Samsung has already launched one flagship for 2014. It is expected to follow up with another high-end device by August or September. Its around this time when Samsung launches a new Galaxy Note phablet, this year its going to be the Galaxy Note 4. The company hasn’t offered many details about it as yet but an executive recently revealed that they’re considering a flexible display for the next Note flagship.
The possibility has already been claimed by many rumors in the past but that certainly doesn’t mean Samsung will stick with it. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal Samsung’s VP mobile division Lee Younghee told the scribe that a flexible display is being considered, though adding that Samsung is yet to make a final decision.
So there’s every possibility that the company might change its mind in the days to come and decide against a flexible display. It has already experimented with a device called the Galaxy Round, though that particular smartphone wasn’t meant for the entire market. Galaxy Note 4 will be a flagship product and Samsung will need to be absolutely certain about how a switch might impact sales.
There are rumors that this time around the Galaxy Note 4 is going to be water and dust resistant as well. That might prove to be a bit difficult since it would have to seal off the device completely which leaving space for a S Pen, which is a staple on the flagship phablet.
