Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours deny flexible display claims

Contrary to previous Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours, the Samsung Galaxy S3 follow-on will not feature a flexible and unbreakable display, latest reports have suggested.

Whilst recent Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours had suggested that the Korean handset manufacturer would introduce its fledgling flexible screen technologies with the arrival of the next-generation smartphone powerhouse, new reports have seemingly quashed such speculation, with insider sources suggesting such technologies still some way off making it to market.

Quoting unnamed industry sources, the Verge has suggested that “Flexible screens are still a while off,” refuting recent reports that the bendable displays will be “ready in early 2013.”

Having been tipped to launch aboard the Samsung Galaxy S4, the first flexible displays were last month said to be “in the last phase of development” with manufacturers already testing the revolutionary screen options with “a few customers.”

Samsung Galaxy S4 Rumours
With a number of Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours hinting at a Q1 arrival, recent reports have suggested that the as yet unconfirmed iPhone 5 rival will be officially unveiled during a dedicated launch event in the weeks following MWC 2012. A Samsung Galaxy S4 release date is expected to follow shortly after, reportedly heading to retailers in either March or April 2013.

Looking to capitalise on the success of the current Samsung Galaxy S3, a flurry of Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours have done the rounds in recent weeks suggesting everything from the device boasting an eight-core processor to the new 2GHz A15 quad-core CPU and a 1080p Full HD display.

Seemingly set to continue Samsung’s trend of increasingly large screen sizes, further Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours have hinted at the device making the jump to a new 5-inch display, up on the current 4.8-inch form factor.
