Samsung’s Galaxy S5 to come with eye-scanning sensor, 2K display: Report

21st December 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

Samsung-logoNew Delhi, India, December 21, 2013: Samsung, a smartphone maker and South Korean giant, at its Analyst Day event in Korea had revealed plans for launching Samsung Galaxy S5 with a screen resolution of 1440×2560 pixels (2K) next year.

Now, a new report emerging from Korea suggests such a device is already in development, and that the Samsung will announce the alleged smartphone at MWC in February 2014. However, the report does not confirm whether the alleged smartphone with a screen resolution of 1440×2560 pixels (2K) will be the rumoured, and anticipated Galaxy S5.

Earlier this month, a GFXBench listing had revealed a device codenamed Samsung SM-G900S sporting a screen resolution of 1440×2560 pixels (2K). The device was believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S5, which is expected to come with a 5.0- or 5.2-inch display, making the pixel density an incredible 560ppi at the said resolution.

In addition, the report also reveals that the Samsung is working on its next line of smartphones that will equip iris recognition or eye-scanning technology for unlocking the phone, authentication etc. Samsung’s expected next flagship smartphone (the Galaxy S5) will probably be the first device to pack such a feature. Unfortunately, the report does not reveal many details of the alleged eye-scanning unlock feature.

The eye-scanning/iris-recognition feature has not been introduced on any smartphone (from a major manufacturer) as an unlocking method, and if the rumour is true, Samsung would become the first handset maker to debut the feature on a smartphone. However, there is no official word from Samsung on the alleged eye-scanning feature.
