5.99 inch AMOLED flexible display coming with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3?
Last month, we told you that Samsung was looking at three different versions of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and one of those units was equipped with a flexible screen. Despite previous denials by the Korean OEM, speculation out of South Korea has Samsung using a 5.99 inch flexible AMOLED display on the next iteration of its phablet.

Other rumors have Samsung using both AMOLED and LCD panels with the one used on each unit depending on the market it is offered in. A published report on Friday says that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with a flexible display will start production in August and launch in September, possibly during the IFA 2013 show in Berlin.

According to the report, Samsung decided to go with the flexible display for the Samsung Galaxy Note III after demand started fading for the Samsung Galaxy S4. After sales of the handset got off to a great start with 10 million units purchased in the first month, demand for the flagship Android model has apparently dried up. Additionally, reports that LG is close to releasing a phone with a flexible display might have given Samsung the incentive to use a flexible panel for the next generation of its phablet.
