Samsung Galaxy Note 3, HTC Butterfly 2 and LG Optimus G2 prepped for Q3 launch to spar with the iPhone 5S

0. phoneArena 09 May 2013, 05:36 posted on

According to the perennial "industry sources," major smartphone vendors are prepping flagship handsets for Q3 - end of summer/beginning of fall period. While that's nothing new, it is reassuring to hear another source confirm that Samsung, LG and HTC are working on the announcements of their next best things...

No, they will reduce bezels, keeping the device size same. But after that I don't see much scope of screen size increase.

What is the use of flexible displays for a phone when neither the frame nor the battery can be flexed??

So they could have a fold-out screen? Then they actually could put a 20.99" screen on the Note!

exactly my point. but i guess they can change the shape of the phone like the original nexus and the curved screen can come into effect at lower cost. not sure why they are trying to implement flexible screen. maybe its cheaper for them

they have introduced flexible battery already. And if you have watched CES 2013, no frame needed for the flexible screen. Furthermore, flexible display doesn't necessarily mean flexible like paper, simply "flexible" like one of nokia's concept.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3, HTC Butterfly 2, Sony Honami, Nokia Lumia 950/EOS (whatever it is called), LG Optimus G*, etc, etc... VS iPhone 5S?

Looks like iPhone 5S's gonna rank last (if it is just another incremental upgrade) LOL.

you can increase the size by .2inch by reducing bezels but you cant increase by .5inch by reducing bezels!

Out of all those phones mentioned the Samsung Galaxy Note III is the only one I am getting. I STILL can't imagine how ULTRA SEXY a 5.99" 1080p Full HD Super AMOLED screen will look like.

We all know the Note III will have almost no bezel making it look like the phone is just pure screen and nothing else!

Guys I think I have a problem... I am dreaming of the Samsung Galaxy Note III at night now. lol

My wife is going to get my rooted HTC Droid DNA while I get the incredible Samsung Galaxy Note III. Is it Q3 of 2013 yet? :-(

Your not alone man. The Note 3 will be my first phone I pay full price for. After having this Note 2 since November it's like my view on all other phones now is warped. I see someone with a smaller phone and I just think aw good for you lol.

Yeah, i'm completely spoiled by screen real estate. I did play with the Xperia Z and the S4, but I'm spoiled by the sheer size of my note 2's screen. I really hope the future nexus will have some phablet-esque screen size lol. I would be content with 5.2 inches.

Finally. Android talking the fight right towards apple.
All that's needed now is some intuitive ads like what Samsung does.
