A new Samsung flagship is reportedly in the works

When the rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S5 first started raining down upon us, we were pelted with hopes of a metal body and a gorgeous QHD display. When the smartphone was officially announced, we were greeted with what was more evolution than revolution — that meant a slight bump in screen size to 5.1 inches, the same 1080p resolution, and a body that was still constructed primarily of plastic.

We’re now getting a few more glimpses of the next Samsung “flagship” with specs matching what people were first expecting with the Galaxy S5. The so-called Galaxy F will reportedly be announced in September according to serial leaker @evleaks.

Reports suggest that the Galaxy F will come equipped with a QHD (2560x1440) display like the LG G3, and will actually sport a full metal back (unlike the faux-metallic G3). There are also reports that a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor will be onboard to provide not only faster processing speeds to fuel the QHD display, but also a fast onboard modem courtesy of the 225Mbps LTE-A Qualcomm MDM9635.

a 5" QHD screen is actually great news for the Oculus Rift. Would be perfect for the consumer version. Hopefully it can also do 120Hz using display-port.

No, if you want to use these smartphone displays for virtual reality gaming, you're waiting another 5+ years minimum. These QHD displays are only good for 60Hz.
