Based on a leaked listing, South Korea will be getting a new phone with the model number SM-G900L and this naming scheme is in line with what will be the Galaxy S5 family. Based on this listing, the phone will get a 5.1-inch display and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, but it’s only going with the same 1920×1080 full HD resolution as the existing Galaxy S4 smartphone. It’ll have some new bells and whistles, but more pixels won’t be one of them.
I can’t say that I’m terribly disappointed. Many people can’t see the difference between 720p and 1080p on regular-sized smartphones, so going from 1080p to 2560×1440 probably wouldn’t be all that noticeable either. That being said, Samsung could still come forward with a version of the Galaxy S5 that rocks 2K and the SM-G900L just happens to be one of the options at the lower end of the S5 scale. Hopefully we’ll find out soon.
