Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs tipped to include ‘unbreakable’ display

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs tipped to include ‘unbreakable’ displayHey guy. Remember Back in June last year there was lots of talk of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 supposedly rocking an “unbreakable” display?

Well, obviously that didn’t happen, but you’ll never guess what; the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is tipped to rock – that’s right – a display that be unbreakable.

That’s the story according to South Korean site asiae, which bawls: “Samsung unbreakable (unbreakable and frozen breaker block) mounted display is scheduled to be released.”

The Google Chrome translation (ahem) continues: “The most important feature of the Galaxy Note 3 does not break.”

As for the display size, we’re told: “Expected A 5-inch screen size of the Galaxy Note 3 to 6 inches are expected as early as the late.”

Uhm, clearly not the greatest translation (where’s socialjeebus when you need him?), but you get the idea; Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with a large unbreakable display.

Incidentally, the rumour mill can’t quite decide on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3’s display size. Some are sticking with 6.3in, while others propose 5.9in.

The first Samsung Galaxy Note was of course 5.3in, followed by the 5.5in Samsung Galaxy Note 2. With the Samsung Galaxy S4 weighing in at a full 5in, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will inevitably be bigger than its predecessor.

That's the problem with google translate.

Anyway the article says that the screens will be made from plastic rather than glass (hence the unbreakable part). The Note 3 will also be lighter and thinner as a result of the switch.

It will have a plastic Full HD OLED screen and the screen will be between 5.5 and 6.5 inches.

LG are also in the process of making their own device with a plastic Full HD OLED screen.

It's expected in October of this year.

The article also, quite interestingly, suggests that the manufacturers are keen to shift the focus away from merely endlessly increasing specs and believe that the "unbreakable" aspect will be a killer app in the new 'hardware paradigm' (their words not mine).

They expect it to be announced in September at the IFA in Berlin.
