According to Samsung via Reuters, the Galaxy S4 will sport the world’s first unbreakable OLED display. Since Samsung is also making the screens, it’s a coup for them. Let’s hope we all get to enjoy this benefit sometime soon.
Given Apple’s growing rift with Samsung in the supply realm, there might be faint hope for the iPhone 6 or 7 having an unbreakable screen, but the info sounds cool:
Samsung’s Galaxy S4, which is scheduled to get an official release date sometime in Q2 2013, will apparently feature the world’s first unbreakable OLED display.
That’s quite a USP in and of itself. And while it does sound slightly odd in the cold light of day, it’s worth remembering that Samsung is currently leading the field in this type of display creation.
‘And, as smartphones increasingly look alike an unbreakable screen could be a big selling point for the Galaxy, which is battling Apple’s iPhone to lead the $200 billion plus smartphone market,’ reports Reuters.
Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is expected to have a larger 5-inch 1080p display that’ll pack in an eye-wateringly high pixel density of 441ppi. It’s also expected to feature a 13-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, NFC, and Android Key Lime Pie – although the latter’s inclusion depends entirely on Google’s release schedule. Via: Know Your Mobile
Can you imagine how this would change even cases? I have my phone in a case mostly to protect it from my own klutziness, what if I could just forego a case or just pick one that looked great, but didn’t protect much (because it didn’t need to). That would be cool.
