    [Rumor] Samsung Galaxy S IV Will Launch in April with "Unbreakable" Screen


    According to the latest industry intel, Samsung may be looking to accelerate the launch of their "Project J" device, which is the codename for the Galaxy S IV. Supposedly, they plan to launch the phone in April of 2013 instead of May (which is when they launched the SGS3 this year). Furthermore, the source of this info suggests the new flagship from Samsung will likely carry a unique feature. Apparently, the SGS4 will come sporting an "unbreakable" 5-Inch 441 ppi display. Now, we aren't sure how Samsung is going to pull off an "unbreakable" display, but we do have one idea, and Reuters seems to concur. Perhaps they finally worked out all the kinks in their flexible plastic display OLED technology.

    Here's a quote with a few more details below,

    And, as smartphones increasingly look alike - the converging form factor - an unbreakable screen could be a big selling point for the Galaxy, which is battling Apple Inc's iPhone to lead the $200 billion plus smartphone market.

    The Galaxy S IV is also expected to have bigger and better display, powerful quad-core processing power and a 13-megapixel camera, with picture density improving to 441 pixels per inch (ppi), a big improvement from the Galaxy S III's 306 ppi and better than the iPhone 5's 326 ppi.

    "Looking to the first half of 2013, we see evidence of Samsung likely accelerating the release of the Galaxy S IV - compared with May (this year) for the Galaxy S III," said UBS analyst Nicolas Gaudois. "We believe preparations for volume manufacturing of unbreakable plastic substrate displays continue. All in all, we could see a strong products push in the high-end in the first half, followed by other releases."

    Samsung declined to comment.

    Samsung, a major backer of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display, is a frontrunner in developing unbreakable screens, as OLED panels can replace glass substrate with plastic material. Down the road, mobile gadgets could be flexible as well as unbreakable.

    "Eventually, they'll have unbreakable and flexible displays. Either the Galaxy S IV or S V will have unbreakable and even possibly flexible and foldable displays by 2014. That's going to be a game-changer," said Mark Newman, an analyst at Stanford Bernstein in Hong Kong.
    Is it too soon to get excited about the "Next Big Thing" from Samsung? It's almost scary how fast time flies...

    As long as there's RAZR Maxx style battery internally I'm all in. Can be an evolutionary device if the hardware and software back up the hype.

    This is a new rumor from Reuters, which seems to corroborate yours. Reuters is a reputable news organization normally, which is why this newer story was worth posting. Thanks for sharing your previous rumor!

    Put a 2500 mah or better battery in that rascal and I'm all in. Believe I can stave off the pangs of upgradeitis 'til then.

    Unbreakable huh? Either it's a sapphire screen or they actually got flexible displays to work without hitches. Either way, this sounds really cool.

    Breakfast beats worrying.
