The Samsung Galaxy Note III could be facing some big trouble. With the phablet’s expected September debut drawing near, a new report has surfaced suggesting that the company is experiencing serious production issues with the handset.
According to a report issued by Korean publication Asia Economic, Samsung is still focusing on making its new flexible OLED display work within the upcoming Galaxy Note III, but the recent manufacturing yield hasn’t reached the point where the company will be able to meet projected demand. If Samsung is unable to alleviate this issue, the company may be forced to use an older display type in the Galaxy Note III.
If this report turns out to be true, Samsung may not be able to fix the issue in time, unless the rumors have been false and the company plans on releasing the device later this fall. The possibility of two different display types could also be a product of Samsung offering multiple variants of the upcoming phablet; recent reports have indicated that Samsung may be working on multiple models of the Note III, similar to what the company did with its Galaxy S IV handset.
