thats cool having the flexable screen so you can get a bgger battery without sacroficing thickness cause the thing needs to be as thin as possable so it can be pracical device that has a shot of being carried around in pockets. I hope that the screen is a super amoled hd plus because i read a while back that the flexable screens although nice where not of hd quility or atlies where not as good as the normal one. wich if true i doubt they will have the flexable lcd. I disagree with calling it flexable screen though because concidering that the outer toch panle has to be glass the flexable part has no value because besides the outer touch panal being glass i would bet that the glass and plastic lcd will be bonded together.

Oh and not to sound like a broken record but they better watch out because apple might come out with a flexable screen in a couple years and sue samsung for copprights for future ideas

@Victor
"This would allow for a larger batter without the device being thicker."

when you copy stuff from GSMArena, at least get your spellings right

I think the main problem with original Note is that it had 16:10 aspect ratio and felt too clumsy when used as a phone (the buyers wanted doubled functionality as phone and tablet). This could be corrected with slimmer aspect ratio like 16:9 (1280x720 instead 1280x800), and I think it will be the case - the screen could be bigger (5,5 inch) and it would gain more functionality for using it as a phone. It would however reduce the pixel denisty but of course, I expect full RGB matrix AMOLED. That would be the killer device then.

16:10 will make such big phone slim enough for easy hold

Clumsy is all based on the user. I own the Note and it is not clumsy to me. However, I can see it with small handed people. Something else that is missed, is the number of people using Bluetooth so size really doesn't matter.

So, what's the number of people using BT in comparison to regular on-ear use? If it's above 70%, I'll accept that size doesn't matter ;-)

Just about everyone I work with and see use Bluetooth. I only use Bluetooth in the car.

And I see almost no one using BT. So seeing by an individual is not something we can count on when we predict the way of use... ;-)

Let's figure out how Apple can sue now Samsung due to its Unbreakable Plane. LOL :P

I was holding to get the Samsung Galaxy S III, but I might just wait a little bit longer just to see which one I like the most, GS III or Note II :D

What about the specs: hope it has 2gb ram, 3000mah battery,
A15 Quad-core or a A9 QC 4412 clocked at 2.0ghz, carbon fibre or Kevlar or
ceramic body! Edge2Edge concept design, with no ugly curves.......

We may need flexible screen that much, nice stuff though. But at least bring on the RGB HD AMOLED

Apple has a patent for the name unbreakable pane

so it seems the panel is going to be CURVACIOUS rather than bendable as websites r reporting...describing a tinge of curve with the word bendable seems pure exaggeration to me... foldable displays hope to see u get commercialized in somewhere 2017 or beyond...

Sadly, with the timing.. I'm fearing that the processor in this phone will once again differ between US and European versions. I hope not, but I'm afraid it will be the case.

I'm also not expecting an RGB AMOLED screen, though that would be nice as well. I'm thinking that the Note 3 will implement higher resolution and RGB.

I hope I'm wrong.. even without RGB and exynos.. I will be VERY tempted to get this as soon as it hits Verizon!

So they're making their phones thinner when they have known problems with their cheap build quality... doesn't seem like the right move here.
