Samsung may give the Galaxy S IV an ‘unbreakable screen’

Galaxy S III Jelly Bean Update

Samsung (005930) faces a daunting task in its efforts to follow up its enormously successful Galaxy S III smartphone, but Reuters reports that the company may have something truly unique up its sleeve: An unbreakable screen. Reuters cites a recent report by UBS analyst Nicolas Gaudois speculating that Samsung has made “preparations for volume manufacturing of unbreakable plastic substrate displays” that could be ready for the Galaxy S IV’s rumored launch in April. Samsung declined to comment for the story, but we’ve known for a while that the company has been working on flexible displays that could arrive as soon as next year, so it’s not out of the realm of possibility that the Galaxy S IV could be the first to feature some variation of them. Or as Stanford Bernstein analyst Mark Newman told Reuters, “either the Galaxy S IV or S V will have unbreakable and even possibly flexible and foldable displays by 2014.”
