The rumor mill is hot with the latest rumblings about Samsung’s likely Galaxy S IV. We heard that Samsung may have three new devices in development, and the one that most people took notice of is “Project J,” which is likely to be the Galaxy S IV. The most recent rumor on the Galaxy S IV did not tell us any details about the device, just stated that Samsung is actually working on it.

Well, in a report from Reuters, we have learned the newest flagship device from Samsung may actually include an unbreakable screen. That would certainly be a convenient feature, as the screen is the part of the phone is usually the most prone to damage from drops. The rumors claim that Samsung will replace glass substrate with plastic material, which would be much less likely to break.

If not the Galaxy S IV, the phone that comes after, which will probably be called Galaxy S V, will almost certainly include an unbreakable display which might even be flexible. Other than these screen, we’ve heard some reports of solid specs for the Galaxy S IV. It looks like it will come with a solid quad-core processor and some other slick goodies.

Whether the screen is unbreakable or not, we’ve heard that it will most certainly be better than the screen of the Galaxy S III. It could have a pixel density of 441 pixels per inch, which is substantially better than the S III’s 306 ppi. We are quite sure we will hear plenty more rumors of the Galaxy S IV before it releases. Speaking of which, we’ve heard rumors that device could be announced as soon as April or May, so we may not have to wait all that long.

  1. They should combine this with some kind of waterproofing (like Liquipel or HzO). Such a phone might not be indestructible, but it would survive a good majority of common accidents.

  2. Isn’t plastic usually more susceptible to scratching? I assume it will be a great product, I’m just curious as to the drawbacks when compared to gorilla glass 2.
