While most fans are excited to see the Samsung Galaxy S5 announcement at MWC 2014 in Barcelona next week, we have some exciting news on another possible new Samsung tablet in 2014 as well.
We all know that the Korean manufacturer has already unveiled the 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro series, but whispers are starting to emerge suggesting that Samsung may be planning to shake up proceedings once again in a big way.
You may remember that Samsung made the world take notice when they unveiled concept devices with flexible display technology. We thought that we would see a Samsung flexible phone in 2014 as the first produce of this technology, but a report from China recently leads us to believe that we may see a Samsung flexible tablet in 2014 as well.
Apparent ‘industry sources’ have told the site that Samsung may showcase a tablet that has the ability to bend itself at a 90 degree angle. It would be some sight to behold, but the real excitement is what functionality this flexible display can offer – to fend off criticism from those who may label the display as a gimmick.

We have already seen rumors that a Galaxy Note 3 is coming with a three-sided display, with Samsung being able to use the additional sides to display useful information via mini-widgets.
Will Samsung have similar ideas in mind for the flexible tablet, a device that Samsung will market as the ‘world’s first flexible tablet’? It sounds really exciting either way, so we can’t wait to see what happens next week in Barcelona.
The obvious fear is that this new technology is going to come at a steep price, as we’ve already witnessed with rather expensive pricing for the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 tablets.
Let us know what your thoughts is on this. Would you be interested in buying a flexible tablet from Samsung or not? We wonder what Apple thinks about this?
