Samsung has begun mass producing 5.25-inch AMOLED displays for the Galaxy S5, end of this month to be exact.
The new display has a diamond pixel arrangement like the S4 and Note 3′s display - green pixels interleaved with alternating red and blue pixels, but with each red and blue pixel shaped like a diamond for increased sharpness and pixel density.
The resolution of the screen will be 2,560×1,440 pixels, equating to a pixel density of 560 ppi, and rumors suggest an LCD variant of the S5 might exist as well.
The 5.25″ size itself makes sense if you consider that LG's current flagship, the G2, features a 5.2″ panel. And the competition between Samsung and LG on all fronts is well known, so we assume that Samsung didn't want its device to feel inferior in any way to LG's.
2014 is indeed shaping up to be the year of 2,560×1,440 resolution in ultra high-end handsets. One wonders where we'll be at in a couple of years' time.
