Samsung had been involved with a number of OLED development efforts in the last few years. Last year, Samsung joined Corning to produce tough OLED screens; earlier this year, Samsung presented flexible OLED display, named Youm. Now, rumor is that Samsung‘s next-generation phablet, Galaxy Note III is going to be the world’s first device to have plastic OLED display in order to make the screen more robust and less prone to crack when dropped.
According to SamMobile blog, the first-ever plastic-lined OLED display, to be used in Galaxy Note III, will be extremely lightweight and thinner than traditional screens. The tablet-phone hybrid is expected to be revealed at IFA 2013 in August. It has been mentioned that Galaxy Note III will be released sometime in Q4, 2013. However, an unconfirmed source has mentioned that the Galaxy Note III will debut in Berlin in September.
As per the specifications revealed by SamMobile, the Galaxy Note III will run on Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean). The device will have a thickness of 8 mm and will come with a 5.9-inch screen with an eight-core Exynos 5 Octa processor, 2GB RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a bigger battery.
