Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to feature ‘unbreakable display’: Report

With Samsung Galaxy S 4 already out in the open, the industry insiders have now started to focus on Samsung’s next big launch – Galaxy Note 3. According to inside sources in Korea, Samsung is expected to use an unbreakable display in Note 3.

A report in asiae.co.kr has revealed that Samsung will be using some kind plastic OLED display in the Note II successor, or at least what I could understand from the Google translated version of the site.

The report further added that the unbreakable nature of the Note 3 display will be its most important feature. The Korean manufacturer is likely to showcase the new display at IFA Trade fair later this year and the company will begin the mass production of this display in fourth quarter (most prob. October). The Galaxy Note 3 is also expected to be announced around the same time.

The Korean publication has also noted that LG is ready with its version of plastic OLED unbreakable display and we might see it in Optimus G2 smartphone.

This is not the first time we are hearing about the presence of flexible or unbreakable display in a Samsung Android phone. Similar rumours came out before the launch of Note II and even Galaxy S 4, so I am a little sceptical to believe this year.

If true, this will certainly be the USP of the next Note series phablet.

Update: Another report originating from Korea has mentioned the Note 3 display size to be 5.9-inch instead of earlier rumoured 6.3-inch. The report also adds that Samsung will be showing the Note 3 prototype to AT&T in the United States.
