As the race towards the first, consumer-ready flexible display smartphone continues, all eyes are on Samsung as the manufacturer is rumored to be ready to unveil its latest masterpiece this week, what the Korean media is calling the Galaxy Round.
The race to out the first, if not the best, curved smartphone has begun and two contenders are already claiming most of the spotlight. Just after rumors of a curved Samsung Galaxy Note 3 surfaced, word about LG's own plans have started to go around the Internet. Now we even have a name for it: the LG G Flex.
The rivalry between LG and Samsung are expected to come to a head once more as the two Korean display and device manufacturers race to put out a smartphone with a curved display. LG is now tipped to be ready for its own reveal this month, matching Samsung's own expected curved Galaxy Note 3 announcement.
Lately we've been talking quite a bit about flexible and unbreakable displays in our smartphones, but everything we've seen thus far have only been prototypes. Samsung looks to change all that and have confirmed we'll see their first (of many) flexible AMOLED display device next month in Korea. LG is also in the mix, but more interesting is the work being done at UCLA on the technology.
It seems that Samsung is trying to keep up the pace and ensure it's spot as a top dog of the mobile device manufacturing industry by pushing forward innovative, if not intriguing, designs and technology. The manufacturer is now publicly admitting its plans to release a smartphone with a curved display next month.
Yesterday we brought news that Samsung was planning to introduce and launch a limited edition Galaxy Note 3 next month employing their YOUM flexible display technology. While we can't be certain of the name, a few more reports have surfaced this afternoon reportedly confirming the news, and it could end up being released as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Active.
After having a few setbacks and being delayed back in April we're now hearing the folks from Samsung are on track to release a product, or two, with their flexible display technology later this year. Devices such as smartphones, or the rumored Galaxy Gear smartwatch could all feature this next-gen technology.
We've been hearing quite a bit regarding Samsung's extremely impressive and exciting flexible display technology for smartphones and tablets, but are now receiving some bad news. Multiple reports have started to surface stating that Samsung has yet again suffered a few setbacks, and their flexible YOUM displays could be delayed once more.
While the star of the show for Samsung at CES was most likely their massive Ultra HD TV sets they had a few tricks up their sleeve in the mobile world, they were just hiding from most of the public. Samsung was showing off their curved or "flexible" AMOLED display technology, something we're hopeful will make its first consumer appearance on their upcoming Galaxy S IV.
We've heard plenty about Samsung's flexible smartphone screens throughout the years, but when CES rolls around in a couple of weeks, Samsung will be ready to show them off once again. This time around, the screen will be 5.5-inches and sport a resolution of 1280x720 - that gives us a pixel density of 267. There will also be a flexible 55-inch TV screen on display, so Samsung has been hard at work to bring us these nifty new displays.
