Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to come with flexible display?

samsung_mobile_logo_feature

Okay, ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of the week. That special time when we discuss some juicy rumors. Recently, we heard that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be coming this October, though we took that rumor with a pinch of salt and decided to wait for some solid stuff. In the meantime, an online Korean newspaper known as http://news.mk.co.kr/ is spilling some beans about the next Galaxy Note.

According to the web publication, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 2 with a 12MP camera… but that’s not all. It will be the first smartphone to feature Samsung’s flexible LED display. It will be a 5.4 Inch display on a device rocking Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, means that it will be Samsung’s first batch of devices featuring the mighty new iteration of Android.

However, there is no word on release dates, nor is there anything about pricing; earlier rumors suggested that it will be out somewhere near October. But, we can’t just put our money that easily on rumors, so we would like to wait for a leaked screenshot or blurrycam, at least. When Samsung introduced the flexible displays at CES, they also mentioned that the first smartphone with this feature will be launched later this year.

That’s all we know about the next big ‘monster’ from Samsung at the moment, but don’t forget to share your thoughts with us in the comment box below.

Thanks Alex Dumitru for the tip

      Flexible display would mean the whole phone would also be flexible, not just the screen. You could sit on it, bend it, twist it, drop it without worrying about shattering the display… Corning has already developed flexible glass which can be used in such devices. Only thing left to think about is how the other components will bend??

    All this is well and good, but we had
    hoped that they would have a better screen, Full HD, like on the new LG screen,
    full 1920 x 1080P in an SAMOLED +, but NOT Pentile. And, completely water-proof
    and drop-proof, as well.

    We would also like to see them
    make their screen truly superambiphobic (that is: VERY water (hydrophobic) and
    oil (oleophobic) repellant, to cut down on smudges and fingerprints).

    A superambiphobic screen is able
    to keep itself completely clean of smudges, smears, water spots, oil stains,
    fingerprints, etc. Let’s get it on, Samsung! Recently I saw a friend’s phone
    after he signed in with gestures. From several feet away I could see the
    pattern he used smeared on the screen, even after several minutes of use. That
    is NOT secure, we NEED better glass, superambiphobic glass, to be exact.

    Face Unlock should be available.

    It should also try to be a bit
    more future-proof. 2GB of RAM and 32GB Internal storage these days is an
    absolute MINIMUM! We’d actually like to see 4 and 64, or more, standard, by the
    end of the year.

    Don’t forget the wireless charger,
    with at least a 12” charging range, 5 feet would be better.

    For expanded storage it should
    have a microSD card slot able to handle at least 64GB, and a micro-USB3 port
    for external access and drives.

    The latest iteration of Bluetooth
    goes without saying, but so many aren’t paying attention, so I’ll say it. And
    for goodness sake, update and simplify pairing. Gracious what a mess everything
    seems to be, needlessly.

    Further, it should have Dolby
    Mobile 3 with support for 5.1 sound via HDMI out.

    Then, make sure it can play full
    HD for at least 10 or 11 hours, minimum.

    Let’s not forget an updated, more
    useful Stylus. The stylus should have a finer point, and the stylus INSIDE a
    full PEN-sized adapter should fit inside the case of the unit. It should have
    less lag. The current stylus is just too small to handle well, and the point is
    too broad for fine work.

    Voice control is a must, and must
    be MUCH improved.

    NFC is a MUST! And you should
    include some of your own NFC TecTiles as a sample, too, say 5 or 6 of them.

    Don’t forget, Android 4.1 should
    be loaded out of the box, with NO bloatware.

    Then, of course, you can make it a
    Nexus device, to avoid bloatware and speed up updates.

    Then, bring it to all carriers, as
    you did with the S III.

    NOW, Samsung, you would be getting
    somewhere.
