The much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5's 5.25in screen with 2560x1440 AMOLED display is set to enter its mass production stage, according to reports.

Reports claim the WQHD resolution 5.25in screen will also feature a high pixel density of 560ppi for better viewing of the screen from different angles. It has been also understood that the Galaxy S5 handset will be similar to the likes of Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 in screen pixel arrangements. The Korean tech giant is said to stick with the diamond pixel arrangement on the screen, just like its handsets seen in 2013.

The news comes from several interviews taken by unnamed industry sources but since Samsung has not revealed anything about Galaxy S5 handset officially, the mass production news can be taken as a rumour for now.

Since the CES (Consumer Electronic Show) 2014 is just a couple of weeks away from now, previous rumours have also hinted the handset would be revealed early in January around or during the event. The reports are however, yet to be confirmed, according to Android Authority.

Other companies are also expected to reveal their flagship devices, including HTC M8, LG G Flex 2 and others.
