i guess we can really hope to see something like this in SGS IV or SGS V

S IV = 4, so probably not. It's more than likely we will see this on a Galaxy S6 for 2015 at the very earliest, by then the S Series will have been replaced by the F series, F=flexible.

I cant wait to see what new ideas comes from this.

What would be really amazing is a flexible screen that could become rigid on demand. For example you can bend it at any place and have that place become rigid like a hinge. Imagine bending your tablet to form like a laptop and it stays in that position until you make it limp again, all effortlessly.
Well that's my flexible dream anyway.

They better make flexible oled screens with high res and brightness

Thin, Flexible Screens and High Resolution Brightness, Like the brightness you'll notice on the NOTE 3. Wow,can't wait for this SAMSUNG! Wooo. Another Revolutionary device made by Samsung! We can't wait to buy this and imagine that you'll have a Flexible Screen from Samsung. I hope Samsung S5 will have a version of this too aside from S5 Active, or S5 Zoom. Come on Sammy, shut up and take my money! Release it ASAP!:)
