A Samsung executive has confirmed the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 could pack flexible display.
Lee Younghee, VP of Samsung’s mobile division, has confirmed Samsung is considering introducing a flexible display with the Galaxy Note 4 later this year.
However, he also added that the final design of the phone has yet to be set in stone, so that might not be the version that is launched for consumers.
There have been several rumours suggesting the Note 4 could pack a new three-sided flexible display when it is unveiled in September.
In fact, Samsung’s Senior VP of Product Strategy, Yoon Han-kil, said that the Note 4 would feature a “new form factor” earlier this year.
“Our ultimate goal is to make products that consumers really aspire to have. This is how we are trying to find a breakthrough in the stagnant premium market,” said Yoon.
If the Note 4 is based on Samsung’s own published patents, the handset could feature a three-sided display that curves around one side of the phone, offering quick glance notification information.
The slanted edge could also let you lock and unlock the device as well as scroll through on-screen content.
Basically, you shouldn’t expect the Note 4’s flexible display to resemble the LG G Flex or Korean exclusive Samsung Galaxy Round if the rumours are to be believed.
The actual patents for Samsung’s folded smartphone screen have been around for some time, but analysts believe that the Note 4 will be the first phone to first use the technology at a consumer level.
