Upcoming Samsung smartphones can never seem to shake rumors that they could be the models to premiere some of Samsung’s flexible display technology. Samsung’s been previewing its work on such flexible OLED components at trade shows over the years, and everyone’s been wondering when the company will get around to finally commercializing them. One idea has been that Samsung would start small, and rather than introducing a full-on bendable phone, might market such display panels as being “unbreakable.” That popped-up early on in the rumors for the Galaxy S 4, but didn’t come to pass. The very same notion is back on the table now, this time attached to the Galaxy Note III.
We’ve already heard that the Note III could be the largest model in the series to date, measuring-in at 5.9 inches and moving up to a full 1080p resolution. Honestly, that has us a little wary of these claims, as trying do a big, 1080p display while also trying out this new fabrication technique to make indestructible screens sounds like putting too many eggs in one basket; might it not be more likely for Samsung to try out this flexible tech on a screen it’s more comfortable making – maybe something phone-sized and lower-res?
