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.
