(Pocket-lint) - Samsung has revealed its smartphone display road map and it is looking to implement massive leaps in the resolution of its screens in the next two years.

While we won't quite have Ultra High Definition 4K handsets next year, with that technology being touted for 2015 instead, the company proposes a step up to a WQHD 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution in the "gap" year. It could even be ready in time for when the company plans to launch its next flagship Android phone, currently and unsurprisingly being dubbed the Galaxy S5.
