Samsung brought Galaxy Round last year with curved display and even reports are suggesting that Samsung will use similar screens Galaxy Note 4. Though Galaxy Round was not successful at all and Samsung only released a hand full of those in South Korea, the company is not stopping its R&D on flexible technology.
Along with Samsung, Apple is also working on flexible screen for its iWatch and Samsung’s another big rival LG already had showcased a smartphone with rounded display last year.
New reports from South Korean media Ledwn suggest that Samsung is actively resuming its work on flexible display. Until now Samsung delayed its investment in the A3 factory which is solely responsible for flexible display technology. Ledwn also reports that Samsung took this bold step because of increased interest in this type of technology and pressure from its business partners.
It will take several months for the plant to be fully operational, and reports suggest that the A3 factory will be up and running in November or December 2014, at the earliest.
Samsung need to finish building of this new plant as soon as possible as both the Galaxy S6 and Note 5 planned to be released sometime in 2015 will use flexible displays.
