Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Touted to Have Flexible Display
The majority of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 rumors have been connected in some way to the device’s announcement date – no new rumors had surfaced in past weeks about features or specs. However, Android Central’s new report taken from Korea IT Times has some information on what could be a game-changing spec for the second-generation phablet.
The report states that the Galaxy Note 2 will come with a flexible AMOLED display, something that few were expecting to see from any Samsung device in 2012. This technology has been showcased in previous tech expos, but as of now, is still deep in the development stage, thus the low expectations of seeing it implemented as early as this year.
It is believed that the flexible display would allow Samsung to come up with a phablet that has room for a larger, more powerful battery, while remaining thin enough for comfort. If the report is accurate, the Galaxy Note 2 will be the first-ever device to come with flexible display.
It’s hard to say how accurate the above rumor may turn out to be, but for the meantime, we’ll be taking this with a grain of salt – flexible display in 2012 does sound too good to be true. But we should know for sure if the speculated August 29 “Unpacked” event is indeed a showcase for the Galaxy Note 2.
Also expected on the device are a 5.5-inch screen (flexible or not, we don’t know yet), quad-core processor and an improved rear camera.
