Samsung Working on a 6-inch Galaxy Note 3 without a Flexible Display?

Finally, we have some rumors that aren’t regarding Google I/O. This one is regarding Samsung and their Galaxy Note 3 that should be announced this fall. Samsung is expected to announce a 6-inch Galaxy Note 3 around IFA, which takes place Late August to Early September. And according to oled-display.net, Samsung is ready to bring a 6-inch AMOLED display to market. That’s right Samsung will still be sticking with the AMOLED display over an LCD.

Additionally, according to Sammobile, Samsung had tried to use a flexible display on the Galaxy Note 3. But unfortunately, they were unable to get it into mass production right on time. And LG is having the same problem with flexible displays. Many of you may know that LG is Samsung’s biggest rival in display tech. Now the flexible display line from each OEM has been delayed.

Here’s what oled-display.net had to say:

Samsung Display plans to produce flexible AMOLED Panels at the A2 P3 line.
This production line has a monthly capacity for such 24.000 sheets based on 5.5G.
That is not enough capacity to make a flagship product with a flexible display like the Galaxy Note3.
Samsung Display has to expand the capacity for the flexible OLED line. Youm is the brand for the Samsung FOLED technology
The same hard facts are also for LG-Display. LG-Display has a monthly capacity of 8.000 sheets based on a 4G production line.

So it looks like we’re going to get the same display (perhaps  slightly updated and with more pixels) as the Galaxy S4 display. Now I don’t particularly like AMOLED displays, but the 1080p AMOLED display on the Galaxy S4 does look pretty good. But the one major disadvantage it still has is it’s pretty hard to see outside.

How many of you are waiting to upgrade to the Galaxy Note 3 this fall? Let us know in the comments down below.

    Samsung definitely has been working with three prototype’s I am sure they would love to get that flexible display out to it’s customers. Without question I would love that flexible display myself but if they can’t then they can’t. Regardless of flex display or unbreakable display I will be purchasing the Galaxy Note 3 on day one of launch for T-mobile. It’s not about the flexible display it’s about the overall product presented and based on the current Note 2 I am 100% sure NOTHING after September 2013 until July 2014 will be better than the Galaxy Note 3.
