    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,

    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!

    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.

    Calling a screen unbreakable is like calling the Titanic unsinkable......and we all know how that turned out. So does this mean the new screen put out by Samsung can stop a bullet?:biggrin:

    If they worked into the substrate a top layer similar to the soft/vinyl screen protectors that MANY of us use anyway... they may have a winner. Except for the those that hate those screen protectors. I have a love hate with them. I love the protection, but much prefer the feel of glass.
