    • [2014 February 5, Eric Pfanner, “Samsung Reins In the Theatrics for Galaxy S5”, in The New York Times[1], ISSN 0362-4331:
      There has been speculation that the Galaxy S5 might include new technologies like an eye scanner that would allow the phone to identify its owner, or a so-called Quad HD, or WQHD, display, with ultra-high resolution.]

Usage notes[edit]

Sometimes used to emphasize it being a wide (WQHD) resolution, although technically unnecessary, since the HD resolutions are all wide.
