Samsung preps Galaxy Note 3 with flexible OLED, S5 with metal housing
Samsung has reportedly confirmed plans to build a special-edition <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294664==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/05/phone.display.stretches.yet.again/" rel='nofollow'>Galaxy Note 3</a> handset outfitted with a flexible OLED display, while separate reports point to an all-metal Galaxy S 5. Although numerous demonstrations have showed the elasticity of plastic OLED panels bent into curved shapes, the technology is instead expected to be highlighted as nearly unbreakable in a Note 3 with an otherwise rigid construction. <br />
<br />
The feature was allegedly confirmed by a Samsung spokesman, according to a <A href="http://translate.google.com/translate?depth=1&hl=en&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&rurl=trans late.google.com&sl=zh-CN&tl=en&u=http://it.sohu.com/20130924/n387090469.shtml#ystfuv">report</a> in the Chinese news outlet <em>IT.sohu</em> that was <A href="http://www.unwiredview.com/2013/09/24/samsung-confirms-galaxy-note-3-with-flex-display-full-metal-sgs5-next-year-new-isocell-camera-tech-announced/">spotted</a> by <em>UnwiredView</em>.<br />
<br />
Samsung followed its initial Galaxy S4 launch with a special edition "S4 Active" featuring a waterproof build. A flexible OLED panel is viewed as the next step in ruggedization for the Note 3, adding shock- and drop-resistance to the device.<br />
<br />
Separate <A href="http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/biz/archives/2013/09/23/2003572768">reports</a> from the <em>Tapei Times</em> suggest the company is finally ready to transition away from the plastic housings of its Galaxy S handsets, with plans to introduce an aluminum or magnesium chassis for the next-generation model. Initial orders are expected to be placed with Catcher, a Taiwan-based manufacturer that already builds housings for the HTC One and Apple's iPhones and iPads.
