Report: Samsung GALAXY Note III to be equipped with a 6 inch non-flexible AMOLED display
Despite rumors that Samsung is considering a flexible screen for the Samsung GALAXY Note III, an investment firm in South Korea says that the display on the next version of Samsung's phablet will be made of non-flexible glass. Korea Investment & Securities Co. forecasts that the device will feature a 6 inch AMOLED screen. Earlier speculation called for the Samsung GALAXY Note III to sport a 5.99 inch display.

In a report to clients, the investment house said that it does not believe that Samsung is ready to mass produce flexible OLED screens, and that the Korean based manufacturer needs more time to "adopt it for the major models." According to one report, Samsung Display plans on producing the flexible OLED screens at its A2 P3 line where only 24,000 screens can be currently produced a month. That will not even come close to the numbers that Samsung would need to fulfill demand.

Fellow Korean manufacturer LG had previously announced that it would deliver a handset with a flexible display before the end of the year, but it too is said to be having problems mass-producing the part. As a result, speculation is that LG will delay the launch of a smartphone with a flexible display. Both Samsung and LG use different technologies in producing their flexible screens.

The Samsung GALAXY Note III could be unveiled at IFA 2013 in Berlin and is expected to be launched in the third quarter of this year.

It has to be edge to edge if that is the screen size. I think Sammy is not fully ready with its Flexible but who knows what they are cooking :)

5.9(9) is effectively 6 inches. With a screen resolution of 1080p, a 5.9 (even 6.0) inch screen will probably fit inside of the present Note II chassis footprint. Add in the processor, camera, S-pen, etc. upgrades, and the Note III becomes compelling. Guess what I will be buying when it becomes available on VZW?

I want to get a note 3 but 6" is way too big for me even with a small bezel, I just can't see how I could fit it in my pocket. I think it would be cool if samsung made a galaxy note with flexible screen so that you can roll it up like rolling a piece of paper around a pen.

Just put it in your back pocket. No biggie.

It seems some people think that with a flexible screen, you would be able to bend the phone in anyway. Let us not forget about the internals of the phone. lol Overall, I think the flexible screen would be more for having a tougher resistance to cracking and whatnot.

6" Display?! isn't it excessive? So could my 7.0" tab plus be the Note 5? :-p

I really hope it'll be 6" I mean, how long is the "Note" line going to go? I dont want them to move up little by little. 6" is good, then they can move to 6.3", 6.5 ( or whatever ), then finish it with a 6.9" model for all I care; But if theyre feeling really strongly about it, just make the final design 7". As long as its not as wide as a tablet, but as tall, I believe itll be just fine. I mean come, width is what truly makes a phone hard to hold in the hand. As long as it doesnt get too wide, just wide enough to fit in the hand youre good. Unless you have small hands and then the original note wasnt going to work for you anyway. Go 6" Note 3, GO!!!

If the panel, mainboard and battery are not flexible can we still bend the phone? Or do the manufactures also have to make the other parts flexible?
