Samsung just sent press invitation to their Unpacked 2014 Episode 2 event, which will take place on September 3rd. It's highly likely that the Galaxy Note 4 will be announced during the event (they even say "note the date").

As always before a major Samsung launch, we heard several reports (rumors?) regarding this device. Last month SamMobile claimed to have exclusive info detailing a QHD (2560x1440) AMOLED panel. On the same day, the Korea Times reported that Samsung will actually unveil two Note 4 variants - on with a regular flat display, and another with a curved one. A month earlier, a senior VP at Samsung Electronics said that the Note 4 will have a "new form factor".

My own personal bet, is that during this event Samsung will launch a single device, which will sport a flat (glass-based) QHD Super AMOLED display, probably 5.7" in size. This is a major launch for Samsung and they do not have the capacity to adopt a flexible OLED yet. But it's likely that they will later on release a variant of this phone with a curved OLED, maybe in a different design than the Galaxy Round, and maybe this time it will also launch globally.

The Note 3, by the way, had a 5.7" Full-HD Super AMOLED display (386 PPI, PenTile). Samsung launched several variants of this phone, including the Galaxy Round - the company's first flexible OLED product. The Round had a similar display (5.7", Full-HD) - but one that is curved horizontally.

Oculus

If Oculus signs an agreement with SDC to buy 200k display with an option for 300k more for the CV1 of the Rift, what effect would that have on the price of the Note4?

JAMF, I don't see the connection between Oculus and the Note 4 price? 500,000 panels is not significant for SDC (last year they produced 200 million AMOLDE panels).

OK I just wondered, if SDC expected to produce an initial batch of 5 million Note4 panels and Oculus would account for 5-10% of that, would it change the price a bit?

Subsequent batches might shift to Oculus requiring a larger percentage.

I believe that once Oculus

I believe that once Oculus went into commercial production, they will probably use a real custom display fitted just for them. So this should not impact prices for Samsung Electronics.
