Samsung Galaxy Note II rumored to feature 5.5-inch flexible AMOLED display

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is expected to be unveiled at a Samsung event in Berlin on August 29, but that hasn't stopped the Internet from getting in a last-minute rumor about the handset. A new report from the Korea IT Times claims that the Note II will feature a 5.5-inch flexible AMOLED display as well as a combo of Unbreakable Plane (UBP) tech and plastic substrate. It's said that this will reduce the thickness of the screen to 0.4mm, allowing for beefed up battery capacity.

While using these different display technologies on the Galaxy Note II wouldn't make the phone itself flexible, it could allow for a thinner, curved display. A previous report on the Note II also claimed that it'd feature a 5.5-inch display along with a quad-core processor, though it's worth noting that that rumor also claimed that Samsung won't be using the UBP tech on the new Note. As with many rumored devices, there's a bit of conflict about exactly what'll make the Note II tick, but thankfully we've only got a few more weeks to wait before Samsung makes its newest Note official. Does a handset with a 5.5-inch display sound like it'd be up your alley?
