Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with flexible display launching as limited edition

Samsung has confirmed that there will be a limited edition Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launching next month with a flexible display.

Speaking to SohuIT, a Chinese news site, a Samsung spokesperson has confirmed there will be a flexible display Galaxy Note 3 available next month as a limited edition device.

However, before we all get excited about this next-generation technology, having a flexible display will not mean that the limited edition Galaxy Note 3 will be bendable.

Despite the existence of flexible screen technology, other components such as batteries, chips and logic boards haven’t been developed with the same malleable qualities as yet.

So, while it might be fun to have a twisting, flexing smartphone, the real benefit of having a flexible screen is its durability. For now at least.

Seeing as Samsung has a habit of launching shock proof and waterproof versions of their smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, it would make sense for the South Korean company to launch a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Active, complete with unbreakable screen.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Features

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has a 5.7-inch Full 1080p HD AMOLED display and packs a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor with 3GB of RAM under the hood.

In the rear there’s a 13-megapixel camera with an LED flash that is capable of recording 4k resolution videos. This is paired with a 2-megapixel snapper in the front for video calling and various selfies.

Running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the Galaxy Note 3 has the latest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI but introduces new features related to its intelligent S-Pen stylus. A click on the button on the side of the S-Pen when hovering over the Galaxy Note 3 brings up the Air Command mini-menu that offers navigation and app controls unique to the phablet.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date has been set as September 25, with the flexible display version available in October.

If this limited edition has the same camera and specifications, then I'm definitely buying this limited edition. Thought, if it doesn't has the same spects as the note 3, then adios límited edition. I really prefer what the phone is capable off doing in the "inside" than in the ouside, and that is because i really take care of my stuff... but maybe we are lucky and we get a super phablet (definitely will quick ass!).

I hate rumors because you can never depend on them to come true when the rumor predicts it will. I soooo hope this phone will be available in October. My Note has a severely cracked screen (thanks to my 3 year old; I still love him) so I NEED a new phone asap!!
