distance from your face (read: about one foot - not three), Pentile looks like crap - there's little argument.

Looking at the image of the phone, the blue notification bar suggests that the device will come with Gingerbread pre-installed, as that is exactly what the Gingerbread build for the original Droid X looks like.

[Leak] Droid X 2 Pictures, Benchmark, And Video

Well, well, well... look what our friends over at Techno Buffalo have come across - the Droid X2! One of their loyal tipsters has sent in some really great pictures of the DX2, including side-by-side shots with the original Droid X. And as if that weren't enough, they even grabbed a quick video of this upcoming monster performing a Quadrant benchmark. I know you're probably frothing at the mouth to see that, so it's first in line:

Did you see that score? Yeah, that was huge. Of course, I would expect nothing less, considering some of the rumored specs:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 768MB RAM
  • 4.3 inch qHD screen (960x540)
  • 8MP Camera
  • Android 2.2.2

Some benchmarks that have appeared over at Nenamark are basically confirming the presence of a Tegra 2 dual-core processor and a qHD display, the latter via the device's reported resolution of 960x540.
