Last week, we heard of the possibility that the Samsung Galaxy S IV would not only feature an “unbreakable” display, but it could also make its retail debut as early as April 2013. Well, a credible source now claims those rumors are more fantasy than reality. It appears the ultra-durable, bendable OLED display technology is still too premature to make its way onto the Galaxy S4 or any other smartphone in 2013 for that matter. “Flexible screens are still a while off,” claimed the trusted source. It looks like we’ll have to wait for the Galaxy S5 for an unbreakable design.
Unsurprisingly, especially with phones like the HTC Droid DNA and J Butterfly already on the market, the tipster essentially guarantees that we can expect the Galaxy S IV’s screen to be of 1080p Full HD resolution. Perhaps, the insider is referring to Samsung’s upcoming 4.99-inch FHD Super AMOLED display with 1080×1920 resolution and 441 pixel density? The source also squashed any hopes of a CES 2013 preview in Las Vegas in January, and we may not even see it at MWC 2013 in Barcelona in late February either. Like the Galaxy S III, the successor may just be too big of a deal to share the spotlight with numerous other devices. So, May 2013 again?
