Despite rumors that Samsung is considering a flexible screen for the Samsung GALAXY Note III, an investment firm in South Korea says that the display on the next version of Samsung's phablet will be made of non-flexible glass; Korea Investment & Securities Co. forecasts that the device will feature a 6 inch AMOLED screen. Earlier speculation called for the Samsung GALAXY Note III to sport a 5.99 inch display...

It has to be edge to edge if that is the screen size. I think Sammy is not fully ready with its Flexible but who knows what they are cooking :)

5.9(9) is effectively 6 inches. With a screen resolution of 1080p, a 5.9 (even 6.0) inch screen will probably fit inside of the present Note II chassis footprint.
Add in the processor, camera, S-pen, etc. upgrades, and the Note III becomes compelling. Guess what I will be buying when it becomes available on VZW?

It doesn't need to be a to phone..to be a phone killer....
note series has proved it's worth...

Why would one buy a phone that's not a phone but is a "phone killer" without being a real phone when one can buy a tablet or an ultrabook?!

It is a phone and a mini tablet..
Just try and you will find the goodies of technology. Dont stick with your iphone or ipad

I use a phone for communicating and a Windows powered laptop for productivity, office and some media.
I have no use of a huge phone/tiny tablet.

Ok. We just want all-in-one device.epic

A good all-in-one device is a laptop with GSM sim card and BT headset.
A bad device is Note.

Might as well buy a nokia 3310 and a laptop, if that's your point. F. Y. I since the note series have large screens we can actually use tablet optimized apps pretty well.

Note can't do anything my average size phone can't (except pen realated apps); but my phone has an advantage: it fits in my palm and in my pockets.
When I need to see a presentation, a video, a worksheet 5-7" screens are way too small so I take out my 13" laptop.
When I need to write an email no software can compare to a Vaio or a Thinkpad physical keyboard.
Taking pictures with tablets (even tiny ones) is stupid; I rather do it with my average size phone.
An app designed to fit on a 4" 480x800 screen looks like sh*t on 6" (tiny tablets like Note/Mega can't run tablet written apps).
Android can't compare to Windows; ARM can't compare to Intel's i5/7; Samsung memory can't compare to Corsair and whatever videocard has a tiny tablet, it can only run games with 5-10 years ago quality.
When I talk to my phone I don't look stupid and I have no problem holding it in my hand like I would with a tiny tablet.
For my business calls I have a feature phone too.
So, why should I use a stupid hybrid that has the worst from both worlds?

I think the Note 3 will be my next upgrade from the Droid DNA.

I want to get a note 3 but 6" is way too big for me even with a small bezel, I just can't see how I could fit it in my pocket. I think it would be cool if samsung made a galaxy note with flexible screen so that you can roll it up like rolling a piece of paper around a pen.

Just put it in your back pocket. No biggie.
