Samsung Galaxy S4 Rumors: No Unbreakable Display, Won't Be at CES
Speculations refuse to die down about Samsung's next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4. According to new rumors, Galaxy S4 will not have a flexible, unbreakable display and won't be showing up at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next month.
Citing an inside source, The Verge reported that the highly-speculated unbreakable display, the fruit of Samsung's longtime effort to commercialize flexible AMOLEDs, will not appear on the Galaxy S model in 2013. "Flexible screens are still a while off," the source was quoted in the report.
According to a CENT report, Samsung S4 will not make an appearance at the CES. Rather, the South Korean tech giant may introduce a number of electronic products at the event, heavily focused on televisions. Samsung plans to introduce its mobile products at a separate event after the CES.
Galaxy S4 rumors began to surface after Samsung released a short video earlier this week reminding the tech world to be ready for a surprise at the CES. Although the teaser revealed little, it said "2013, The World Awaits Something New," which was speculated to be an indication of the arrival of Galaxy S4 at the event.
Experts believe that it is unlikely that Samsung would release the next version of its flagship product as Galaxy S3 is still running hot. The Apple rival would rather deploy its resources behind promoting the newly released Galaxy Note 2. The Verge also reported that Samsung is working on a 6.3-inch display Galaxy Note 3. "At some point in the next year, and it could be very late in the year, we might fill in the largest gap in our screen size lineup," the source told.
The next-gen Galaxy smartphone is expected to feature a 13-megapixel camera and would come with an eight-core processor.
