Although the display of Samsung’s Galaxy S II uses Gorilla Glass, it’s certainly not unbreakable – as various videos on the web are demonstrating, and as some users have seen for themselves.
With that in mind, Samsung is reportedly planning to equip its next-generation flagship Android phone, the rumored Galaxy S4, with an unbreakable screen.
According to Reuters, Samsung “is likely accelerating the launch” of the S4, and the handset could become available as soon as April 2013.
The info comes not long after we’ve heard that, in fact, Samsung might be forced to delay the release of the Galaxy S4 – because it’s having problems with mass-producing 5 inch Super AMOLED Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays for it.
Delayed or not, if the S4 comes with a 5 inch 1080p display, it will be a direct competitor to HTC’s Droid DNA (which is already available in the US, via Verizon Wireless). The new Galaxy should also feature a quad-core processor, and a 13MP rear camera.
The Galaxy S III has been sold in more than 30 million units around the world, and it’s estimated that a total of 40 million units will be shipped before the end of the year. So the upcoming Galaxy S4 will have big shoes to fill.
