Specs of Samsung’s flexible display smartphone rumored


Last updated: October 4th, 2013 at 18:48 UTC+02:00

With Samsung officially acknowledging the existence of its smartphone with a flexible display, we were expecting to see details about its hardware start cropping up in the rumor mill, and that is exactly what has happened today. The folks over at AndroidSaS have published some specs of the device, though since they aren’t exactly a well-known source, be sure to grab a pinch of salt before reading further.

According to sources familiar with the matter, the flexible display-toting handset will feature a 4.7-inch display of 720p resolution, a quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash – those specs sound pretty much similar to the Galaxy S3 (except for RAM, which was 1GB on the quad-core S3, though the processor could be the newer Snapdragon 800 as well), and it could be that Samsung is recycling an older device to showcase the flexible display, instead of putting in top-of-the-line specs and pricing it higher than it needs to be priced. On the software front, it will reportedly run on Android 4.3 out of the box.

Again, everything is unconfirmed, and since previous rumors have suggested that the device could be a Galaxy Note 3 variant, there’s no telling what we’ll see in the final product. With the official unveiling supposedly happening next week, it won’t be long before we find out what Samsung has in store for us.
