Amid speculations of Samsung's next flagship models, Galaxy S5 and Note 4, the South Korean firm might use a PLS LCD display on these two handsets which are expected to be released in 2014.

Samsung is said to use the PLS (Plane to Line Switching) LCD display in a bid to cut down on production cost by around 20 percent. The firm already uses PLS LCD displays in its tablets such as Nexus 10 and Galaxy Note 10.1.

The firm will ditch LCD displays which offer more natural colours and less power usage. Samsung's AMOLED panels also match that of the LCD display quality, while maintaining OLED benefits such as true blacks.

OLED screens are said to be one of the major selling points of the Galaxy line of flagships, making PLS LCD a bad decision by the company, reported Sam Mobile.
