Highly Anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Teased At CES 2013… Sort Of

If you’re like me then you would have been waiting for some big announcement from the folks over at Samsung. Sure they unveiled a bunch of TVs and prototype devices but what everyone was really hoping for was the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3.

As you would have figured, they were both no shows. However what we did get was somewhat of a teaser as to what the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 might be like if rumors serve true. We’re of course referring to the multiple prototype YOUM flexible display handsets that weren’t shown off at the event.

If you’ve been following the Samsung rumor mill then you will be well aware of talks about the Galaxy Note 3 being the smartphones with a bendable screen. Given that it is speculated to go up to 6.3-inches in size, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could find the ability to contort a little quite useful.

In addition to being flexible, the YOUM display also makes the screen unbreakable. Now that is how Samsung puts it so it is defintely breakable, just not so easily we figure. I’m guessing all eyes are now on MWC 2013 for a possible glimpse of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3. Sigh.
