Rumor: Galaxy Note II to feature flexible display

updated 03:05 pm EDT, Sun August 12, 2012

New device's screen said to be tougher than usual

In the run-up to the late-August launch for Samsung's Galaxy Note II, yet another rumor has emerged, one claiming that the new phablet will feature a flexible AMOLED display. Korea IT Times carries a report that Samsung will finally be bringing the flexible AMOLED technology it has been working on for some time now to a wide-release consumer product. The technology is expected to result in a much tougher handset less susceptible to shocks and breakage.

The flexible AMOLED technology won't actually allow for users to freely bend their devices. Instead, Samsung will slightly bend the screen, and that slight bend -- in combination with the unbreakable plane display technology and a plastic substrate -- will result in a screen tougher than those typically found on touchscreen smartphones. The technology will also allow Samsung more space to increase the Galaxy Note II's battery capacity beyond that found in the original Galaxy Note.

Samsung has already confirmed that the company plans to reveal the Galaxy Note II in Berlin on August 29. The device is believed to have already shown up on a number of benchmarking sites. Purportedly, the next iteration of Samsung's phablet will feature a larger screen while maintaining a slightly smaller footprint than the original. [via Android Community]
