New LG and Samsung smartphones with flexible displays to appear in September?
The report is scarce on details, but it suggests that Samsung will finally brings its three-sided display to the market (check the video below), while LG will, once again, court spec addicts with a flexible QHD display of 510 ppi pixel density (which calculates to about 5.7 inches by diagonal). Keep a bag of salt nearby for this, as fitting so many pixels on a bendable OLED panel sounds implausible, given that last year, the technology was only advanced enough to support 720p resolution. A quadruple leap in just a year sounds like a wild bar story, but then again, we're only spinning rumors at this point.
It isn't specified whether the rumored smartphones will continue the Galaxy Round and G Flex series. However, there's a possibility that Samsung intends to launch two versions of its Galaxy Note 4, one of them sporting a curved display. If you want our honest opinion, diversifying the Note series' flagship device by memory and screen curve sounds rather exotic - at least if Samsung is to announce and release them together. Until we see some flex-tastic leaks of the Note 4, we're betting on the flat, regular style we know and love.
Yesterday, we heard that the Note 4 will be heading to mass-production very soon for an IFA 2014 reveal in Berlin. So flexible display or not, a successor to the Galaxy Note 3 is a sure bet at this point.

Lol apparently no1 can take a joke without getting all butt hurt these days South Koreans aren't even short! ! The idea that there giving for a curved screen is pretty farfetched thus leading to the joke but O-well

Both companies have made a curved screen phone. Not so farfetched. I just think you should be careful when making comments about a race. Even if joking. That's all.

I'm not saying it's a bad idea to have a curved screen, but I just don't see anyway to use it and the the example there giving just does not make since, a phone like the g flex is one thing but to have the corners bent around the phone I'm not seeing a practical use for it I would much rather them work on improving screen visibility outside and battery life than wrapping the screen around the phone.

I don't think that it is racist comment but comment was rude for sure.

Useless feature!!! It's only been made because it can be done, not because it needs to be.
