Samsung Galaxy S4 Early Mockup

It’s no secret that Samsung has been working on flexible OLEDs for a while now. The speculation even reached a point where a number of analysts thought that Samsung was ready for prime time mass production and would launch it with the Galaxy S4 (if that’s what it’s going to be called) some time next year. However, a source who wished to remain anonymous told the folks over the The Verge that it will still be a while until we start seeing flexible screens on any consumer products. Rumor has it that it has more to do with the unbreakable part that the flexible part. Still, Gorilla Glass 2 isn’t bad, and if history is to be trusted, Samsung will likely go for Corning’s scratch and break resistant glass to protect it’s soon to be latest and greatest smartphone.

One rumor that’s looking more likely to come true is that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will feature a 5 inch, 1920 x 1080 FHD screen. Yes, that’s the same resolution as that 60 inch Smart LED TV you can only dream of having in your living room. This one’s a no brainer, as Samsung will simply be keeping up with the market that is already seeing phones like the HTC Droid DNA, ZTE Nubia Z5 and Huawei Ascend D2, all of which sport 1080 screens, a quad core processor and Jelly Bean 4.1 out of the box.

I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
