Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 both tipped to use flexible screen

Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 both tipped to use flexible screen
While the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is rumored to employ a flexible three sided Youm screen, there is talk about Samsung building a new factory for the sole purpose of manufacturing more flexible screens. The current rumor is that Sammy will start offering bendable screens in earnest starting with the Samsung Galaxy S6. That would be next year's version of the Korean manufacturer's flagship model. The new factory will be up and running by November or December of this year, in plenty of time to produce flexible screens for the Galaxy S6.

Samsung also plans on offering a similar type of flexible screen for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. If this all comes to fruition, we can expect to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 all offer flexible screens.

Besides the changes to the screens, all three models are supposed to feature some new innovative designs. As it is, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is rumored to have a new form factor in addition to sporting the three-sided flexible Youm glass. It sure sounds like some major design changes are coming to two of Samsung's most popular devices.

They will put new build material that Samsung develop. Not youm as the tech media mislead you. The tech media is always wrong( or iServing) y. Youm is not for S-Pen scratching. NOT CHEAP ALUMINUN, though.

iBS The tech media is wrong as always. And mislead you. The "new form factor" of Note 4 will come because of the new material that Samsung develop. Not "youm". Why would Note 4 have soft youm for the S Pen?

You are right that this my comment was not for you. Don't know how IT WAS REPLACED with this. I wrote, that we the normal ppl, are not so "trendy" and "fashion adicted" like you iboys, and Tim Cook. But this my comment was removed.

Yup. No "mental" And should never go for the cheap ALUMINUM . The worst material EVER. I guess the tech media are wrong as always. The "new form factor" will come mostly because of the new material that Samsung develop. Note 4 with S pen doesn't need youm much .

The cheap ALUMINUM= Easy to dent, hard to replace, bad signal, not good for holding in hand and in the pocket, no wireless charging, hard to make swappable battery, risk for the life when shortcut.......... Besides Samsung develop new material .

Speaking about the temperatures, that stupid Premium material gets so hot that I could make half boiled coffee out of it.

Uhm, since most chips are moving over to A50-series in Q4 2014 and Q1 2015 Im pretty sure its safe to say flagships will be 64-bit next year.
