Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 both tipped to use flexible screen
While the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is rumored to employ a flexible three sided Youm screen, there is talk about Samsung building a new factory for the sole purpose of manufacturing more flexible screens. The current rumor is that Sammy will start offering bendable screens in earnest starting with the Samsung Galaxy S6. That would be next year's version of the Korean manufacturer's flagship model. The new factory will be up and running by November or December of this year, in plenty of time to produce flexible screens for the Galaxy S6.

Samsung also plans on offering a similar type of flexible screen for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. If this all comes to fruition, we can expect to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 all offer flexible screens.

Besides the changes to the screens, all three models are supposed to feature some new innovative designs. As it is, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is rumored to have a new form factor in addition to sporting the three-sided flexible Youm glass. It sure sounds like some major design changes are coming to two of Samsung's most popular devices.

They will put new build material that Samsung develop. Not youm as the tech media mislead you. The tech media is always wrong( or iServing) y. Youm is not for S-Pen scratching.

NOT CHEAP ALUMINUN, though.

iBS
The tech media is wrong as always. And mislead you.
The "new form factor" of Note 4 will come because of the new material that Samsung develop. Not "youm". Why would Note 4 have soft youm for the S Pen?

You are right that this my comment was not for you.
Don't know how IT WAS REPLACED with this.

I wrote, that we the normal ppl, are not so "trendy" and "fashion adicted" like you iboys, and Tim Cook.
But this my comment was removed.

Yup. No "mental"
And should never go for the cheap ALUMINUM . The worst material EVER.
I guess the tech media are wrong as always.
The "new form factor" will come mostly because of the new material that Samsung develop. Note 4 with S pen doesn't need youm much .

The cheap ALUMINUM= Easy to dent, hard to replace, bad signal, not good for holding in hand and in the pocket, no wireless charging, hard to make swappable battery, risk for the life when shortcut..........
Besides Samsung develop new material .

Uhm, since most chips are moving over to A50-series in Q4 2014 and Q1 2015 Im pretty sure its safe to say flagships will be 64-bit next year.

I wont believe all these rumour. I heard since last year Galaxy Note 3 is going to use flexible display. But it not happened. Then S5 also same. It seems Note 4 will still using improve display from S5.

There is a difference between"flexible" and "curved" screens.....i think both phones will have curved screens.

i think sammy will hold on technology until and unless they face serious competition from other android OEMs in terms of sales.

Tomorrow there will be a new news in phonearena about purchasing of a new factory by apple to built flexible displays which will bend only in your dreams :-)

Wrong.
The new news in phonearena will be about purchasing of a new factory by apple for making "sapphire" , "gold" "jewelry" , "luxury bra and pants" with Apple logo on it.
Forget the technology , Apple are far from that.

Or "How much would you pay to have lunch with Tim Cook?" Or dinner?

Galaxy Note 5?? Its too far away to say anything about the phablet. Though you said it might feature three sided display but I think Samsung would come with another device having three-sided display rather than infusing it in Note 5. anyways thegalaxynote5.com give more information about Note 5.
