Samsung launching flexible smartphone in October

Samsung had “officially” announced that their curved display first smartphone is being prepared. But, wait! Don’t start jumping unless you hear the complete news- the smartphone will be released in South Korean domestic market initially so as to know public’s reaction on the new type of smartphones.


During CES 2013 tech fair, the Korean maker revealed a 5.5 inch smartphone with curved display. The device was codenamed Samsung Youm. (see image above)

A samsung representative reported that the smartphone will have an OLED display which will NOT be “completely flexible”. It will be curved inside the handset’s case which will be as rigid as the one of any other similar device.

It is also being rumored that the first flexible Samsung Smartphone will be an upgrade of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet. To recall, Galaxy Note 3 boasts about a 5.7-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, 13 MP camera with 4K video recording support, 3 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of internal storage (with microSD card slot), LTE, NFC, IR blaster, microUSB 3.0, and all standards of WiFi.

There are currently two Note 3 variants, the I9005 based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC (quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU) and the I9000 underpinned by Samsung’s proprietary eight-core Exynos 5 Octa (quad-core 1.9 GHz Cortex A15 + quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex A7 and Mali T628 GPU). So, Korean company will have to use something of a later level for the processor to be upgraded curved Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
