Flexible phone one of three Samsung Galaxy Note 3 prototypes

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 currently features a trio of different forms, latest reports have suggested, with three varying handset prototypes reportedly including a flexible screen option.

With Samsung seemingly undecided on the handset’s final form, repeated Samsung tipster SamMobile has cited an unnamed Samsung insider as claiming three Galaxy Note 3 prototypes are currently being considered, all of which feature dramatically different designs.

Taking anything from a slight shuffle to a dramatic step away from the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 design, the three claimed Samsung Galaxy Note 3 prototypes are said to be currently under consideration from the handset’s manufacturer, with the first taking design hints from the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Offering up more unique aesthetical options, the further Samsung Galaxy Note 3 prototypes are said to play host to a “completely different design” as well as a “flexible display design.”

Long the thing of much rumour and speculation, Samsung has long been known to be working on flexible screen phone concepts, with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 repeatedly tipped as the first device to sport this futuristic, unbreakable technology.

Potentially forcing its South Korean sibling to show its hand earlier than it might have liked, a flexible screen Note 3 could be in response to LG’s promise to launch a flexible screen phone before the end of the year.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Rumours
With a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date widely expected to follow an IFA 2013 unveiling later this summer, it has been claimed that the stylus toting smartphone turn tablet hybrid will make a jump in screen size, with a 5.99-inch display repeatedly mooted.

Sure to take hints from its smartphone siblings, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has been rumoured to feature the CES unveiled Exynos 5 eight-core processor, while a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera has also been tipped for inclusion.
