Samsung's new Galaxy phone may have unbreakable screen

SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics, the world's leading technology company by revenue, is likely accelerating the launch of its next-generation flagship Galaxy smartphone — which may come with a breakthrough unbreakable screen.

Codenamed “Project J” after mobile division chief JK Shin, development of the new Galaxy S IV could be aimed for release by as early as April, according to analysts and tech blogs.

And, as smartphones increasingly look alike — the converging form factor — an unbreakable screen could be a big selling point for the Galaxy, which is battling Apple Inc.'s iPhone to lead the US$200 billion plus smartphone market.

The Galaxy S IV is also expected to have bigger and better display, powerful quad-core processing power and a 13-megapixel camera, with picture density improving to 441 pixels per inch (ppi), a big improvement from the Galaxy S III's 306 ppi and better than the iPhone 5's 326 ppi.
