Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to have a version with curved display, and a regular version for mass markets
New rumors coming out of South Korea have it that Samsung is readying a Galaxy Note 4 with a curved AMOLED screen. Of course, it’s not the first time we’re hearing about this, but now the information reportedly comes from “an executive of a local Samsung partner.”

It’s said that the Note 4 with curved display is made for “niche markets”, while a Galaxy Note 4 with a regular, flat screen will be widely available around the world. Both should be officially unveiled at IFA 2014 in Berlin, between September 5 and September 10. Earlier this week, we heard that the new Galaxy Note would sport a Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) display, and we expect both the curved and the regular version to offer this pixel resolution. Other features that the new flagship device will allegedly offer include a 16MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, and a Snapdragon 805, or Exynos 5433 processor (the latter hasn’t been announced yet).

remains to be seen just how big the Note 4 will be. The Note 3 (pictured on the right) sports a 5.7-inch display, and we shouldn’t be surprised to see the new model having a slightly larger screen - although, according to a previous rumor, the display size won't be changed. Alongside the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung may also present a “Google Glass rival” at IFA 2014. This could be called Samsung Gear Glass

Unfortunately, for now we can’t really confirm the info presented above, so we will just have to wait for September to come and see how things go.

I'm pretty sure it'll happen on note 4..
Because samsung executive itself said note 4 will have new form factor...

I have nothing to say about this because we're still too far away from its release and I can wait to see what the Note 4 will be. I admit that I'm not as excited about the Note 4 as I was about the Note 3..........but that might change once we get close to its debut

Correct me if i'm wrong, but wouldn't a curved display make it harder to make protective cases?

Not necessarily. I think manufacturers can easily make cases of any shape and dimensions, molded to fit any device.

yes but the sides would have to be open. Drop it on the side...like most devices tend to do and cracking is even more of an issue

If it's using a bendable display, cracking is very unlikely.

The glass will be easy to crack like a normal phone but the display will be near impossible to break through normal use.

Not if it's the bendable display tech Samsung has shown.

If I'm right the curved version will have different resolution...
Because the display will be broader than usual...
Ratio should be more close to 4:3...

Slow news day for PA today. Perhaps they're also excited and waiting for the WC to kickoff. :D

The S5 has one of the best most accurate displays available. The Note 4 will likely be even better. I hope it is AMOLED.

Another cheap implementation using bendable plastic along with plastic dustbin materials

Use "Sapphire" glass instead. Looks much classier and prestigious.

Try some premium metal and glass...

Off topic, comparing this item which is used for sensation.

Not an item to or for presentation

I'm not one of those who act like 16 year girl...to show off my phone...i rather buy to use it...
Also display material has nothing to do with presentation....

There's nothing to show about

We buy a product to look and feel nice

People who drive prestige cars like BMW, Mercedes, Jaguar, don't show off, but buy it cause it looks and feels nice.

It's called" quality".

I agree. I have had many cars, and the 02 e46 m3 has by far been one of 'prestige' to own. It is certainly a look at me, feel good car, and well it is just a blast to drive.

I feel the same way about a phone, blast to own (drive), fun to show off because people ask about it, and feels good all in all.

I pull out my nokia, they here me say cortana and instantly ears are raised. Or my camera when taking pics, instantly most of the time it is "Oh wow it takes better pictures what do you have..". And they like the way it looks and feels. Couple that with shuaibhere notion of buying it to use it. I use it tons more than my note 3 (for various reasons). So win win imo.

The Exynos version of the note 3 has UI lag.

Useless pathetic A7 cores that kicks in when doing light multitasking, instead of those A15 kicking in.
If A7 was not been used, ui would render twice the transition.
