Supposedly, the new flagship in the huge smartphone category will come with a 5.9-inch AMOLED display. This is in contrast with previous rumors suggesting a 6.3-inch display, but we aren't complaining. There should be a stopping point before you can continue calling a device a phone and must then call it a tablet, and 6-inches seems like the right spot for that.

    There were a couple of other tidbits that came along for the ride with this rumor. One is that the device will likely have the Exynos 5 Octa-core chip in it. This is unsurprising, and would probably have been disappointing if it weren't the case. The other morsel is it will not have the flexible display that Sammy has been working on for the past couple of years. Apparently they still have some kinks to work out before we start seeing it show up in devices.

    That's it for the GNote3 rumor-mill. How many of you guys are going to skip the SGS4 and wait for this device?

    Flexible display ..."Apparently they still have some kinks to work out..." I wondered how they would deal with kinks in a flexible display!

    What could be really cool with a flexible display would be capacitative buttons on the top edge (i.e. places you don't usually hold the phone). Would be nice for the volume rocker, as well, because thru a case it can be a pain to adjust effectively (this assumes the software handles incidental/unintentional touches).

    Obviously, then, you can't have a case if you have a wrap-around screen and little to no bezel...so the phone itself would have to be pretty rugged

    Samsung should just make the same stuff but in different sizes. Have phones with a 4" & 5" screen, a "phablet" with a 6" screen, and tablets with 7" & 8" screens. All bezel-less, of course. Problem solved.
