Full HD displays (1920 x 1080 pixels) will be a thing of passé soon.
At its first ever Analyst Day Conference in South Korea, smartphone manufacturer Samsung detailed its plans and strategies for its future devices. Company hinted about what we could see in its upcoming devices in terms of their display, processor and camera.
According to the company, if 2013 was the year of 1080p resolution, then the 2014 would see a UHD resolution displays pushing the pixel density to as high as 560 ppi. Combining the resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and pixel density, we get a device with a 5.2 inch display, which rumors indicate for the company’s next flagship Galaxy S5. If this does not sound impressive enough, then the manufacturer also plans to bring 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels in its mobile display by the year 2015. All of the displays would be based on Samsung’s AMOLED technology.
However, we are not yet sure how it will help the users since their is no practical benefit of high pixel density of 560 ppi as the human eye can barely make any difference in display beyond 300 ppi pixel density.
Though, Samsung has started curved displays with the Galaxy Round smartphone launched in Korea last month, its not actually fold-able or even curved per se. But that is set to change, as the company now will be producing bendable and eventually flexible displays starting 2016 which can be used for wearable devices and phones making them durable and fold-able for space saving.
Samsung also talked about its processors, which as expected will start 64-bit computing support as seen on the iPhone 5S and new iPads. We will see this application processor sometime next year, and following it up company will also introduce a customized 64-bit Exynos processor.
Moving on to cameras, Samsung stated that it will launch 16 Mega Pixel Isocell sensors over the next two years. Isocell sensor technology was recently demoed by the company and it claims to increase light sensitivity along with color fidelity resulting in better images even in poor lightning conditions.
Company also shared some statistics about the growth of its mobile phones and tablets. Since the advent of its flagship Galaxy S and Note series, it has sold more 100 million units. Though it still lags behind Apple, when it comes to tablets market share, its growing rapidly selling more than 40 million tablets since June last year.
