    For quite a while we have been reporting rumors regarding a supposed "premium" version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 which will include a 2K display. New intel has come to light which may fully explain the details. According to this new info, Samsung is developing a new device called Project KQ with the model number model G900. Earlier rumors pegged this device as either a variant of the Galaxy S5, or an F Series Prime Galaxy phone. If this newest rumor is true, it turns out the truth is somewhere in between.

    Here's a quote with the details,

    From what the source of this intel shared, this device will likely only be available in a limited quantity in South Korea only, although Samsung hasn't completely ruled out a limited run in the U.S. as well. Ultimately it will depend on production numbers and if Samsung thinks they market a higher end device anywhere else besides their home country.

    I think I don't want to be the first ones testing the 2K screen phones. 2K screen is not mature enough in hardware/software supports yet. It's not just Samsung, I won't get G3, new Oppo Find for the same reason. Full HD 1080p screen should be more than good enough for my needs.

    It's all starting to add up.... This makes perfect sense, this is not just another Galaxy device, this is the Galaxy Nexus.

    This is clearly a K project. K = Galaxy S5. What makes you think this is a Nexus product?

    I think Samsung is getting their shot at the 2014 Nexus. What Flagship devices are left? LG has the G3 that is coming out shortly. Samsung already launched the S5, HTC launched the M8, who know's what Motorola is doing. The only Nexus worthy device manufacturers are Samsung and LG, that have solid technology on the table. I think the KQ project is the Samsung Nexus as it makes perfect sense, perfect timing and it will come out just in time for the New iPhone to be released....

    Who's buying the new Galaxy S5? Lots of iPhone owners

    Why are you so exited about the new Nexus, we on Verizon could care less, since it will never see big red.

    That's actually a good thing. :biggrin:

    But, what is interesting and what I happen to be a fan of here. Is that if Samsung is having a great a success right now of converting iPhone users to S5 owners, then I think this is a great idea. Why not have a Google/Samsung partnership take out Apple, at their most vulnerable moment the launch of their next iPhone. The strategy is perfect Google is helping Samsung in paying court fees from the lawsuit, why not put a Monster of a phone with the latest technology and most desirable features, including removable battery, expandable micro-sd card, in addition to the QHD features.

    Apple what?!?

    Apple isn't going anywhere.

    But Samsung already had a Nexus phone. It's clearly Moto's turn, something I think Google was reluctant to go forward with while they owned Moto. And, really, the Moto X WAS something of a Nexus phone in several respects.

    Anyway, I just want a phone running vanilla Android that I can root. I have no interest in paying for a 2k display that adds 0 value for me (I think 1080p is already overkill).

    Read through this article it's insightful on "Why Apple has stopped growing..."

    After Googlerola I don't think Motorola stands a chance @ Nexus other than what's left in the Googlerola pipeline...

    Apple is mammoth - there's no way it could sustain that growth rate forever. And saying growth is slowing is light years away from predicting its demise, or even in a decline.

    Positing that a Google/Samsung partnership could "take out Apple" is simply ridiculous.
