There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming phablet by Samsung this year, just yesterday we heard that Galaxy Note 3 would not feature a flexible display due to alleged supply constraints and neither would it feature a metal design.
To put some closure on the matter, Samsung’s Mobile Chief, JK Shin, while talking to reporters answered question regarding the adoption of “unbreakable displays” or flexible displays for the Galaxy Note 3. He has said that “more time will be needed” for the production of flexible displays, which directly coincides with a previous report that production of flexible displays, have been delayed due to quality problem.
Shin didn’t comment on the design of Galaxy Note 3, but the report by Korea Times further goes on to state that “the Suwon, Gyeonggi Province-based outfit is developing the Note3 with a 5.9-inch OLED display” and that “the device will debut at this year’s IFA trade fair in Berlin, Germany” according to some officials.
On the other side of the news, it looks like the Google version of Galaxy S4 won’t impact Samsung’s offering as according to Shin, the Galaxy S4 will hit the 10 million sales mark next week:
We are confident that we will pass more than 10 million sales of the S4 next week. It is selling much faster than the previous model S3,” Samsung Electronics co-CEO Shin Jong-kyun told reporters at an industry forum in Seoul, Thursday.
Just for the record, Galaxy S3 topped the 10 million mark in 50 days while Galaxy S4 is poised to become the fastest selling smartphone by reaching the same mark within a month. Are you looking forward to get your hands on Galaxy S4 or are you waiting for the release of Galaxy Note 3?
