The Korea Herald has recently released a report that tells the story about what kind of display will not make its way to the next years biggest launch the Galaxy S5 from Samsung. Yes, its right as the heading says “No means No”, the Galaxy S5 can not have a Flexible display as Samsung will struggle with the manufacturing it needs to meet the demand for a Galaxy S line device. The report shines some light on the production capabilities that Samsung has when its comes to the Flexible displays. The current production lines are capable of handling 8,000 5.5-generation sheets per month to produce up to 500,000 flexible panels for smartphones, with a 30 percent yield that’s just not enough. Kim Jong-hyun, an analyst at Seoul-based Eugene Investment & Securities made the following statement “The current capacity for flexible panels is not high enough for the Galaxy S5, which will be rolled out early next year. Curved ones will be unveiled late next year as a Galaxy variant rather than as a flagship model”
Well I personally think that this may come as a disappointment to a very few people and a good news for the large share as Flexible display of the Galaxy Round (Samsung’s first Flexible Display Smartphone) didn’t seem to win many hearts. There is no comments from Samsung on this yet but it may be not worth commenting after all. The release of the Galaxy S5 is supposed to happen sometime early in 2014 and till now a 1440p Display, 64-Bit processor and a 16MP ISOCELL camera are all we can tie the strings to, while a Metal body and OIS (optical image stabilization) for the Camera are the wild cards.
