Those who are looking forward for the release of Samsung Galaxy S5 with a curved display, it could be disappointing as the specs are yet not ready to support the device.
As per the Korean Herald, the limitations on the production prevent the GS5 feature of curved display. The production volume for the 5 inch Samsung flexible display is 30% of the complete production for the components of the display. The flagship series like Note 3 and GS4 have sold over 10 million handsets in the first few months of its sale and more, but it’s safe to stay with the same production as it may exceed the flexible display produced. Thus, GS5 needs more screens that might not be supplied for the curved displays.
Samsung launched the first Galaxy Round smartphone curved display in October. It was released for demo but it could only gross 50000 handset sales in Southern Korea. Galaxy Round was the curved version of Note 3. As the Korean company’s curved display technology is still in its initial development stage, Samsung still needs to get settled for some appealing action
The Samsung’s flexible display development commenced in January with the revelation of Youm technology at CES 2013! Reports still suggest that GS5 will feature flexible or curved display. However, Samsung seemed to deny this issue. The April reports indicated that Samsung will go with OLED flexible display. When Galaxy Round was launched, the OLED experts reported that Round did not make use of Samsung Youm Technique.
What’s In Store For Samsung’s Flexible Display Technology?
Though Samsung Galaxy S5 may not come with curved display, but most of the people expect that the Korean producer will feature flexible display and use in the coming devices. Samsung may release the technology in small volumes.
One idea is to release the GS5 with curved display. Often Samsung launched its flagship versions with specs that differ from the main source. While GS4 was released with Exynos 5 Octa CPU for 3G version with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU and later it released GS4 LTE with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU.
Rumours state that it could be released in two designs, metallic exterior with curved OLED screen or plastic body with OLED display.
