    Don't you think "unbreakable screen" is an unrealistic request?

    Also, I'm interested in seeing what this phone will be like. Phablets are interesting to see.

    I mean "unbreakable", like in a flexible screen. This does not mean that you can bend the phone.

    This has been in development since quite a while.

    A Nexus version of this would be the sexiest thing ever.

    In the link above......

    "The KoreanTimes: The Galaxy Note II will use a 5.5 ultra-thin flexible AMOLED screen.
    The AMOLED in question uses an unbreakable Plane (UBP) and plastic substrate helping it reduce its thickness by 0.4mm. "

    Yep, and the Note II is said to be getting the flexible screen. Dont know how you could break that unless your pour some liquid on it. They bent that screen pretty good in demos.

    Here is one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJEHp15Hoo0

    Why would I want a BIGGER screen with LOWER resolution???

    I'll be looking for a good deal on some 720p Android.

    The LG Optimus G has better than 720p, 2GB RAM, quad core, memory slot, and removable battery.

    Let's see the price and if if it has global 3G and LTE.

    I actually like the new note, looks cool, specs are good. Just don't get the lower res and ppi. But, luckily the difference is small :)

    The Note II is an absolute ripoff of the GS3, Samsung should sue.

    Semi-realistic features

    A 5.3+ display

    Quad core Exynos 1.2GHz+

    2GB RAM

    16GB+ built in with dual MicroSD slot that automatically RAID (a little dream of mine I've had for a while)

    Large battery to retain the same if not better life then the correct generation.

    2MP front camera

    8MP back camera with increased optics

    Available in Pebble Blue, Black, Red, White, Titanium, Amber Brown, and Deep Orange.

    Unrealistic features

    Pure Android 4.1 Jellybean with no bloat

    Non glossy, soft touch back on all colors but white (for dirt management)

    Flexible "unbreakable" display

    Slightly curved glass

    Dual ROM chips, like dual BIOS chips, if you flash a bad install on one, you pop the cover and flip a small switch, then you are back to a stock ROM where you can reflash your corrupted ROM. Remove one aspect of bricking.

    Flexible display is not unrealistic, Samsung is working on this.

    What is this supposed to mean???

    Well considering that samsung and apple take almost all the profits on the mobile market, i'd have to agree with him

    yep, samsung takes home almost all the android profits. everyone else is treading water and will probably go under soon.

    and samsung pays of developers so that new android apps will run on samsung phones. sometimes its exclusivity, sometimes to make sure the comparability is there. so there is no more nonsense like skype video not working on a lot of phones
