Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with flexible display reportedly in the works

Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 could get a makeover soon with a new flexible display replacing the conventional display, if a rumour is to be believed.
A report in Korean media suggests that the South Korean giant is planning to launch the Galaxy Note 3 in a new avatar that's sporting a flexible OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display. The site also suggests that the alleged Galaxy Note 3 with flexible display will not be produced in huge numbers and will be available as a limited edition device.

The site further notes that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with OLED display might be unveiled ahead of Samsung Electronics Show to be held in Las Vegas at CES 2014.

The news comes amidst LG and Samsung announcing end of dispute over next-generation display technology patents earlier on Tuesday. Both South Korean giants, Samsung and LG, have agreed to end a year-long battle over display technology patents that spawned a series of lawsuits. LG Display and Samsung Display respectively are the world's number one and two display panel manufacturers, and had locked horns over a number of patents for next-generation display technologies for TVs and other devices.

Meanwhile, Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy Note 3 phablet at the sidelines of IFA 2013 in Berlin.
