Samsung’s next smartphone/tablet hybrid, the Galaxy Note 2, will feature a much-vaunted ‘flexible’ AMOLED display, a Korea Times report claims.
No, you won’t be able to bend it like those crazy Samsung Youm displays we saw a while back that are probably still too expensive to be mass produced. What we’re more likely to get is a slightly concave panel similar to the Galaxy Nexus.
While that may not get your pulse quickening, what’s more impressive, perhaps, is that it uses a cutting-edge new technology called Unbreakable Plane (UBP), which as the name suggests, is meant to withstand more pressure and knocks than your average Galaxy kit.
Details are still thin on the ground for the phablet. However, rumours suggest it will bring a slightly larger 5.5-inch screen, a revamped stylus (possibly featuring a mic), a quad-core processor and an improved battery.
Samsung is expected to officially announce the Galaxy Note 2 at a pre-IFA press gathering on August 29th. We’ll bring you all the details as soon as we have them. Stay tuned.
