According to a South Korean newspaper called MK News, Samsung is planning on putting flexible displays into production this year – possibly even in November – in preparation for the release of an “advanced” version of the Galaxy Note 2.
The displays will be AMOLED and, instead of glass, will use a flexible yet strong plastic material for protection, reducing the weight of the phone significantly. It’s unlikely that the display itself will be bend-able but it will likely be thinner which could result in a Galaxy Note 2 with a significantly slimmer profile.
Samsung says they won’t be producing “truly” flexible displays until 2014, so take this rumor with a grain of salt. Certainly we’d love to see the kind of displays Samsung premiered at CES in 2011, but we don’t want to get our hopes up too much
