Galaxy Note III to have the first plastic OLED screen
Yet another interesting rumor about the Samsung Galaxy Note III has hit us today. We've already heard that Samsung might be planning a 6" display for its new phablet, but SamMobile is now adding a whole new perspective to the story. According to the source, Samsung is to equip the Note III with the world's first plastic OLED screen. The plastic substrate will allow to company to make the whole device significantly thinner and lighter than the current handsets with glass substrate.

Samsung fan-site, SamMobile, believes that thanks to this, the Note III will have a thickness of just 0.31" (8mm). In contrast, the Note II is 0.37" (9.4mm) thick. An additional bonus is said to be the presence of a bigger battery, due to the thinner display panel, though that seems a bit strange, since if Samsung decides to fill the newly freed space with more battery, then how is the device itself going to be that much thinner? We wouldn't be surprised if Samsung goes for some kind of middle ground, with a slightly thinner Note III and a slightly bigger battery.

Another characteristic of this new plastic OLED would be that it's very, very tough. This kind of display is actually being called "unbreakable" by some, though we all know that there are few things in this world that our clumsy hands cannot break.

Now for the bad news. The unofficial sources report that the Galaxy Note III will be introduced at IFA 2013, which takes place from September 6 to September 13, with launch scheduled for Q4. Having in mind the Note II's pre-IFA 2012 launch last year, this bit of information does sound somewhat plausible.
