A new report from the Korean media is shedding light on Samsung’s supposed plans for the Galaxy Note 4 launch event at IFA in September. Citing a senior executive at one of Samsung’s top local suppliers, The Korea Times says that Samsung will not only launch the Galaxy Note 4 at IFA, but also the oft-rumored Gear Glass and a slew of other unmentioned wearables, and a bunch of new curved OLED TVs. Speaking of curved, the report quotes a source as saying that the Galaxy Note 4 will surely have a curved AMOLED display, but only on one of the variants intended for niche markets, while the mass market variant will have a standard flat AMOLED display.

While the fact that the curved display on the Galaxy Note 4 will be limited to certain markets is disappointing, it’s not entirely unexpected either. Curved/flexible displays are probably not ready for mass production yet, and when you consider the amount of units Samsung sells for each flagship, mass producing flexible displays likely becomes even more difficult. Thankfully, we still have things like a QHD (2560×1440) display, a Snapdragon 805/faster Exynos chip, and a 16-megapixel camera to look forward to on the fourth-generation Note, and despite the lack of a curved display on all models, the device will probably also have a new form factor as has been confirmed by Samsung officials in the past.

As for Gear Glass and the supposed other wearables, we will just have to wait and see what Samsung unveils when it takes the stage to show off the Galaxy Note 4. A smartwatch based on Google’s Android Wear platform will likely be one of the devices that are announced, probably with the Gear 3 as was rumored recently.
