Samsung's Flexible Displays Will Arrive This Year, Says Korean Paper

Authored by: Steven Blum — Sep 12, 2012

According to a South Korean newspaper called MK News, Samsung is planning on putting flexible displays into production this year – possibly even in November – in preparation for the release of an "advanced" version of the Galaxy Note 2.

The displays will be AMOLED and, instead of glass, will use a flexible yet strong plastic material for protection, reducing the weight of the phone significantly. It's unlikely that the display itself will be bendable but it will likely be thinner which could result in a Galaxy Note 2 with a significantly slimmer profile.

Samsung says they won't be producing "truly" flexible displays until 2014, so take this rumor with a grain of salt. Certainly we'd love to see the kind of displays Samsung premiered at CES in 2011, but we don't want to get our hopes up too much. 

Steven Blum has written more than 2,000 blog posts as a founding member of AndroidPIT's English editorial team. A graduate of the University of Washington, Steven Blum also studied Journalism at George Washington University in Washington D.C. for two years. Since then, his writing has appeared in The Stranger, The Seattle P-I, Blackbook Magazine and Venture Villlage. He loves the HTC One and hopes the company behind it still exists in a few years.
