Samsung Galaxy S5 won't have curved display, report says

We recently learned that the next generation Samsung devices could feature wraparound Youm display, or a curved display like the Samsung Galaxy Round, and also we saw a concept of the Galaxy S5, in which we saw it with a curved display, but it is just a concept. But it seems that a curve display on the Galaxy S5 will stay a dream, as Korea Herald thinks so.

They are reporting that Samsung is “highly unlikely” to launch the S5 with Youm display due to its insufficient capacity, said the sources. Kim Jong-hyun, an analyst at Seoul-based Eugene Investment & Securities, says “The current capacity for flexible panels is not high enough for the Galaxy S5, which will be rolled out early next year. Curved ones will be unveiled late next year as a Galaxy variant rather than as a flagship model,”

It will be really hard for Samsung to supply the Youm display for the S5, because of its high demand, so we might see the Galaxy S5 with a QHD or a PLS LCD. What do you think about it? Don’t forget to tell us in the comment box below.
