Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 could feature an LCD panel instead of AMOLED: Rumor

Samsung Galaxy S5The Samsung Galaxy S5 isn’t too far away from launch, so it’s quite obvious that the smartphone is making its way to the news almost every day. A fresh rumor now claims that Samsung might be looking to cut costs with its upcoming flagships in 2014. The report hints that the Korean manufacturer might go with a standard PLS-LCD panel for the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 4 rather than an AMOLED panel which has been used on all seven Samsung flagships so far since 2010.If Samsung chooses to go down this road, it could face a significant dent in its marketshare (although not enough to bring down its sales projections for the year). Of course, there’s no confirmation of this yet, so there’s no way to make sure whether Samsung will actually do this for its premium flagships, although it seems unlikely.

Samsung is preparing to launch several new AMOLED based tablets with the company streamlining the manufacturing of large sized AMOLED panels, so it’s obvious that Samsung will focus more on tablets in 2014.
