A Korean media rekindles rumors of a Galaxy Note 3 with flexible display, claims it's coming next month

Despite the fact that the SamsungGalaxy Note 3 ranked among the biggest product launches in the mobilespace this year, with all that's been going on, Sammy's phablet hasbeen pretty much forced into the back of our minds. As you can guess, that's amarketing division's worst nightmare, so it does make sense that themedia should start drumming about it once again. Fortunately for allinvolved, in this particular case we don't mind at all.

Whydon't we mind? Well, it's because of a new rumor that has shot theGalaxy Note 3 right at the top of our consciousness once again – alimited edition Galaxy Note 3 with a flexible display may finallyfind the key out of science fiction aficionados' imagination andbecome reality as soon as next month!

Sure,this certainly isn't the first time we hear about the tech, andSamsung'sinvolvement in it. There was even apretty persistent theory back in the days before the Note 3'sunveiling, claiming that the phone will come in three variants. Thoseincluded the Note 3 that we know, alower cost LCD variant of it, and a special edition with aflexible display. Whether you're a believer in the aforementionedtheory or not is entirely up to you, as at this point – it reallyfeels like it can go either way.

A rumor for sure. But will be good if it actually happens. Will result in many more innovative uses and functions.

The Note 3 is like the iPhone 5s, just a short bus stop until the real deal (Note 4 and iPhone 6) comes ut, so I doubt this!

So the note 3 might still get the flexible display. I almost guarentee that you wont be able the bend the device which makes putting a flexible display in it completely pointless!!

No it doesn't. It makes the screen much harder to crack if you drop it.

Wrong, the screen doesn't crack, but the glass does.

Yes we won't be able to bend the device, still they are putting a flexible display, who knows it might happen in the future. Also if phone falls down then this screen helps to adjust according to surfaces in some sorts so that it resists itself from damaging more than today's screens.

Sweet. The plastic back *and* front. Good job Sammy. "Customers complaining about plastic? You get MORE PLASTIC." Lol. Lets break this down. Plastic screens will scratch, won't crack. Glass screens will crack, harder to scratch. If the Note 3 is the same quality construction as the previous gen, I don't think a plastic screen is necessary. Mine was dropped several times, various heights. Body glove slim case. And held up like a champ. I assume this plastic screen may be more for marketing but who knows.

Even though I think bendable displays for smart phones are going to be pretty useless, they do have potential so I'm going to wait and see. Plus they are STRONGER than current screens. Here's just one example: http://www.oled-info.com/samsung-youm
