We just finished reviewing Verizon’s HTC DROID DNA, which has a super sharp 1080P display and 440 pixels per inch (ppi). Samsung’s about to introduce something just a hair sharper, according to a new report from Asiae. The company is allegedly planning to introduce a 4.99-inch AMOLED display with a full HD resolution and a ppi of 441. “It has more than 100 pixels per inch more than the Apple iPhone’s 326ppi,” an unnamed Samsung official said. The report is far from confirmed, but it makes sense. Samsung is obviously going to continue to build on its existing displays and 1080P screens are the logical next step. We can’t wait to check them out.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 during the 2014 Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona earlier this year, and just a few months later it’s available all around the globe, and from major carriers in the United States for $199 with a new two-year contract.
The device offers brand new hardware components, including a faster processor, and is also equipped with unique parts like a heart rate sensor. Last year’s Galaxy S4 was extremely popular, and Samsung sold millions of units within months of its release.
Is the Galaxy S5 the best smartphone you can pick up right now? Is its camera going to rock your world? Can you really dunk it in the sink? Is the heart rate monitor all it’s cracked up to be?
