Samsung, speaking to analysts, laid out its technology roadmap for the next several years and there are some notable milestones on the horizon. The company is already working on smartphone displays with WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution that include 560 pixels per inch. These will arrive as soon as next year. Samsung expects to have Ultra HD, or 4K, resolution displays available for smartphones as soon as 2015. Ultra HD screens include 3840 x 2160 pixels. In addition to the higher resolution displays, Samsung fully expects to bring bendable displays to the market by next year and foldable displays by late 2015 or early 2016. Beyond screens, Samsung is working to create 3D, 64-bit processors; a new, stacked 16-megapixel image sensor; and faster, higher-capacity memory.

So I wonder..

I don't mean this in a bad way, but what's the point of finer and finer screens when they're already at pixel pitches past what the human eye can perceive? I already can't pick out the individual pixels on my buddy's S4.
i agree, more pixils also require more battery to use, and more processing power, i could understand this on bigger tablets, but lets get better priced 4K tv's first
These aren't even common on 23"+ computer monitors. So why the obsession with higher resolutions that don't even make a difference anymore? I understand that mobile is a hotter market, but it's starting to level off for sure.

Battery War?

Okay I know we are all a little spec war crazy, I know I have gotten caught up in it. But there is one spec that hasn't changed a lot and that's the damn battery. Can they begin the battery way yet, and try and achieve a battery that will last 10 years and could power a super computer for a week that's as big as the phones processors and use them in phones.

I know that sound sci-fi but 10 years ago had you said we would have mini computers in our pockets now you would have been laughed at. But we can't advanced our phones much more without better batteries, we have two options just keep the same phone but make it more efficient, similar to the Moto X, or improve the damn battery already.
