Apple is likely set to introduce a phone with a larger screen to better compete with the Galaxy S5 and other Android phones as the trend of larger screens has proven very popular among consumers.
Poor Apple, they used to know what we wanted before we did. Now they're reacting to their competitors's success by following in their footsteps. Maybe the iphone 6 will have wireless charging, NFC and an IR blaster too.

Samsung’s next flagship smartphone is expected to carry an ultra-high resolution AMOLED display operating at 2,560 x 1,440
Hooray, that S4 has such bad resolution it's barely usable. Seriously... has anyone complained ever of needing more resolution than full HD? The complaints about Samsung are the plastic case and the childish UI. They're fixing the UI, but will there be a metal case this time around? They keep 'improving' the stuff that's fine. I don't get it.

MilwaukeeMike, I was pretty sure that most of the rumors that I've heard were that the chassis is going to be metal instead of plastic. We'll be finding out soon enough.

Personally I think the S4's display resolution is more than ample and clear. It's a wildly popular phone and I would've considered it were it not for it's size. Samsung's S range of phones will always be like Apples garbage, both with fans and detractors. As for the metal case, personally I couldn't care less, I'd rather have it all plastic, it's far more scratch and scuff resistant.
