Galaxy Note 3 rumored to have 5.99-inch Super AMOLED flexible display


After some rumors about the new Galaxy Note 3 featuring an unbreakable, Super AMOLED flexible display, we’re getting some more news from a South Korean report, indicating that this may actually become a reality. Supposedly, production would begin in August, with an official launch coming at some point in September.

The report lists a few reasons why Samsung would want to go this revolutionary route with their next big device— first, they need to make a big splash in the market after poorer than expected Galaxy S 4 sales, and second, LG serves as a major threat, as the company has their own smartphone with a flexible display in the works as well.

Not only that, but Sony and HTC have devices that match up pretty well with the Galaxy Note 3 coming out later this year, in the Xperia Z Ultra and the HTC One Max (T6). The drive for innovation serves as a pretty legitimate reason as well. A device with such features could be the next big thing, and would be the first device on the market with a flexible display, assuming it reaches stores before LG’s device does.

Remember that all of the information above is all rumors, but if it turns out to be true this could be some pretty big news. Check back for future updates as more information comes in.

    How would they do that?! If flexible processors exist, I’ve surely not heard of them. Let alone all the other components of a smartphone. We’re not talking about an e-paper here…
    If it’s just that the display is flexible and there’s a non-flexible area for other components; that would be possible to manufacture, but I wouldn’t be interested in buying one.

      The whole device will be rigid like current models. Flexible simply means there is more give in the screen if you drop it so it won’t break.

      there are plenty of uses for that. first and foremost, a flexible screen is much more resistant. other uses would be maybe pack a pull-out screen that can be bigger than the physical size of the phone. among others.

    Bottom line here people better start respecting Samsung’s gangster. They are definitely the leaders in this space.
