Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to pack 6” non-flexible screen, says source

Flexible display technology looks less and less likely to make it to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 by the day, after a fresh source testified that manufacturing challenges mean Samsung will opt for a traditional screen instead.

According to Oled-display.net, Samsung will debut a device with a massive OLED six-inch screen during the second half of the year. And while its report doesn’t mention the Galaxy Note 3 by name, it’s almost certainly the next iteration of Samsung’s flagship phablet that’s being referred to.

The display-industry news site also adds heft to previous claims that production problems have prompted Samsung to scrap plans to equip the the Galaxy Note 3 with flexible display technology.

Assuming Oled-display.net can be believed, the decision has been forced on Samsung because its production line has insufficient capacity to produce bendy displays in the numbers that a huge release such as the Galaxy Note 3 demands.

Samsung flexible AMOLED display prototype

Last month, Sam Mobile disclosed that a flexible screen-toting prototype Galaxy Note 3 has been created, alongside one that differs only very slightly from the current model and another that’s completely redesigned from the Galaxy Note 2.

Augmenting the Note 3’s putative spec-sheet, at least as far as the tech rumour mill is concerned, is a 13-megapixel camera, is a quad-core processor and support for the stylus that differentiates the Note range from its phablet forbears.
