It is expected to feature OLED display, while it is still uncertain whether the device would come with flexible display technology due to some mass production issues that has been encountered by Samsung display. The screen could use in-cell technology making the device lighter and slimmer than the current Galaxy S3. It may come with internal storage options of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.
