    I read an article over the weekend that says Samsung is working on the S4 that will have an unbreakable screen. They would like to deploy it sometime in 2013. After that they will be working on a phone that you can roll up like a dollar bill and slip it into your pocket.

    I doubt it will have an unbreakable screen. I would be pretty surprised actually if it did.

    Otherwise they have been talking about that device where the screen can bend for years, we will see if they actually follow through.

    Also moving thread into the Android Lounge, where General Android Talk like this is discussed.

    Using the term "unbreakable" is a bit bold, I think. But the glass (supposedly) will have a bit more flexible and will be able to withstand drops a lot better. Which is an advancement that is sorely needed in the mobile technology world.

    I bet it'll still scratch, however.

    I wouldn't believe a single thing written about an S4 right now. While I am sure Samsung is hard at work designing their next flagship phone I doubt any details at all exist. Besides I could write an article tomorrow and create some fantastic vision of the next S4, wouldn't mean a single thing.

    Give my 2 year old 5 minutes... no in fact 10 seconds alone with it and he'll have it in that many pieces you wouldn't be able to count them :D

    I always remember when here in the UK, a tech programme on the BBC called click was at a mobile phone event. JCB claimed they had made an indestructible phone, even had one of those big roller machines go over it... the presenter simply slammed it into the corner of a table smashing it right in front of the bemused JCB rep :D

    Some of the details I've heard on the S4, very similar size and specs to the HTC butterfly but better camera (13mp) and more storage.

    it does sound good.. unbreakable.. cool
    but...

    can glass be bendable? I doubt it..
    so this new bendable screen will not be glass.. it will be some plastic type material.
    glass by its own nature resists scratch... but can shatter
    plastic screens are can get scratches easier than glass.. but hard to break

    it is a given and take..

    If Samsung succeeds in making any of those innovations come true within the next 12 months, can someone please make an unbreakable plane or car already. :p

    But seriously, if zagg can make a screen protector that can make a screen harder to break, then Samsung can probably incorporate that technology into their screens. So there's definitely a strong possibility in regards to a virtually unbreakable glass. I'm not too sure about the "bendy" screen though. That sounds too crazy.

    Samsung did say that bendy screens aren't that far away but I doubt they would bring one out under the Galaxy S banner.

    There are some videos on it and yes it is completely crazy, trust me. I still think it might be a bit early for s4 rumor threads but hey who knows they keep getting earlier and earlier

    Great!

    This would definitely be one device on my list of devices. :)

    I've heard the S4 will not be released within a 10 mile radius of your 2 year old.....
