Samsung Galaxy Note II said to have flexible, thinner 5.5-inch AMOLED display

A flexible display however doesn’t mean a flexible or bendable phone. It takes a lot more than just the display to have the whole device bend, but some kind of a curve a la Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S is a possibility.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will use an Unbreakable Plane (UBP) and a plastic substrate that will make it 0.4mm thinner. This would allow for a larger batter without the device being thicker.
With such features the Galaxy Note 2 will definitely capture a lot of hearts at the IFA show in Berlin where we hope to see it. Stay tuned.

thats cool having the flexable screen so you can get a bgger battery without sacroficing thickness cause the thing needs to be as thin as possable so it can be pracical device that has a shot of being carried around in pockets. I hope that the screen is a super amoled hd plus because i read a while back that the flexable screens although nice where not of hd quility or atlies where not as good as the normal one. wich if true i doubt they will have the flexable lcd. I disagree with calling it flexable screen though because concidering that the outer toch panle has to be glass the flexable part has no value because besides the outer touch panal being glass i would bet that the glass and plastic lcd will be bonded together. Oh and not to sound like a broken record but they better watch out because apple might come out with a flexable screen in a couple years and sue samsung for copprights for future ideas

@Victor "This would allow for a larger batter without the device being thicker." when you copy stuff from GSMArena, at least get your spellings right

I think the main problem with original Note is that it had 16:10 aspect ratio and felt too clumsy when used as a phone (the buyers wanted doubled functionality as phone and tablet). This could be corrected with slimmer aspect ratio like 16:9 (1280x720 instead 1280x800), and I think it will be the case - the screen could be bigger (5,5 inch) and it would gain more functionality for using it as a phone. It would however reduce the pixel denisty but of course, I expect full RGB matrix AMOLED. That would be the killer device then.

Clumsy is all based on the user. I own the Note and it is not clumsy to me. However, I can see it with small handed people. Something else that is missed, is the number of people using Bluetooth so size really doesn't matter.

Let's figure out how Apple can sue now Samsung due to its Unbreakable Plane. LOL :P I was holding to get the Samsung Galaxy S III, but I might just wait a little bit longer just to see which one I like the most, GS III or Note II :D
